Ranikhet is the place which mirrors the best of the heavenly Himalayas; lush green forests, majestic mountains, delivate plant life and attractive wild life. To view nature and its elements in full harmony, the right place is Ranikhet.
At an altitude of 1829 mts above sea level, ths hill resort is undoubtedly a tourist's paradise. The scented mountain breeze, fresh and pure, the singing of birds, the panoramic view of the Himalayas- the sights, sounds and smell leave the onlooker spellbound.
Being a cantonment ( the place was selected as a hill staion for British troops and accordingly the cantonment was established in 1869), the Kumaon regimental Centre, Museum and Memorial are the jewels of Ranikhet.
