Visit Ranikhet - Best of Ranikhet

Don’t you just love it when India hits you in the face with a bit of random historical romance? Raja Sudhardev wooed Rani Padmini here, so obviously it became her favourit-est place ever. The name means “Queen’s Meadow.” The cool hill station’s tourist offerings mainly an Army museum (the military has a strong presence here), two temples and the Chaubatia Gardens (lovely apple orchards). It’s right in view of some western Himalayan peaks. The whole setting makes it one of the best places in the country to just kick back and chiiiiil.
