About Chaubatia Gardens, Ranikhet
This garden is famous for its beautiful orchards of yummy peaches, plums, apricots and juicy apples. The name ‘Chaubatia’ means a junction of paths as it is the point where the four cities meet. The cities are- Ranikhet, Pikholi, Bhargaon and Dehrti. It is known that the then Viceroy of India was Lord Mayo and he was so enchanted by the beauty of Chaubatia that he ordered it to be made the center for the British Cavalry and thus was set up the Cantonment of Chaubatia.
