An escape to the little heaven “Munsyari”

Munsyari, a small himalayan town in Uttarakhand, is a perfect abode in the Kumaon ranges.

A little disconnect from the daily, it is also known as little Kashmir.  This nature’s paradise is quite popular among adventure lovers and trekkers due to the trekking options available around Munsyari. Khaliya Top (height 11500 ft) is one of the well known treks that starts from here.  This town is also the home for Milam, Namik Namik and Ralam Glaciers. The trekking routes are rich in flaura and fauna, as well as different species of birds. I plucked these strawberries on the way to Khaliya Top.


I stayed 2-3 days here and loved the warmth of the locals. One can easily find good and budget guest houses here.  The options of staying at the locals homes should also be considered. It rained almost every day here in May. The weather changes anytime here and once it rains, the cold weather will give you chills. The villagers told me the winters turns this places white in snow.

You can find food options like Momos, Omlette, major non-veg food here. My gang found a small breakfast restaurant that also served non-veg and enjoyed some awesome chicken curry. I had some amazing Momos at a food joint named Nilkanth Fast food.

The view of the Panchachuli hills is amazing from most of the terraces. The hills looked something like this from the guest house I stayed named “Hayat Paradise”.


How to reach Munsyari :

Munsiyari is a very long drive from Delhi and a break journey at Vijaypur, Chaukori or Almora is advisable. If you are traveling by public transport, you may take a bus from Anand Vihar ISBT to Almora and then another bus to Munsiyari. One can also take a bus from Pithoragarh, which is 135 km from Munsiyari. Read more at euttaranchal.
