Kanathal, Uttrakhand – An Adventurous Road Trip

In September 2nd 2017, we have visited Kanathal located in the Indian state of Uttrakhand with my company colleagues of R Systems Private Limited. This town is located with surrounding by mountain and river. Being a tourist place Kanathal is very popular now these days because the town of Kanathal lies near Mussoorie.

There are many places that you can visit during your trip to Kanatal, and the Surkhanda temple is the most popular religious destination.

You can also take a walk through Kodia Jungle, which is a dense forest area located at a distance of around one kilometer away from Kanatal. You can spot a few wild animals by taking a ride through the jungle in a jeep, and you can also see many natural springs that are quite prevalent in the region.

The Tehri dam in the region is also a must-see destination in Kanatal.

How to reach Kanathal?

From its distance from New Delhi gives us the better idea to reach Kanathal.

The nearest airport to Kanathal is Jolly Grant but this is almost 92 kms far from the destination.

There are two railway stations near to Kanathal these are Dehradun and Rishikesh but these are also kept a huge distance from the Kanathal Destination. Dehradun is situated 85kms from Kanatal and the distance from Rishikesh to Kanatal is 75kms.

The recommended way that is by road. Kanathal is well connected with motorable road from Haridwar-Rishikesh-Narendra Nagar- Kanathal-Mussoorie-Dehradun. The luxury and normal buses always available from New Delhi ISBT or Kashmiri Gate to Tehri, Chamba, and Mussoorie.
