I am wondered that we have such beautiful places in India. My fresh tour to Sitlakhet was amazing. This is the quite place for vacation spread in small area. Basically, it is a small village having green surroundings. The Forest Rest House is the best accommodation available in this town. However, some hotels and lodgings are also available but you might face difficulty to get room in peak season. State government always tried to restrict the visitors at this place because it is the most beautiful and charming location of Uttaranchal. The view from corridor or the balcony of the rest house is breath-taking. The astonishing snow range visible from the room is different experience.
Sitlakhet is quaint Indian tourist place away from the hustle cities. This town comes under Almora district with less population. It is one of the secret tourist places of India and very fewer people reach here, though it is the real beauty of the nature. Ranikhet is only 24 km away from the spot so if you feel to spend more time in Uttaranchal you can visit Ranikhet too. Our destination is at 1900 meters altitude from the sea level located at Syahi Devi hills.
