“Live your life by a compass, not a clock.” – Stephen Covey
Nature is always liberating. We live in a country which is incredibly beautiful, full of charm and there is no end to exploring new places. Its often said that you meet yourself when you travel. The feeling of being an alien to a place when you see a map transforms into something beautiful when you visit the place and a sense of alienation transcends to familiarity and adventure. Its not only destination that you fall in love with but the roads that are less traveled. Popularly known as the cultural heart of Uttarakhand, Almora is famous for its scenic beauty, food, and culture. The town is located at an average elevation of 1, 646 meters above sea level. Earlier this place was known as Rajapur, developed by the locals of this place called Kumaoni.
