Nanda Devi – the second highest peak in India is visible from Mukteshwar mountain tops. The spellbinding view is accentuated by the orange and golden hues of the sunrise.

5. An Offbeat Experience For Eager Travellers

Travellers adore going to places like Sitla because it is such pure joy to explore the Himalayas in a unique way. Sitla is a picturesque hill station with amazing views of the snow-covered mountains and is sprinkled with many dense regions with oak and pine trees. If you see a stone bungalow in this area, don't assume it's a creepy haunted house; instead, it's a British-era property called Sitla Estate.

Best Time To Visit Mukteshwar

Any time of the year is the perfect time to visit Mukteshwar. While the winter season is the greatest time to visit if you love snow, the summer months are best for sightseeing. Average to heavy rainfall makes Mukteshwar appear greener and more beautiful during the monsoon season. But this is also the landslide season. So be sure to thoroughly research your destination before going.
