Kasar Devi, Almora

(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Walk the trail among the pine and deodar trees to reach the holy site at Kasar Devi. Dating back to 2nd century CE, the shrine honors the Kasar Devi and the temple hosted plenty famous people such as Swami Vivekananda, Bob Dylan, and Allen Ginsburg. Feel the serene vibe of the surrounding forest at the temple and enjoy the scenic view of Himalayas and the Hawabagh as you absorb the fresh air and spiritual atmosphere. Prepare for a hike since the temple is hard to reach because of the steep climb to the hilltop. To visit Kasar Devi on your trip to Almora, use our Almora itinerary maker.
