Mukteshwar MahadevTemple, Nainital

(4.5/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Take a long winding road up to Mukteshwar MahadevTemple--perched at 2,286 m (7,500 ft), it affords spectacular views of the jagged, snow-capped Himalayan ranges. During fruiting season the surrounding orchards bear apples, peaches, and pears, which you can pluck right from the tree. Religious pilgrims will probably find more to enjoy here than others, meditating and praying in this majestic and remote place. Still, casual visitors can appreciate the hikes with striking vistas, as well as the chance to observe birds of prey as they scour the ground for a meal (bring your binoculars). Plan your Mukteshwar MahadevTemple visit and explore what else you can see and do in Nainital using our Nainital vacation trip planner.
