Mukteshwar

Mukteshwar

Standing on the top of the Chauri Jhali gazing into the vistas of the Almora valley and the tremendous view it commands. I don’t know much of suicidal tendencies, but when you are at the edge of the peak, I do sometimes have the urge to jump in the abyss. Over the years when its cousins across distance have been flooding in with more tourist, more hotels, more taxis. I am glad to say Mukteshwar hasn’t changed much; it continues just to be a “point” which can be ticked off in the excursions list from Nainital. The beauty of the place is unparalleled to any of its cousins. Jim Corbett himself fell in love with the place in 1929 when he came to Mukteshwar in search of a Man eating tiger.
