Ranikhet – a 19th Century cantonment town has come a long way. Today, it is a huge Indian cantonment with the Kumaon regiment and is a base for many military exercises. This walk will take you through buildings of that era – including churches and old colonial bungalows and the hilly forests that called the British back.
While the history of the town goes back to the 16th Century, there isn’t much left from the area. The walk will start from one of the old churches of the region and we will be seeing 4 of them. 2 are converted into wool workshops for war widows, one is a relic and one remains functional. We will also be visiting some of the old grant bungalows and stepping in for tea in one of them.
So visit a different side of this cantonment town. It is a side that you would have been reading of. But few would have guided you past this. The essence of Ranikhet is truly captured in this walk.
