City life has its own set of perks and lifestyle. What happens when it begins to bog you down with its relentless challenges and everyday bashing? People yearn for a holiday and most often land up by making a trip to the ‘regular’ destinations squeezed tightly in the holiday ‘entitlement’ you get from your workplace. However, if you have an extended vacation and want to truly relax in destinations that give you the feeling of warmth and nature’s caress, then read on.
Situated at a distance of 313 kms by road from Delhi is the stunning region of Ramgarh. It is also accessible by rail (Kathgodam Railway station is the nearest railhead to Ramgarh situated at a distance of 45kms.) and air (Pantnagar airport is the nearest airport, which is located about 76kms from Ramgarh. Taxis are easily available from the airport to Ramgarh).
Ramgarh’s sublime aura and spirit, lush green landscapes and abundance of fruit make it an extremely welcoming and relaxing breakaway. We recommend spending a day or two just doing nothing – just soak in the unique splendour and secluded charm of this region. Stay at V Resorts where the relaxed and pleasing ambience immediately puts you at ease. The rooms exude the charm of the different seasons and allow you magnificent views of the outdoors from within. The smiling and courteous staff seems to assure you that your holiday will be exactly how you want it. Ramgarh is not too far away but it seems like an entirely different world with its luscious forests, exotic silence and yet has the capacity to indulge in a host of activities that will thrill its guests. The varied topography encourages activities like trekking, sight-seeing and nature walks, cycling, tea tasting among the lush tea gardens and an unbelievable view of the sun setting. In all this activity too is a mysterious tranquility that affords peace and quietude. The best feature of Ramgarh though remains that the environs urge you to be silent and connect with your thoughts – pen them down or just listen silently. It is no surprise then that scholarly stalwarts like Mahadevi Verma and Rabindranath Tagore were able to create poetic genius when they visited. Experience Ramgarh – it’s the perfect long stay getaway
The locales of Narkanda are not easily captured in words since it looks different in every season. You need time to discover this wonder of nature and so a long and extended vacation would be simply perfect. This region of myriad hues is at a distance of 434 kms by road from Delhi. However, there are no direct flights or trains or even buses from Delhi to there. For those wanting to reach there by air, a flight to Chandigarh is your best option. From Chandigarh you would need to hire a cab to reach Narkanda. By bus, an Inter-city bus would get you to Rampur and a state transport bus would get you to Narkanda.
During the winter months every part of the terrain is covered with thick layers of pristine snow and it seems like one is in far removed from the blasé and staid city life. There are ample opportunities to explore the region and the activity that most visitors come here for is skiing. Narkanda is friendly – even the first time ski ‘enthusiast’ can safely take on the smaller and easily negotiated slopes. The challenging slopes are put to the test by the experienced skiers putting them in a mysterious union with the terrain. Stay in V Resorts and they will provide you with the skiing gear so all you need to do is enjoy the thrill. Their well-manicured premises and hospitable staff complete the experience. In summer, the region is draped is pink tones of the cherry and apple blossoms and activities like Rock Climbing, Burma Bridge, Valley Crossing, Tree Climbing and the likes will keep you pumped and yet blissfully relaxed. Make time for yourself and treat your senses to the stunning vistas and myriad activities which must be savored and not rushed.
