Ranikhet, also known as Queen’s meadow is a beautiful old-time hillock situated in Almora district of Uttarakhand. Dense oak and pine forests on the hills of Ranikhet provide a dazing view against the Himalayan Mountain range. Healthy climate, Burbling streams, cool breeze and sweet bird chirps are what bring you to this place.
