Kanatal is one of the top breathtaking destinations that charms travelers from far and wide. Kanatal, a quaint village situated in the mesmerizing valley of Uttarakhand is an unexplored paradise where happiness meets heaven. Situated at the height of 2590 Metre, Kanatal is one of the hidden gems of Uttarakhand and less popular than any of its neighboring cities such as Mussoorie and Rishikesh.
We have visited many destinations, but Kanatal was there on our bucket list for quite a long time. So, I and my friends decided to go on a weekend getaway to Kanatal. We already knew about the fantastic services that TravelTriangle provides, so it was no brainer for us to find a trip organizer. We booked a trip of 3 days in Kanatal and needles to say, our trip was such a wonderful experience.
