I got to know about TravelTriangle weekend getaways while browsing on Facebook. I chose Kanatal out of the options available, as I had already been to the rest of the places offered by TravelTriangle for the particular weekend. Javed from TravelTriangle guided me through the booking process, making sure that everything went smoothly.
A much needed break from the hectic work schedule was on the cards. Along with the excitement, also came a bit of anxiety as it was the first time with TravelTriangle
I boarded the bus at 10 pm from Akshardham metro station. It didn’t take long before all the travelers were introduced to each other. With the gelling together of people, the trip became easier.
Day 1: Heading to Kanatal
We arrived in Kanatal at 8.30 am and checked into the Camp Carnival Resort. The rooms at the resort were pretty neat and comfortable. As we had our breakfast soon after, the arrangement for food seemed brilliant.
Post breakfast, we did some adventure activities inside the camp which included rock climbing and firefox. A few of us skipped rappelling due to tiredness.
After lunch, we paid a visit to the Surkanda Devi temple via bus. From the drop off point, the temple was a two-kilometer uphill trek. An hour later, we reached the top of the hill and the view was incredible. We caught our breath, clicked some pictures, and enjoyed the stunning panoramic view of the mountains before heading back to our campsite.
We arrived in Kanatal at 7 pm and got ready for a bonfire dinner party. We had a gala time at the bonfire party. We enjoyed the night by singing songs, having good conversations, and devouring on some good food and drinks. I went back to sleep at 1 am.

Day 2: Jetskiing in Tehri Lake
The next day, we had breakfast at 9 am and got ready to check out from the resort in Kanatal at 10 am. On our way back home, we stopped at the Tehri Lake and Dam for some sightseeing.
At the lake, we got a chance to do some jet skiing. Thanks to the superb bargaining skills of Javed, we got his price down to 180 rs per person for one round of the entire lake on the jetski. Afterwards, we stopped at a local dhaba nearby for lunch at 2 pm. An hour later, we started our journey back to New Delhi. We arrived back in Delhi at midnight.
A weekend that drained out my stress and added perspective to my life. I felt really happy after having discovered a new place, having met new people, and having undertaken yet another journey for my travel credentials.
- Jetskiing at Tehri Lake was fun
- Had an amazing time with travelers at the bonfire dinner party.
- Food at Tehri dam was not good.
- The trip could’ve had aa longer adventurous trek through the forest.
Tips to travelers:
- Be it a male or a female traveler, you have to travel with an open mind towards meeting new people to have an amazing experience on such a trip.
