Travel to Almora

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

If you are traveling to Almora from a distant location, then the fastest way to get to the hill station is through a combination of a flight and taxi. You can board a flight to the nearest airport, called Pantnagar Airport, and then get a taxi or bus from there to head to Almora. Pantnagar Airport is located at a distance of around 115 km from the hill town of Almora. You can also board an international flight to Indira Gandhi International Airport, which is well-connected to the hill town via roadways.

By Train

Again, as Almora does not own a railway station, you might be pondering over how to reach Almora by train. With its proximity to Kathgodam Railway Station, which is about 81 km from the hill town, you can easily board a train to this railway station from cities like: Delhi, Lucknow, and Kolkata; and then hire a taxi or bus to get to Almora.

By Road

If you have a love for road journeys, and you are traveling from a North Indian city or a nearby hill town, such as Haldwani, Nainital, Mussoorie, and more; opting for roadways is probably the best way to get to Almora. There are plenty of government or private buses that connect other parts of India to the hill town. Besides that, you can also hire a taxi, or rent a car, and reach the destination while using Almora map to navigate your way without a hassle.
