Hello IMers,

Would be grateful for some advice/opinions.

1. I know this is very subjective, but to those who have been to both parts of the Himalayas, which do you find more beautiful: Kumaon (Binsar/Dhanachuli/Almora) or Kinnaur (Kalpa/Sangla/Chitkul)?

2. Where would the weather be more pleasant in late March/April time frame?

3. Which parts would have fewer crowds/tourists at that time of the year?

4. Which of these parts are easier on children (aged 8 and 5)?

Thank you for any pointers.

best

[QUOTE=fnm500;2063153]Hello IMers,

Would be grateful for some advice/opinions.

1. I know this is very subjective, but to those who have been to both parts of the Himalayas, which do you find more beautiful: Kumaon (Binsar/Dhanachuli/Almora) or Kinnaur (Kalpa/Sangla/Chitkul)?

Ans : Both are beautiful but Kumaon offers wide view of mountain peaks range(almost 180 degree at places) which Kinnaur doesn't have. Kinnaur gives closer view of peak where view of peaks in Kumaon is bit far. Frankly, I couldn't give you preference one over the other since both has it's own charm.

2. Where would the weather be more pleasant in late March/April time frame?

Ans : Weather remains pleasant in both these places during the said period.

3. Which parts would have fewer crowds/tourists at that time of the year?

Ans : Kumaon

4. Which of these parts are easier on children (aged 8 and 5)?

Ans : No differences, both these places are easily accessable
