Local buses for so many destinations will be a bit tight. You can contact mr. D.c. Tiwari for e taxi detals thoughh : http://almoraboy.blogspot.co.uk/2006...formation.html

You can try and make your plan such that you stay at one place for a couple fo days. So you will have to see two places in a single day maybe ( ex: almora and mukteshwa together)

Beware of kmvn refund practices

Beware of kmvn booking cancelation .
It seems that some kind of racket is going on in central reseration nainital. These people are not even refunding the payment even after passage of 15 days of cancelation.
Beware of kmvn.

Flights to Pantnagar airport have again stopped! And poor Pithoragarh, it will have to be contented with two test flights for a long time, until a better use is identified, maybe multiple tennis courts on the airstrip.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

Taxis in season will be plentiful. It'll only take about 3 hours so no need to stop anywhere.

Wannabe drivers have a place to hone their skills.

You'll have to upload to a public website (e.g Youtube) and then paste the link here.

Araib, I don't think it has been mentioned in the thread whether any newspaper ad has been published or not. Could you post your suggestion in that thread itself please, with names of local papers and if possible contact details too. Thanks

And for anyone else with suggestions and ideas, please post them in that thread. It is a long thread but from the first post there are links so you can jump to the most recent updates. If ideas are posted in threads such as this one, the family wouldn't see them.

Thanks, and do please do all you can to get those posters out there.
