I completely agree....these places are crowdy & noisy and a nature lover may not enjoy this.

@Lustforlife.

I do agree with you. Now, what itinerary should I opt. Is it like below ? --

Day-1 -- Reahing KGM, proceed to Nainital. 1 Night in Nainital.

Day-2 -- Move to Sitlakhet.

Day-3 -- Kausani via Ranikhet and ?????

Day-4 -- Chakauri via Jagswar and ???????

Day-5 -- Munsiyari, via Patal Bhubaneswar, Bageswar and ????????
Day-6 -- Munsiyari.

Day-7 -- Binsar
Day-8 -- Binsar.

Day-9 -- KGM.

Please suggest. I am not interested in paragliding etc. But in has an interest in boating just see the Taals.

Friends, I am a budget traveler but in this trip I think it would be a big budget. However, I set up my mind to visit Kumaon.

I visited the KMVN website but I could not found the opening date of booking. Yesterday I observed they opened their booking up to 31/03/2017.

Till now I am in confusion in regard to my itinerary.

I am also in search of Holiday Home in Naital and Kausani too.

Regards.

Respected friends,

My final Itinerary is as follow :-

Day-1 -- Reach at KGM by Bagh Exp and move to Nainital. Afternoon sightseeing and
Stay.

Day-2 -- Nainital sightseeing.

Day-3 -- Move to Kausani -- enroute Ranikhet etc.

Day-4 -- Move to Munsiyari

Day-5 -- Munsiyari.

Day-6 -- Move to Chaukori and stay.

Day-7 -- Move to Binsar

Day-8 -- Binsar.

Day-9 -- Binsar to KGM and board on Bagh Exp.

I have contacted some Travel Agents for hiring Car (Alto)

Two of them offered me reasonable rate. Difference is Rs.1000/- for 9 days (KGM to KGM)

But I am in confusion who will be better and/or more dependable.

Anyone has idea or experience about Kathgodam Taxi Union or Naina Tours & Travels?

Please guide me. Upon whom should I depend. Please.

If I am correct then Naina Tours & Travel would be the higher one.

Naina Travels is quoted lower than other.

On the said basis should I go with the Naina Travels ?

Are they dependable ?

In comparison to money Naina offered me lowest till date on my contact.

Advice please.

03-02-2018 -- Reaching Lal Kuan at about 8-40 AM and proceed to Nainital.

04-02-2018 -- Naiital.

There should not be much of problem during this time of the year, except for the road of Munisyari that is not in good condition between Thal to Munsiyari. In case of heavy snowfall the road may also get block temporarily

Thanks a ton Biswas Da for your kind reply and / advice.

Should I book accommodation in advance ? I booked only KMVN Binsar for 09-02 and 10-02. I also book a Car from YTDO Tours & Travels for my 9 days trip from Lalkuan to Kathgodam.

I do not think so that you will require booking in February as it will exam days or almost exam days for kids, so families will not venture for vacations at that time
