We're going to visit Kumaon this October along with our 3 years old kid.
Here is our itinerary:
D1 Kathgodam to Kausani. Overnight stay at Kausani
D2 Overnight stay at Kausani
D3 Kausani to Chaukori. Overnight stay at Chaukori
D4 Chaukori to Munsiyari. Overnight stay at Munsiyari
D5 Overnight stay at Munsiyari
D6 Overnight stay at Munsiyari
D7 Munsiyari to Binsar. Overnight stay at Binsar
D8 Binsar to Kathgodam

We need to hire private car for the transfers (from Kathgodam to Kausani, from Kausani to Chaukori, from Chaukori to Munsiyari, from Munsiyari to Binsar and finally from Binsar to Kathgodam). We might need a car for sightseeing at Kausani and Munsiyari as well.

My query is whether we need to hire a car for the whole trip or only for the pickups and drops along with the sight-seeings?

Somewhere I found a list of reliable drivers. Does it still hold good:
a. Anand Goswami - 09568274128 / 09719639279 / 09456722952
b. Pradyuman - 09411322992
c. Babbu - 09719223476
d. Anil Bisht - 09719276921
e. Anil 09719276904

Please suggest.

Thanks,
Aryan

I had taken service from Mr. Anand Goswami two years back. I am very satisfied. I recommended him to others & feedback is they are also very satisfied. You can contact him without any hesitation.

One more thing I would suggest you that your D1 & D8 plan is very hectic specially 3 years old kid will be with you. In spite of staying 3 days in Munsiyari you can put one day in Nainital in D1. Also in Nainital lot of natural beauty will be waiting for you. Now choice is yours.

We had done a tour viz. Corbett - Kausani - Munsiyari - Chaukori - Binsar - Jageshwar - Naukuchitaal - Kathgodam with Shri Anand Goswami in last week of March & first week of April in 2016.

I have no hesitation in recommending his services. Found him to be dependable and reasonable rates too.

Very useful thread!

I have also used the services of Anand Goswami and Babbu whose details I got through this thread - they are both good.

In Feb2018 I went to Chaukori, Munsiyari and Mukteshwar/Sitla.

This time I took DAYAL GOSWAMI (+919758127038) as the driver. I was very satisfied. Dayal has very reasonable rates, is very knowledgeable about the region, drives smoothly and steadily and he keeps his car (Tata Indigo) in immaculate condition. Very strong recommendation.

Hi SSG.
What was the rate he charged ? Like ₹/km and per day wage.
I'm going on 23rd December for 8days tour & planning to take him as my chauffeur.
Eagerly waiting for your reply.
Thanks

Hi Saumyadip,

It was a fixed fee per day - I suggest you call him as prices of diesel etc. have changed. The only point to note is that since he has his own car - there is no agent's commission. Please give him my regards.
