Ranikhet is a hill station and cantonment town in Almora district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is the home for the Kumaon Regiment & Naga Regiment and is maintained by the Indian Army.

Ranikhet is at an altitude of 1869 metres above sea level and within sight of the western peaks of the Himalayas.


Summers are the peak season when everyone wants to escape the heat on the plains. The best time to visit Ranikhet is from September to November and again from April to June, when the weather is bracing.

It can be invigorating.
