    I am travelling to Mukteshwar with my family by the end of October. How is the place and what are some of the attractions close by?

    Mukteshwar is a small but beautiful town, it's a little further up from Nainital, another 50km up which takes around 2 hours to reach. It is a tourist place but less crowded than Nainital. The name Mukteshwar comes from the Mukteshwar Dham which is a 350-year-old Shiv Ji temple.

    Muskteshwar Dham (Mukteshwar Temple) - This temple is located at the highest point in the town, which is one of the main attractions in Mukteshwar. Once you reach the top the view is absolutely amazing and it is worth spending some time there

    Chauli Ki Jali - This again is another popular tourist place to visit in Mukteshwar and many people visit this place for the view of the Kumaon valley. There are some stunning rock formations which should also be seen. For those who like adventure rock climbing and rappelling is also conducted there.

    Bhalu Gaad Waterfalls - To reach the waterfall there is a small trek of 1.5km. The waterfall is not that big but worth seeing, as its something different with a little adventure. Some tourists also prefer having lunch by the waterfall, so it's a good idea to take some food along with you to make it a bit more fun.
