Kathiyan, Chakrata


Kathiyan is a beautiful village about 36kms from Hanol, at a height of 7000feet. 5kms from Hanol on the way to Tuni is the village of Darmigad and after another kilometer, just before the village of Mandrath, the road climbs up the mountain on the left. The road is fairly decent, with occassional bad patchs, very scenic and beautiful. It takes about 2 hrs to reach the village and another hour to descend back.

It is best to take a day trip to Kathiyan, unless you want to trek to nearby villages, in which case you can try for accomodation in the Public Works Department, Guest House in Kathiyan. It is a small basic 2 room unit. There is a small hotel or "dhaba" in the village where you can get decent food.

Airtel Mobile works in the village, catching signal from an Airtel tower in Himachal Pradesh.
