Where to Stay.....

The best accommodation in Chakrata are the Forest Guest Houses, located all over Chakrata.
See Forest Deptt Website for more information. Room rates are around Rs 500/- per day. For reservations and more details one should talk to the District Forest Officer, Chakrata in Kalsi at 01360-275078.

The usual procedure is to send an application by fax at the same number or by post to:
DFO Chakrata,
Forest Department,
Kalsi Gate,
Kalsi,
Uttaranchal.
The application is then put up to the DFO for his approval and you should call back after a few days to confirm.


Three middle range hotels in Chakrata, Hotel Snow View, Hotel Himalayan Paradise and a third one is in Chakrata City Bazaar, whose name unfortunately I cannot recollect, also provide accommodation in Chakrata town.
Of these, Hotel Snow View comes out the best among the lot. (See next section) This is the hotel where we finally stayed as the Forest Rest Houses were undergoing renovations and were closed.
Hotel Himalayan Paradise also looked decent from outside. It is however located at a much lower altitude than Snow View, on the Lakhamandal Road, so I suppose the view would not be so great plus it would be a little warmer and is about 5 kms away from the town.
The third hotel was bang in the middle of Chakrata Bazaar, so it did not seem appealing.

Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam has two guest houses about 100kms away from Chakrata City,in Hanol and Arakot.
