1. Is it OK to visit Kanatal in July as it is a monsoon season?

2. What is best way to reach Kanatal from Delhi?

Regards

If you want to enjoy rain amidst of hills, Kanatal is okay in July. You can reach Dehradun by train from Delhi and from there to Kanatal by taxi. That would be the economical and quicker option.

Thanks Ashish for your valuable information.

Which route we should prefer during monsoon (means better road condition):

1. Delhi -> Rishikesh -> Kanatal

2. Delhi -> Dehradun -> Kanatal

Delhi>Rishikesh>Kanatal would be better. In that case, stay in Sisam Jhari Ganga Resort at Rishikesh. The other route would be quicker and economical (if you travel by train).

Hi Sam Richard

I have been recently to Kanatal on 28th September.I travelled via Haryana but on return i travelled up to Muzaffarnagar

Your route will be Delhi-Meerut-Muzaffarnagar-Roorkee-Biharigarh-Dehradun-just 3km short of Mussoorrie take right turn for Dhanaulti & Kanatal

Road upto Muzaffarnagar is good as per reports

Muzaffarnagar to Roorkee lot of bad patches in between, few bad patches inbetween biharigarh & dehradun

Delhi to Dehradun will take 8 to 9 hours

Weather will be chilly in night as you will stay in camps

Which route is better in terms of road condition, motion sickness, safety, travel time........Haridwar to Kanatal (~100km).........or Dehradun to Kanatal (~75 km) because I am travelling with my wife and 2 kids (<6 yrs.) and all of us suffer from motion sickness
