I am planning to go to Kanatal in January end with family. I plan to reach Dehradun by train and from there by taxi to Kanatal. Can someone please tell me weather its safe to travel there in winter. Do roads remain open in mid Jan or are cleaned frequently to keep the traffic going. Or is it better to stay at Mussorie than Kanatal ? (I prefer peaceful location so Kanatal is my choice, as we are not planning any excursions....just want to enjoy snow, walk around a little, see sunrise and sunset and relax). Are there any good economical hotels there. (I don't want to stay at Mahindra resort). Any other inputs about Kanatal are welcome. Please advise!!
