At a distance of 20 km from Mukteshwar, 30 km from Almora, and 59 km from Nainital, Peora is a tiny hamlet located in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand. Cradled in the lap of Himalayas, it is one of the offbeat places to visit in Uttarakhand and among the must include places in Nainital Tour Packages.

Perched at an elevation of 6600 feet, Peora is a small Kumauni hamlet with traditional tiled-roof village huts sparsely scattered on the slopes of its contoured valleys, surrounded by dense pine forests. If you are looking for a tourist place away from the touristy crowd of Nainital, then Peora is the perfect place to enjoy solitude bliss and quietude. The lush green surroundings tend to have an enriching impact on the visitors along with the picture-perfect views of the outer Himalayas draped in snow which is a treat to the eyes.

Untouched by the hands of modernity, this hidden gem is bountiful in scenic beauty and picturesque views that make it a perfect getaway. From the colors of the Blue Magpie to countryside village walks through dense pine forests, the fascinating night sky with myriad stars and lights of the Almora town across the valley, the place attracts nature enthusiasts, bird lovers & photographers. Also, many British Era bungalows in the hamlet give it a rustic vibe.
