Each year, tourists are drawn to Almora’s landscape for its Himalayan views, numerous temples, wildlife, cultural heritage, handicrafts, and cuisine. It is also called the cultural capital of Kumaon. It is a charming getaway that cherishes its heritage, with a mixture of colonial-era buildings and traditionally painted wooden shops. The forts, royal courts, and historical landmarks in this area are evidence of this. Several forts constructed by dynasties like the Chands and Katyuris can be found here. Almora is surrounded by forested areas and mountains, and there are a number of interesting places nearby, such as the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is well-known for its leopard, musk deer, Himalayan goral, jungle cat, and chital sightings.
