Mukteshwar is a pleasing destination situated at an elevation of 2,285 meters above sea level located around 50 km from Nainital in Uttarakhand. Mukteshwar got its name from a 350-year-old temple of Lord Shiva called Mukteshwer Dham. The rustic town got its name from the belief that Lord Shiva killed a demon here and gave him salvation (Mukti).

Mukteshwar is famous for the picturesque orchards, coniferous forests, rolling meadows, and little cottages and homes built in quaint colonial style. The top of the mountain on which Mukteshwar Temple stands offers astonishing and marvelous views of the imposing Himalayan range.

The pristine beauty of Mukteshwar has a lot to offer. Wake up with the chirping of birds and rays of morning sunlight brushing the cliffs. Enjoy a short trek in the woods. Jim Corbett, the famed British hunter, and a nature lover came to shot a man-eater tiger here and fell in love with the unspoiled natural beauty of this place.
