Mukteshwar is a pleasing destination situated at an elevation of 2,285 mts 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 as Mukteshwer Dham. The rustic town got its name from the belief that Lord Shiva killed a demon here and gave him salvation (Mukti). It 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 shhot a man-eater tiger here and fell in love with unspoiled natural beauty of this place.
