  About Ranikhet Tourism

Travel to a picturesque little hill resort, Ranikhet, which literally means 'The Queen's Field', was named after the wife of a 12 th century ruler, Sudhar Deve.

However, there is no evidence to suggest that the queen ever lived here, and the land remained in the hands of farmers for centuries.

Ranikhet was a forgotten town until the British stumbled upon it, in 1869. For the English, the plains of India, which could fry like a furnace in summer, were excruciating.

Come May, and they needed to make a quick getaway to the mountains. Which is why, in summertime, the capital of British India shifted from Delhi to the more salubrious climes of Simla. The heat and dust of the North is probably what motivated the English to 'discover' Ranikhet as well, and they converted it into military cantonment.

The resort is sprawled across an 1830 metre high rift and is an ideal travel spot for a bit of rest and recreation. It has a balmy climate and its dense cover of pine and oak forests are the lungs of the town. In fact, Lord Mayo, the Viceroy of India, found the town so arresting that he wanted to move the army's Summer Headquarters lock stock and barrel from Simla to Ranikhet. Although the British have long since gone back to their little island nation, the place is still home to the Kumaon Regiment – one of India's best. Many buildings in Ranikhet bear the regimental crest, and most of the vehicles driving along the Upper Mall belong to the regiment.
