A lovely cantonment hill-town in Uttarakhand, Ranikhet is also known as Queen’s Meadow. It is believed to be the resident of Queen Padmini of Kumaon. Revered shrines, a 9-hole golf course, rich orchards, and breathtaking nature in Ranikhet are the reasons why it is one of the best summer tourist places in India. It is considered as one of the most offbeat places to visit in India before you turn 30.
