Kufri Things to Do

  • Kufri National Park

    I went here during winter. There's a heavy snowfall the day before and I didn't wear proper shoes to climb up the hill, so I need a horse to take me up the park. It cost me Rs250 for one day horse rental which I didn't fully utilize bcos I only hv few hours to spare here. The view is awesome. I don't have much time to explore the park because I...

  • Black bear

    Black bears that live in Himachal Pradesh. They're so cute and kind-hearted ;) Playing in the huge cage all-around, then when I call them, they're coming closer :D But the thing I "hate"; my Punjabi friends also sound 'ahhhhhhhh' [since impressed with their ability to 'entertaining' us] so, I lost several good moments!

Kufri Restaurants

    There are available several hawker stalls at Himalayan Nature Park Kufri. Mostly selling simple meals so people can still walking while enjoy the delicacies. Say like local burger [mostly chicken and veggie, or you can order just veggie in between breads and topping sauce] and chaat masala. It's diced fruits [papaya, cucumber, melon, mango, banana and even cassava!] served with salt and sugar. In my lingo so called "rujak" and in Malayan said as "rojak".

    Well, trekking to the Himalayan Nature Park Kufri, you can find several stalls of delicacies and fresh fruits. Looks so yummy and clean and 'arousing' :)

    What to pay: About Rs 5 - Rs100.

    From the base point of Himalayan Nature Park Kufri, you can explore the highland of Kufri using horse. This horse riding is about Rs150 up and you can visit temple and apple garden, or if you're lucky enough ~ since the weather always covers by mist even in the summer ~ you can have sunset at the Himalayan Mountaineous Range. Trainers or sneakers,...

  • trekking to Mahasu Peak

    Horse riding or trekking ... I love both at Kufri. While to the top, break sometimes to have peach, cherry or plum. Birds are flying in the sky and anywhere 'just' pinewood covers by mist. Truely romantic. Light trekking equipment and mineral water.
