The Himalayan Centre - Activities
The Himalayan Centre is located at Village Majkhali near the town of Ranikhet in District Almora,Uttarakhand, India. Situated at an altitude of about 1800 meters in the middle Himalayas the centre overlooks the magnificent peaks of Nanda Ghunti , Trishul, Nanda Devi, NandaKhat etc. The centre is spread over 2 acres of land on the edge of the forest that lie contiguous with the forests of Kalika, Ranikhet and Chaubatia.

These forests and far off villages provide wonderful opportunities for long walks, treks and outdoor camping experience.
