The Rajaji National Park
5-6 hours drive from Dehradun. Quietly nested in the heart of the Garhwal Himalayas, Kuflon is a postcard village with a population of less than 30 people, set amid pristine terraced valleys, offering a real experience of the untouched country life of Garhwal. A place to get away from civilization and enjoy the grandeur of the snow-capped Himalayas and the warm hospitality of the locals. 'Kuflon Mountain Homestay' (http://indiauntravelled.c...), perched on the edge of the village and run by a friendly couple, offers unexpected indulgence and comforts in the midst of pristine nature.
