Kanatal is named after a lake that once existed there. Once an abandoned land, today Kanatal is a typical hangout for those tourists who look for harmony and isolation. Aside from harmony, the spot displays an allure in the form of magnificent hills, fruit trees, apple plantations and dense forest.

This curious village sprinkled with plenty of wild blooms and small temples lies in the closeness to other hill stations of the state like Dehradun, Chamba and Mussoorie. Elevated about 8500ft over the ocean level, the salubrious climate and the immaculate excellence of this spot is very much connected through well-maintained roads, unlike the others.
