Peora is a tiny hamlet nestled amidst the picturesque valley in Kumaon just 10 kms from Mukteshwar in Nainital district of Uttarakhand. The village, with traditional tiled-roof huts sparsely scattered on the slopes of its contoured valleys, is an unexplored hidden gem still untouched by modernity and has a rustic charm to it. You get breathtaking panoramic views of outer Himalayan Shivalik ranges of Kumaon from here. There are many unexplored trails in dense pine forests where you can spot wild flowers and Himalayan birds. The primary income of people here is from fruit cultivation. From plums, peaches, apricots to chestnut, walnut and pomegranate everything grows here.
The nearest railway station is Kathgodam 77 km and the nearest airport is Pantnagar 112 kms away.
