Situated along the banks of river Lohawati in Uttarakhand, Lohaghat is one of the most scenic destinations in the state. Filled with pine and oak forests, the hill station offers natural beauty in abundance.
The hill station of Lohaghat does not awestruck with its scenic attractions, but it has tales of history and mythology to narrate to its visitors. Owing to this, the hill station’s claim to fame has been its fascinating temples, Ashrams and historic structures. Justifying the iconic image of Lohaghat are its popular tourist attractions, which include Advait Ashram, Mayawati Ashram, Mount Abbot, Banasur Fort and Pancheshwar.
As Lohaghat resides on the banks of Lohawati river, tourists can also visit the temple of Rikeshwar Mahadev, which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. This sacred temple is located just outside the town, on the banks of the pristine Himalayan river. Besides sightseeing, Lohaghat is also suitable for trekking to the further high altitudes of Uttarakhand.
