At Kathgodam, continue straight along NH-87 to Jeolikot via Ranibagh, on the way to Nainital. Once you turn left from Rampur for the last 1.5 hrs along the forested NH-87 via Rudrapur, you’ll be accompanied by golden sun-flower fields, mango groves sighing and hundreds of monkeys.
The 9 p.m. deluxe bus from Delhi’s ISBT Anand Vihar to Nainital stops at Jeolikot.
After the Moradabad by-pass fly-over, take the largely forested road to Bazpur, which will take you to Haldwani via Kaladungi. From Haldwani (a large town which has joined up with Kathgodam), take the Nainital route to reach Jeolikot. Most Delhi motorists prefer this route.
