Mukteshwar is one of the most spectacular travel spots in Uttarakhand and is popular as a major hill station in the Nainital District. Sitting at an altitude of 2286 meters, Mukteshwar is located in the Kumaon hills and is around 51 kilometers away from Nainital. Even though Mukteshwar is a popular travel destination in north India, it is also a favorite religious pilgrimage destination and this is quite evident by the presence of the Shiva Temple or Mukteshwar Dham which is one of the major attractions of this place. This place even got its name derived from this famous temple. The Mukteshwar Dham is situated on the top of the mountain and from the mountain top you will be able to view an amazing sight of the Himalayan Range whose beauty cannot be explained in words.
