Vijaypur

Vijaypur, a tiny Himalayan village, located between Bageshwar and Chaukori is known to only a few travellers. Situated at an altitude of 6750 feet, this sleepy hamlet rests on a ridge overlooking the magnificent Himalayan range.

On a clear day the place offers one of the most breathtaking views of the entire range from Trishul, Nanda Devi, NandaKot to Panchachuli and Appi peaks. Tea gardens carpet the slopes of Vijaypur while the surrounding ridge is completely covered by rows of Pine, along with Chestnut, Oak Kafal and Rhododendron.

Summers are cool at Vijaypur. The monsoon months turn the entire landscape into green. Autumn brings settled weather and clear skies offering excellent sighting of the Himalayas. In winter it's chilly, and the surrounding ranges are covered in a blanket of snow. The temperature ranges from 0 to 10 degrees.

The rich biodiversity of the region gives way to a vast variety of plants. Besides chestnut there is oak, pine and Rhododendron that are in full bloom in the month of March and render the entire hillside red with their flowers that attract a lot of wildlife especially Langurs and birds.
