Syalsaur, this small hamlet situated in the state of Uttarakhand, doesn't feature on many travel blogs, but lies in a beautiful silence on the banks of the Mandakini River.
Syalsaur is for the traveler who like to stop and ponder. Who wants to slowly soak in the beauty of the place he/she is in. Syalsaur's adventure lies in its flowing river, its chirping birds, its majestic snow-capped peaks. The adrenaline is replaced by the tranquility of the place. The sunrise at Chaukhamba peak is one of the highlights of this place. It is also a home to many migratory birds, so if you are an avid bird watcher, this could be perfect. People usually halt at Syalsaur on their way to some Pilgrimage spot like Haridwar or Badrinath etc.
