Munsiyari is perched at an altitude of 7,240 ft above sea level. Munsiyari tourism, famous for a perfect place for trekking lovers. Munsiyari is magic that fills one’s heart with pure oxygen, one’s eyes with the wonder of nature, one of the scenic village of UK, India is famous for Panchachuli, a group of 5 peaks & thousands of nature lovers visit here for the attraction of intimate views as if you can touch them if you extend your hands.
1. Birthi Fall:
It is situated 35 kilometres from Munsiyari. It’s one amongst the gorgeous nature’s gifts surrounded by tall green Hills and seen from the miles away. To reach near the fall a few minutes trekking is required from the road. If anyone can arrange one/two hours from his schedule either visiting Munsiyari or returning from Munsiyari he should go near the falls to induce the charm of it and would be lucky enough, to see the rainbow. If you are in a hurry you just stop on the road near the falls for a while and watch the fall which is one amongst the simplest attractions of Munsiyari. There is a rest house of KMVN (Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam) if you desire you will spend an evening there and enjoy Bonfire in the dark to be arranged by the Caretaker. They will also arrange breakfast. Lunch, dinner, etc. if you would like. Cooking is good but not sort of a five-star Hotel. You may enjoy the sound of the falls throughout the night from your room until you last to deep sleep and fully moon night you will watch the falls through the rear side window of your room looking like silver. I suggest arranging a full phase of the moon on your trip, spending that specific night at KMVN, Birthi with Bonfire, which will last in your heart and mind forever.
2. Panchachuli Peaks:
The peaks have the altitudes ranging from 6,334 meters (20,781 ft) to 6,904 meters (22,651 ft). On clear days a sunset along the Panchachuli is an awesome experience. It is bordered by Tibet ( China) on the north & Nepal on the east, charms with a breathtaking view of some of the world’s most magnificent summits like Nanda Devi, 2nd highest in India, Nature here beautifies herself with lush greenery, dense forests of pine, medicinal plants & rhododendron.

3. Maheshwari Kund:
It is a beautiful place with a very fascinating legend attached to it. Maheshwari Kund is just a few kilometres walk from Munsiyari. The uphill trek will take around 45 minutes to reach the Kund.
4. Khaliya Top:
This place offers wonderful views all around especially the snow-clad mountains ahead. Khaliya top trek is easy, and one can also witness the snowline from here during the summer season, as well. International tourists carry their tents to camp. People love it because watching the sunrise from the Khaliya top would be altogether a different experience. One can as well see the sunrise from the town itself, but due to the height of the Khaliya top, the view during sunrise best. Since it is at a hill, the view of Panchachuli peaks becomes even more mesmerizing.
5. Kalamuni Top:
It is located 15 km from Munsiyari on the way from Birthi. Kalamuni Top is 9500 feet tall. There is a popular Kali Temple here that is frequented by pilgrims and devotees. This is one of the best places to visit, because of the gorgeous pine forestland surrounding it and the stunning views of the Panchachuli Peak.
The temple has a spiritual atmosphere that free all the bad energy and negative vibes. The outer wall of the temple displays interesting blooms of Kali Mata and the Naga Sadhus can also be seen meditating here.
