Munsyari is a city in Kumoun region of Uttaranchal.

Get in[edit]

Munsiyari is 300km north of Nainital. It can be reached using hired taxis and buses from Nainital and Almora. There are 3 different routes to reach Munsiyari from Almora.

  • Almora - Bageshwar - Chakouri
  • Almora - Udiyari Bend
  • Almora - Pithoragarh - Udiyari Bend

The second route from Almora to the Udiyari bend and then to Munsiyari is the most scenic, as it runs through part of the Binsar wildlife sanctuary (which it itself is a great holdiay destination).
