Chakrata is a small town which is about 90 km from Dehradun via vikasnagar and kalsi. It is a cantonment town and the commandos of the special forces are trained here. The strange thing I observed there that the people who are serving and being trained as commandos are basically from Tibet. The height of Chakrata is 2118 meters from sea level. The place is very peaceful and is not crowded with tourists. Chakrata is one of the most picturesque places. It is unspoiled, serene, cool and calm. It is in Dehradun district and can be reached via Yamunanagar-Paonta Sahib.
