Walking path from village parking area to Fagunia Farmstay

By road

Fagunia Farmstay is about 285 km away from New Delhi. Driving time is about 6 hours from Delhi. The recommended road route is Delhi-Hapur-Moradabad Bypass-Rampur-Bazpur-Choti Haldwani-Mangoli-Bajoon. Please DO NOT follow Google Maps directions for Fagunia Farmstay as they are incorrect. We will send you the detailed last mile route map to our location after booking confirmation. The last 3 km of the route to our village is a scenic but stony and untarred rough forest track (see video and photos below for reference), which can seem scary and adventurous but is motorable and needs to be driven on with caution. SUVs, sedans and hatchbacks are fine on that forest track as long as they have decent ground clearance and are driven slowly and carefully. Vehicles bigger than a typical SUV like Force Travellers or mini-buses cannot be driven on this forest track. We can arrange chargeable local car transfers for the forest track if informed well in advance.
