Photographer's Note

This was taken while out train Ranikhet express was entering Kathgodam early in the morning..!! it was before sunrise and the sky was looking just too good..!!

Kathgodam (Hindi: काठगोदाम) is a town in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand state of India. It is part of the twin township of Haldwani-Kathgodam (हल्द्वानी-काठगोदाम), and is immediately north of Haldwani.

Literally meaning timber depot, Kathgodam was a small village in 1901 with a population of 375 , though its importance grew rapidly after the railway line was extended here in late 19th century, after its reach Haldwani in 1884.

Today, it is the last station on its Indian Railways line; from this point, one must travel by automobile to the Kumaon region of the Himalayan Mountains. From Kathgodam, mountain roads lead to tourist destinations like Nainital, Bhimtal, Sattal,Mukteshwar,Ranikhet, Naukuchiyatal and Almora.(wikipedia)

Kathgodam actually takes you into the mountains and as u get down u can see yrself already in the lap of the Himalayas..!!

Enjoy..!!!
