Kanda Area: Kanda is remote, in the district of Bageshwar, in the Kumaoni hill range of Uttaranchal, a hilly province of northern India. Bowl-shaped Kanda valley settlements have an approximate elevation of 1400 meters to 1800 meters. Amidst the terraced lands, the Kumaoni people are nestled at the foot of the astounding Himalayan range, the snow capped peaks of which stand out on any sunny day. The area is a paradise for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts because of the rich biodiversity of flora and fauna, as well as its pristine scenic beauty.
