Workcations in Dehradun

Last Updated on February 23, 2022 by Aaron Thompson

Being a full-time writer can sometimes be quite tedious and stressful. So, to take a break from my monotonous work environment, I decided to workcation in Dehradun for a month. Situated on the foothills of the majestic Himalayas, this city has a lot to offer. Therefore, I planned my workcation here and booked a Delhi to Dehradun Taxi to reach my destination.


As soon as I reached Dehradun, the beauty and serenity of this place rejuvenated my mind, body, and soul, and I could not keep my excitement of working in such beautiful surroundings and exploring some top attractions nearby. Also, to give a better overview, here is a rundown of my workcation in Dehradun.


Stay at the beautiful ‘Treehouse in a Forest’


As I did not want to stay in any hotel or hostel, I booked a mesmerizing cottage-style residence named ‘Treehouse in a Forest’. Surrounded by lush green nature, this is a one-bedroom, one-bath treehouse. Yes, an actual treehouse!


Apart from the bedroom and bathroom, this place also features amenities like a fireplace, kitchen, a dedicated workspace, wifi, free parking, and breakfast. The change of vista, delicious cuisine, and scenic environment truly made my workcation more fun, and it surely helped me with my work.


Witnessing the nearby attractions


I usually took a break from my work on weekends, and I witnessed some popular attractions nearby Dehradun during my workcation.


Here are some of the most mesmerizing places I visited on my trip to the city.


  • Dhanaulti


Nestled in the towering Himalayas, Dhanaulti is one of the quaint but beautiful places I visited near Dehradun. With some well-known attractions like Dashavatar and Surkanda Devi Temple, Eco Park, Deogarh Fort, Joranda Falls, and Barehipani, Dhanaulti hosts numerous scenic attractions that truly blew my mind with its stunning beauty.


  • Har Ki Dun


Hai Ki Dun is a stunning hanging valley near Dehradun that is in the shape of a cradle. This place, situated approximately 45 km from the city in a long valley covered with alpine woods, offers a panoramic vista of the spectacular Garhwal Himalayas. The route to this valley was seamless and took me on a majestic ride to Govind National Park, where I saw the snow-capped river valley of Baspa.

  • Chakrata


A remote and tranquil town near Dehradun, Chakrata is perfect for its serene hill retreat. A visit to this hill town was truly a memorable experience as I witnessed mesmerizing snow-capped mountains surrounded by lush greenery.


  • Kalsi


Situated in the middle of Dehradun and Chakrata, on the banks of the magnificent Yamuna river, lies a tranquil village called Kalsi. The quaint town is well-known for its ancestry and tribal communities, including Bhutia, and Mundar, residing here for years.


As I am always keen on learning more about different types of ethnic culture, this place gave me an enlightening experience. Here I got to know about the local folk music, festivities, and tasted delicious cuisine. Also, taking a stroll on the banks of the Yamuna river amidst the velvety verdant mountains of Kalsi was a perfect experience to remember.


Workcationing in Dehradun gave me a new zeal and enthusiasm to work and a positive outlook towards life. So if you are too bored with your everyday work-from-home routine, it is time to book an economical Delhi car rental and get on a workcation trip to Dehradun.
