Welcome to Haldwani!
Haldwani is gateway to Kumaon, a city in Uttarakhand, an important Business Centre, which along with its twin township of Kathgodam forms the Haldwani-Kathgodam municipal board in Nainital District in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.
It is one of the most populous towns in Uttarakhand, and is known as the "Gateway to Kumaon". In Kumaoni, the local dialect, the place is called "Halduvani", after the tree named "Haldu" (Haldina cordifolia), which was found in abundance prior to deforestation for agriculture and settlement.
In 1816, after the British defeated Gorkhas, Gardner was appointed the Commissioner of Kumaon. Later George William Trail took over as Commissioner and renamed Halduvani as Haldwani in 1834. Though British records suggest that the place was established in 1834, as mart for hill people who visited the Bhabhar (Himalayan foothills) region, during the cold season
