The Mud Fort of Kuchesar, situated just 75 km east of Delhi in the state of Uttar Pradesh, was built somewhere in the mid 18th century. It is surrounded by a wide moat dug to create ramparts to defend itself against many invaders.
The surrounding areas are very rural with mango orchards and fields of sugar cane. A small distance away are some ghats of the Ganges, ideal for a day picnic. Kuchesar is a perfect place to start or end your journey to/from the foothills of Kumaon and Garhwal.
