Close to Chakarata is a lovely and relaxing tourist pot known as Koti Kanasar. 105 kilometres away from Dehradun, Koti Kanasar is a small village that is home to dense rainforests. The Forest Rest House (FRH) is the oldest known place of accommodation amongst tourists. Though there are no traces of snow, Koti Kanasar's proximity to Mundali is making it popular amongst tourists as a ski getaway for the winter holidays. The village is rimmed by an apple valley and so naturally, the main occupation of the villagers is apple gardening. Koti Kanasar is well connected by road transportation and telecommunication even though it is located in a hilly region, approximately 2,134 metres above sea level. A private taxi from the Jolly Grant Airport at Dehradun or from the railway station makes good sense. There are direct buses from Delhi and Gurgaon to these destinations. People travelling by road prefer the Tuini - Chakarata road for going towards Koti Kanasar from Dehradun. Other interesting places close to Kanasar and Chakarata are the Tiger Falls, just 15-20 minutes away, the Koti Power House and Balani Devi Mandir which are a slight distance away from Kanasar at Dehradun. Tourists can also visit the Ram Tal Garden, 9 kilometres away from Kanasar, located on the route of Chakarata to Mussoorie.
