Transport[edit]

The town is small and there are many lanes here which are narrow, full of encroachment by the shopkeepers, street vendors etc. and usually congested so rickshaw is the only means of transport. Autos also run here. Usually Uttarakhand Roadways and UPSRTC buses connecting Nainital/Kathgodham/Haldwani to Bareilly and other parts of U.P./Uttarakhand ply through Baheri. Earlier, the town used to be a traffic congestion nightmare on Bareilly - Pantnagar - Haldwani - Nainital route. But the construction of Baheri bye-pass road has eased the traffic flow. In Baheri, Tata Ace and Vikram autos also run mostly on bio-diesels and help people to commute to nearby places.

Later in the late nineties, Kathgodam was connected to Rampur under BG via Lalkuan, Haldi Road, Rudrapur city and Bilaspur. Now, the task of conversion of the Lalkuan - Izzatnagar Meter Gauge section to Broad Gauge railway line has been completed and the railway transport has resumed initially with few passenger trains providing increased mobility to the passengers.

Pedology[edit]

Soil present is exclusively mixture of Terai and Alluvial and is moderate brown in colour. The Terai is composed of seasonally marshy zone of clay and sandy soils. The Terai has higher rainfall than plains, and the downward rushing rivers of the Himalaya, slow down in flatter Terai zone, depositing fertile silt in the monsoon season and receding in the dry season. The Terai has a high water table due to groundwater percolating down from the adjacent zone.

Nature and Terai[edit]

Baheri is a part of Teria region of the Himalayas where one can find heavy forested regions. Terai part has lots of grasslands and a variety of wildlife do live in them. There is lot of greenery nearby here and lots of green farms can be seen here. There rivers and field make a perfect picture of the landscape.
