The Haldu trees were found in abundance prior to deforestation for agriculture and settlement. The place was regionally known as Halduvani until George William Trail took over as Commissioner of Kumaon and renamed it to Haldwani in 1834.Located in the Bhabhar region in the Himalayan foothills on the banks of the Gaula River, The town of Haldwani was established in 1834, as a mart for hill people who visited Bhabar during the cold season.
