Things to do

The serene location blessed with nature’s bounty makes for a great place to go on walks up mountain trails or to the terraced fields and quaint villages in the area. The gentle mountain breeze will keep your spirits high as you tread along to the melodious accompaniment of bird song. You could also pack a picnic lunch and eat it as you gaze upon the spectacular views from a hill top. Sattal Lake is just a 20-minute walk away while Naukuchiyatal is much closer.

There is a Butterfly Museum close by if you want to see the fruits of efforts of two generations of lepidopterists who took great pains to preserve their butterfly collection for posterity. Considered the largest in Asia, it features a good number of rare specimens. Bhimtal Lake, the second largest in Kumaon region and sitting at an altitude of 1370 m, offers plenty of recreational opportunities. You can go boating in the calm waters or opt for angling or fishing after obtaining the requisite permissions. This lake is believed to have been visited by the Pandavas during their exile and is named after the warrior Bhima.
