HOMESTAY IN BHIMTAL ~ essenceofkumaun

KrishnaKunj, Bhimtal, Nainital District, Uttarakhand  

An ideal place for writing a book, painting the ever changing shades of the lake, perfecting your photography skills, lounging around or maybe getting your heart pumping by running around the lake and is very close to Naukuchiatal



This self contained homestay in Bhimtal is part of an ancestral house overlooking the lake, bang in the heart of Bhimtal town. Surrounded by mango, leechi, walnut, guava, and plum trees – the cottage is a favorite haunt of myriad birds. Wake up each morning to spy the red billed Blue Magpie, the purple Sun bird or the Great Barbet as you sip your morning tea. The kids can read books from the library or potter about the land and try their hand at digging out onions.

If you’re okay to venture further, you could sign up for boating at Naukuchiatal Lake, go paragliding and of course, try local cuisines of Uttarakhand.
