Pangot, a beautiful hamlet in the Kumaon hills, surrounded by thick forests. It offers bird watchers and nature lovers a truly rewarding experience. Pangot is just 15 km away from Nainital.
The peace and solitude one experiences in this clean and fresh place is unmatched. Pangot is a small village with everything small, from the small village houses, typical of the Kumaon region, small tea-stalls, a small village temple, a small post-office and the small population of around hundred people.
When visiting Pangot, don't forget to carry good binoculars and a well illustrated bird book as some rare birds like the grey woodpecker and black-chinned babbler are found in the forests.
