Water Body Nature / Park
The largest lake in the Kumaon region, Bhimtal Lake features an island in the middle, which boasts an aquarium of local marine life. Created by a dam in the 1880s, this body of water provides clean drinking water to the local population and serves as a recreational hotspot for tourists. Keep your eyes peeled for barking deer and pheasants as you explore the area, and for a little history, look for a 17th-century temple on the banks of the lake.
