Things to see and do

Driving tours, golfing at one of India's oldest 18- hole golf course (Government House-Nainital), sailing at Naini Lake, snow peak spotting from Kilbury, bird watching at Pangot, Binsar and Naukuchiatal, boat rides at Saattal and treks and hikes in the Kumaoni Himalayas are just some of the exciting must dos in store. 

You could trek down to the tiny river below the cottage for an impromptu picnic, while the beer chills in the swiftly running water. Collect pebbles, soak your feet in its refreshing coolness…ah bliss. On the way stop by, first at the tiny shrine under a canopy of trees; jump over the gate and pay your respects. Further on, the colonial house you see, is now a govt horticulture outlet for fresh honey and saplings. Remember to take your binoculars and a bird and butterfly guide book. The Cottage can arrange for a local guide who'll take you to Jeolikot's nooks and crannies. 

Tiny Jeolikot has some interesting buys hidden in its folds. Walk down the paved road to the tiny river below the cottage and you'll pass the govt apiary and horticulture dept, where you can buy fresh kiwi fruit, mushrooms, olives and strawberries. Also pick up some fresh wild flower honey. 

Right opposite the Cottage, a few shops sell saplings and tiny potted plants. Kumaon's famous geraniums in many colours are tempting.
