Its about 3 hrs/80 Kms from Kathgodam junction... crossing Bheemtal in between. So the people who are little sensitive to motion sickness should carry appropriate medicines.

Don't go there if you are looking for a typical resort with all fancy stuff and satellite tv. Having said that, and having been here in April 2014 (yup this is coming nearly 2 years late) I will go there again. Carry your book if you like reading. Go there for fresh air, away from chaos, spending time with family... More

The rooms made like individual cottages are made of mud and stone, with intimate warm light and wooden bathrooms.

Beautiful and serene atmosphere, well taken care of, homely food amidst jungles and chirping of birds. Will like to visit again . Though rains were beautiful there but approach is little tricky n difficult during rainy season. Trees full of pears, Magpie n other birds.
