2. Bhimtal

The Bhimtal Lake engulfed in the monsoon mist. Lush forests brimming with colorful birds, butterflies, langurs, monkeys and such wildlife, rice paddies, terraced farms of wheat and potatoes, colorful stone houses, and a pretty English church – Bhimtal has it all, minus the crowds of Nainital. Hike towards Panna Tal, one of the lakes of Sattal, and soak in the beauty of the rains descending upon it from one of Bhimtal’s many vantage points. Better still, walk down and swim in the lake in the rain.
