When we woke up the next morning, it was coming down hard and tit was really chilly outside. So decided to freshen up and have breakfast while the weather clears out. We, again, had hot aalo paranthas with coffee in our hotel, which really felt tastier than ever before. By the time we were done packing our bags and completing check out formalities, rain had stopped. We decided to walk down to Khurpatal, another quaint village around 6 km from our hotel.
So the day has come. We said goodbyes to hosts and other volunteers. Started for munsiyari. Again travelled back to Almora than to munsiyari.We had to stop mid way at a place called khurpatal as it was getting dark and no vehicles drive at nightThat village was a happening places. The cab driver himself had talk to hotel owner and got us a 2bedroom stay. People were so polite and helpful. I had fever, went to local clinicThe doctor gave me medications i asked for. Instead he was concerned enough to give me extra meds. Not only thisBut the hotel owner convinced a cab driver to take us to thal. From where we were to go to munsiyari.That was an great evening at some random beautiful village.
Khurpatal is at an altitude of 5500 ft (1635 MT), and a distance of 12 km from Nainital. Khurpatal seems a secret haven hidden in the hills, that is why it is still echoing with the sounds of nature and not the machine age man and his boisterousness. If you love serenity, then Khurpatal is just the place for you. The place is ideal for a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you love peace and solitariness, come and enjoy the beauty of Khurpatal. The place is unexplored by the tourists and modern construction. If you are interested in angling or fishing, this is the right place to go on vacation.
It is literally known as Trowel Lake, an attractive lake which is about 5 kilometers from Nainital. It is situated at an altitude of 1,635 m (5,364 ft). It is popular with anglers and is surrounded by terraced fields or farms from which it presumably gets its name.
