Taste local Kumaon cuisines -

My favorite is "bhang ki chutney” with Aloo paratha, which I had near Sheraghat on the way towards Chaukori. there are lots to freshly prepared tasty cuisines. You can order local cuisines at Ojaswi Tea resort or can also step out and find a table at local restaurant.

Village walk to experience the local Kumaon life

The locals are very warm and welcoming, Ask for a village walk at Ojaswi Tea resort reception. Its a small walk from the property and a opportunity to have interaction with Himalayan rural life.
