Pangot, a picturesque village at 6,300 feet above sea level set in amidst a thickest Oak & Rhododendron Forest only 15 km from Nainital famous for its jungles & birds. It approximately took 30 mins to reach Pangot from Nainital. The entire drive is through the lush green China Peak Range via Snow Views Point & Kilburry the main habitats for excellent birding.

Day 1

Pangot Camp Mehi is like stepping into a remote Himalayan village but it was not too far  from city.
We were group of 11 people reached there in afternoon & after that we all got freshen up & had lunch.
Then we all went for birds watching & rappelling. Moving down from a cliff on a rope from top to bottom even after securing yourself to the best possible way is always a fun. We all enjoyed a lot. One can see numerous perennial & seasonal creeks which are home to an amazing variety of flora & fauna. Almost 150 bird species have been recorded at Pangot & surrounding areas. It was a delight to watch lammergeyer, Himalayan griffon, blue-winged minla, spotted & slaty-backed forktail, Rufus-bellied woodpecker, rufous-bellied
niltava, khalij pheasant, variety of thrushes etc. including leopards, yellow-throated Himalayan martens, Himalayan palm civets, ghorals, barking deerand sambhar.
In the evening we were back to our camp. Evening snacks & bonfire was arranged by the camp. It was first ever camping for most of us. We were excited as we all reunited after years. It was one of the unforgettable night outs under the stars for all us. We all shared old school memories, had dinner, drinks, dance, gossips, played games, revelling secrets, few of them have nothing to say & few of them dwell in their own thoughts. As it was very late then we came back to our camp & slept. After a few minutes rain started & few of us went out to enjoy the rain & like that night went on & on.

Next morning after breakfast we all went for  amazing activities at Camp Mehi & had fun exploring the various facets of rope adventures.
