We woke up around 5:30am and around 6:30 we left the camp for birdwatching and trekking to nearby waterfall, the sound of which can be heard at the camp the whole time, the camp supervisor usually starts the day after breakfast around 9:30 am, but we started early to save time as we needed to board train .
It took around 3 hours on a whole.
We reached to the waterfall around 8:30 am, enjoyed the relaxing cold breeze with completely magical water droplets and the silence free from usual city noise .
We came back to camp at around 11am, had our breakfast and then took rest, finally we packed bags to leave as we had already booked a cab to KATHGODAM railway station, we left the camp at 1pm to go back to Sadda dil saddi jaan DILLI (Delhi).

Booked a Cab from Nanital to the camp site at Pangot, that included the local sightseeing.Our main focus was on reaching the camp sight so we didn't spent much time in local sight seeing. Which is in large number, a day is not enough for that, but if you wanna have a different experience than you have to let go the usual routine.
After reaching to our camp sight we took some rest and then went to nearby uphill to witness the mesmerizing sunset. It took around 30-45 min trekking to reach to a perfect spot to witness this amazing view and the real beauty of nature away from mainstream tourist attraction.
