Create an itinerary including Bhimtal Lake
The largest lake in the Kumaon region, Bhimtal Lake features an island in the middle, which boasts an aquarium of local marine life. Created by a dam in the 1880s, this body of water provides clean drinking water to the local population and serves as a recreational hotspot for tourists. Keep your eyes peeled for barking deer and pheasants as you explore the area, and for a little history, look for a 17th-century temple on the banks of the lake. Bhimtal Lake is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • The DEPTTS are charging exorbitantly for a boat ride to the ISLAND CAFE and back. It is just a stones throw virtually. For 04 Adults one has to shell out Rs.900.00 just to reach and enter the Cafe...

  • Bhimtal lake is the jewel of Kumaon region. It is a huge water body. Serene, surrounded by tall green trees, chirping birds and mountains. There is very very less traffic. Historical Bhimeshwar Mahadev temple is a must visit place near the lake. There are restaurants, small tea stalls, maggi points, etc to serve food all day. Boating points are at every corner of the lake, yes it's a large lake so boating is blissful. Aqua activities for couple and kids are also available. There is a gaming zone for kids at one end of lake. In the center of lake there is an aquarium cafe (entry is chargeable, no washroom at cafe), one can if interested in different fishes. Overall Bhimtal lake is a place where entire day could be spent a midst of charming nature, mountains and cool breeze.
  • A famous tourist attraction one of the largest lake in nainital we did boating there with our family and created some beautiful memories to remain with us forever .One of the most beautiful places to visit in Uttarakhand. A peaceful place to spend some quality time with loved ones.
