Choosing travel to escape time is passé! Instead, have you ever experienced a trip to a hamlet where time freezes, your mind comes to a standstill, but your heart can’t help but dance with delight, and your eyes stare over the pristine beauty and purity? If not, welcome to Kathgodam!

Kathgodam is a picturesque and quaint village in the Kumaon region of Nainital, Uttarakhand. This village is also called the “Gateway of Kumaon Village”, but the word “Kathgodam” actually means “Timber Depot”, making it the trade and commerce hub in the Himalayas. 

Apart from scenic spots from a fairy tale, Kathgodam is home to a variety of tourist locations, thrilling activities and spiritual abodes. Therefore, if you are visiting Kathgodam to tick some adventure off your bucket list, you can go kayaking, paragliding, boating, etc. Since Kathgodam is close to the Himalayas, this dainty village also offers exhilarating treks. Some famous ones are Roopkund Trekking, Trekking in Pangot, Om Parvat Trek, etc. Due to a favorable and pleasant climate all year round, families and tourists prefer sightseeing and picnicking near Kathgodam in Nainital, Auli, Bhimtal and Binsar. To pacify your soul, you can also seek blessings at the famous temples here, which are, Kali Chaur, Shitla Devi Temple and Shani Mandir.
