Climbing : The challenge of a good climb is hard to resist. The satisfaction of conquering sheer rock faces and dizzying heights is hard to beat. At Lake Resort, you will really love to climb - and we will make you do it in the best possible way. The right equipment, the right technique and the right attitude are all vital ingredients in the perfect climb. So strap up that harness - it's time to get the view from the top.

Cycling : The simple, pure thrill of riding a bicycle is something many of us forget when we grow out of childhood. Well, guess what? At Lake Resort , we'll help you rediscover it. We cycle through rough and smooth, warm and wet, road or path - to some of the prettiest places you can find. What's more, we're proud to use transportation that doesn't leave fumes. Hop on a bike (your own or one of ours) and get with us - there's nothing quite like some serious pedal power.

Hiking : There's one trait we at Lake Resort share - a love of walking. We simply love to put one foot in front of the other and just keep going - into jungles, over mountains, along streams. If you like a long walk, we've got a wide variety of local trails. Day hike for beginners, overnight hikes for adventure loving and more enthusiastic people. So strap on your backpack and put on your boots. It's time for some adventure and local sight seeing...

Mountains : It's true. Camping at 2304 feet in the mighty Himalayas does tend to get your mind off work. When it comes to panoramic views, exotic locales and memorable treks up mountains, we at Lake Resort sure do have a whole lot of stories to tell.

Be it a weekend trip in the Uttaranchal hills or a fortnight trip to the remotest Himalayas – We at Lake Resort always manage to find ourselves in the heart of the action: slipping, sliding, fighting thorns and gasping at breathtaking views.

Trekking in Uttranchal : The state of Uttaranchal comprises of three distinct zones, the Terai is the flat land or known as the ‘Plains' with teak/ Sal forests and the home to the Tiger and Elephant. Not much trekking is done in this region due to the extreme heat and as well as due to extensive cultivation. We run a few treks in this region only during the winter months, some really well forested and vehicle free areas still exist.

The region of the outer Himalayas, comprise of low hills and vast expansive valleys, pine forests, rivers teaming with fish, hilltops with breathtaking views, ancient traditions and customs and off course the towns and villages. Some really admirable treks and excursions can be planned in this area. The life of the simple hill men can be seen and their festivals enjoyed in the numerous treks we run, also worth mentioning are the ancient temples that abound here. The forests are usually oak and pine and the wild life is abundant in some of our treks, the Kakar or the Barking Deer, Leopards or Bagh, wild Boars, Pheasants, Pine Martins and more than 80 species of bird are resident out here.

Our most serious trekking is done in the Himalayas as we call it, this is the area adjacent to the mighty Himalayan Mountains like the Nanda Devi, Trisul, Panchachuli, Shivling, Bhaghirathi and many more. These treks are referred to as High Altitude treks, and the highest we reach is around 5000 metres above sea level. We run quite a few treks in the region, visiting glaciers, high passes, sacred lakes, beautiful alpine meadows and some of the villages. Meeting the mountain men out to collect herbs and medicines in the meadows, the shepherd with his vast flocks and as many worries, the hunter on a lookout for something that moves or the elusive people from the Darma region is an experience not readily forgotten. The views are amazing and mountains are majestic but that is not all there is; the Snow Leopard, Ibex, Bharal, Thar, Musk Deer, Monal Pheasant, Snow cock, Hare mouse, Lammagier, Himalayan Griffen vulture and other birds of prey make up the fauna of this region and a sight of any of these is an experience.
