Sightseeing and Things to do in Abbott Mount

Last Updated: 10 Sep 2009 1 Contributors

Take in a lungful of pristine mountain air and explore the hill station on foot. Like any other good hill station, the charm of Abbott Mount lies in taking long walks and appreciating the beauty around. Day treks in and around Abbott Mount are ideal for bird watchers, since the hill has a huge variety of Himalayan birds. A picturesque church set amidst the forest and an old cricket pitch with an unsurpassed view of the mountains is worth visiting here. In summers the gardens come alive with the gossamer hues of large variety of butterflies.

For the meditative souls a visit to the Mayawati Ashram, the headquarters of Adwait Ashram is a must. The ashram was sanctified by Swami Vivekananda. One can also visit the adjoining towns Champawat and Lohaghat. The bazaar at Lohaghat is quite popular for local handicrafts.
