The caves at Nainital, Eco Cave Park – Kausani Diaries

Do you know about the caves at Nainital?

Hello to all my lovely readers! Today, I am going to write the last post of our Kausani getaway. And as I mentioned in my Part-2 post, I will be telling how we discovered the caves at Nainital. Also, what all we did on our way back from Kausani.

Kausani is a hill station and village situated in Bageshwar district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is famous for its scenic splendour and its spectacular 300 km-wide panoramic view of Himalayan peaks. –Wikipedia 

In my previous post, I had shared some of the exciting things one can do in Kausani with lots of pictures of our splendid time there. After spending two memorable days in Kausani, it was time to bid adieu to this heaven. 

We decided to take the route from Bhimtal and Nainital so that we could have a view of these beautiful places as well.

Weekend Trip to Kausani (Part – 3)

On our way to Nainital, we found some picturesque locations while crossing through Almora. We made pitstops to bask in the beauty of the surroundings and take some pictures to add to our memory box.

It was a beautiful morning not too hot in the month of May, just perfect. The highway road was smooth and made for the perfect long drive.

It was not just my husband and me, who were having all the fun, our little man was as exhilarated as we were. For a 2-year-old, it was all mesmerizing and perfect.

Just when we were about to reach Bhimtal, we saw a billboard that had an advertisement about paragliding, organized by Sky Track Paragliding. We thought of adding a pinch of adventure to our leisure trip.

However, upon reaching there we find out that they had halted their activities due to the strong winds around that time. Moreover, they were not sure when the activity would resume.

So we dropped the idea of paragliding and started on with our journey without wasting much time there.

Just a couple of kilometers ahead, we saw the Bhimtal viewpoint area. It was well maintained, had tables & chairs to sit, relax, and enjoy the Himalayan view.

On the opposite side of the road, there were a couple of tea stalls. We ordered Maggi and tea for us and spent some 30 mins there before resuming our further journey.

Finally, we reached Nainital at around 1 pm. Although it was a Monday, the mall road was jam-packed with people and vehicles. It was too noisy with the chatter babble of the uncountable number of tourists swarming the only famous road.

The whole scenario was a setback for us. We were coming from a place that was filled with nature’s magical flora and fauna. And here, nature was all hidden behind commercialization.

The temperatures were soaring high, we were in no mood to even get out of the car. But our driver wanted to have lunch before moving on with the drive.

So, we decided to take a stroll on the road towards Bazpur to breathe in some fresh air.

About 1 km ahead of the mall road, we saw a small entrance on the left side of the road alongside a ticket counter. There was a curved board above the entrance which read ‘Eco Cave Park‘. We thought it to be a small garden and decided to take a walk inside.

As soon as we stepped inside, we realized it was not any normal garden park. In fact, it was a house full of adventure. Exactly what we were looking for. The caves at Nainital!

Way to Cave

There were 6 natural caves named after the animals on the basis of resemblance to their natural habitat. These were tiger cave, panther cave, porcupine cave, bat cave, ape cave, flying fox cave, all with different dimensions.

One has to bend down and crawl to pass through the narrow passage of the caves. It was a full-on adrenaline rush activity for us.
