First of all, I must thank Sanjay for arranging my stay for three nights at Camp Mehi Cottage with my family and my kitten. The wooden cottage is very cosy and comfortable and has an attached bathroom with all amenities required. Sanjay took personal interest to ensure that our stay is hassale-free. Food at the restaurant was excellent and more than adequate. All the people there like Ganesh, Anil we're very helpful and took care of us for even small things. We had lots of adventure arranged by Sanjay. I wish all the success to his efforts to make adventure tourism popular in Kumaon. Thanks Sanjay.
Birdwatching, or birding, is a form of wildlife observation in which the observation of birds is a recreational activity or citizen science.
The green lush landscape of Nainital makes it a refreshing getaway and an excellent place to experience Jungle Safari.
