It is basically a valley which is surrounded by four hills namely, Chandak, Dhwaj, Kumdar and Thal Kedar, and stretches in the southern flank to Jhulaghat demarcated by the Kali river
I completed 10 major years of schooling from St. Don Bosco High School but wasn’t quite a good student ever. I have no shame in blaming the school authorities for that because they built it at such a pretty location.
Keeping the natural beauty aside, the best thing I like about
Patal Bhuvaneshwar : It is one of the oldest caves in Northern India and is a complex of temples on the inside. It’ is believed to have its relevance in the epic Mahabharata. One attains all the blessings of the “Char-Dham Yatra” by just a single visit of this cave.
Nakuleshwar Temple : This temple has its location at a place about two km. removed from the village Shiling which it self is about four Km away from Pithoragarh. The architectural design of the main temple is splendid and appears to have been modeled on the stylistic pattern of Khajuraho.Arjuneshwar : Ten Km from the west of Pithoragarh town on the top of a hill at a height of 6000 ft. is situated the Shiva temple called Arjune- shwar believed to have been built by Arjuna the great warrior & the supreme archer.
And many many more…..
As far as giving and receiving is concerned, the place has given me many things that are impossible to express in mere words. 1 of them is the ‘lust for thrill’. The reason is very simple. Pithoragarh is an Adventure Sports’ Paradise. One can enjoy rafting and canoeing at areas close to Pithoragarh. Trout fishing can be enjoyed at the rivers in the district.
When people ask me, what’s your inspiration, what keeps you motivated, who is your ultimate guide..??
