About Naukuchia Tal
Yet another lake town, is 26 kms from Two Chimneys and 4 kms further up from Bhimtal at 1220 mts above sea level. Naukuchiya Tal is a beautiful serene, deep, clean lake with nine corners, as the name suggests. It is fed by an underwater spring. Almost a kilometer long and half a kilometer wide, at a depth 40.3 mts, it’s a great place not only to boat, bird watch, fish (make sure you have a license) but also to go for long walks around the lake enclosed by mountains on all sides.
Boats to row, paddle or yacht in are available. Parasailing facilities are available too. Make sure to check the credentials of the companies before embarking on adventure sports!
