Served by several perennial and seasonal streams, you will be amazed by the sight of crystal clear water gurgling down the rugged terrains. The place is also blessed with a couple of stunning lakes in Saat Tal and Naukuchia Tal. The forest trails of Pangot are massively popular with amateur trekkers from the Northern part of India. With the world-famous Corbett National Park situated just a few kilometers away, this little hamlet off the beaten trails is quite popular with wildlife enthusiasts as well.
