Fredy’s Bungalow

Bhimtal, Uttaranchal

Drive for about 7 hours, northeast out of Delhi, and you’ll reach Kathgodam, the railhead for the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand (aka Uttaranchal). A fun, 45-minute drive from there brings you to Bhimtal, built around one of the many tals (lakes) that Kumaon is known for.

Fredy’s Bungalow is in a forest, a short 5-minute drive from the bustle of Bhimtal. You’re definitely cut off from the crowds but the city’s attractions are still close by.


How to get there:

Drive from Delhi or get the train to Kathgodam and then proceed by cab.

By air:
New Delhi offers the best choice of flights and connections from across the country.

By rail:
Kathgodam offers both day and night trains to and from New Delhi.

By bus:
Buses ply the route from New Delhi to Kathgodam, from where you can take a cab to Fredy’s Bungalow.


Distances & travel times:

Delhi: 310 km / 7.5 – 8 hrs

railway station: 
Kathgodam: 20 km / 45 mins

When to go:

March is when the hills start waking up to spring and the pleasant weather continues through to June, which makes it a fun time to visit. Escaping the heat is an added bonus.

October to December is a great time to watch the birds that migrate here for the winter.


Getting around:

You should drive up to Fredy’s as it’s a short 5-minute drive uphill from Bhimtal and public transport isn’t as dependable as it is back in the city. But even if you don’t drive, the management will gladly organise a driver who knows his way around.
