Kumaon

Kumaon as is known today derived its name from "Kurmanchal", meaning land of the Kurmavatar (the tortoise incarnation of Lord Vishnu). It is a very popular site with tourists visiting India as it is surrounded by Tibet in the north and Nepal on the east. It happens to include the districts of Almora, Bageshwar, Champawat, Nainital, Pithoragarh, and Udham Singh Nagar. This area is especially famous for its cultural heritage, handicrafts, cuisine and wildlife.

Except for the town of Kumaon, the rest of it is a maze of mountains which are a part of the Himalayan range. It has over thirty peaks rising to elevations upto 5500 m, which is responsible for attracting the great number of tourists who visit it.
