Abbott Mount Cottage
Abbott Mount Cottage is located near Indo-Nepal border in the state of Uttarakhand, 165km away from Kathgodam railway station & 9km from Lohaghat. This colonial style lodge offers four rooms. The lodge is well furnished with en suite western style toilets, a kitchen where one can avail the services of our cook. The place is excellent for birding, Himalayan views and nature treks. This also serves as a base for anglers who wish to fish Mahseer at Pancheshwar, a confluence of Saryu and Mahakali rivers.
This historic hamlet of Abbott Mount is situated at an altitude of about 6500 ft above sea level in the eastern part of the Kumaon Hills near the small town of Lohaghat in Champavat District. Abbott Mount was founded by and named after Mr. John Harold Abbott. An English businessman who wanted to start a hill station for the European community at the turn of the 20th century. Unlike many Indian hill stations Abbott Mount has changed little since its inception. There are only thirteen secluded cottages spread over this private hill. There is a picturesque church set amidst the forest and an old cricket pitch with an unsurpassed view of the mountains.
