Traditional Drinking water Sources and natural  lakes

The human settlements in different remote regions of Pithoragarh were principally based  upon the factor of the easy availability  of  pure  drinking water and  it is a notable feature   of  all upland habitations that  the under ground water reservoirs capable  of  supplying  drinking  water  perennially either  in the  forms of guided springs called dharas  or covered storages called Naulas, have been a  primary source  of  water supply.  Some of the underground reservoirs  are so enormous that they emerge as rivers in lesser Himalaya and are continuously replenished either by the snow
melts or by the rain water.

There are a number of such spout springs (dharas) and covered storages (Naulas) which over a long period have gathered legends around them due either to their topography,  architecture or   location special, so much so that they have now become chosen picnic spots  e.g.,  to  the north  of   Dharchula is situated a hot water spring at the bank of  Kali  in a place called Tapowan and another in Madkot.

             Perhaps heights and lakes  do not make a very probable combination but be  lying the normal belief,  Pithoragarh possesses wonders  of  natural  lakes  in the form of  Jollingkong and Ancherital at an elevation of 4634 and 3658 meters respectively.

Flora and Fauna

Although one does not find an abundance of  flora and fauna  in Pithoragarh but  these are remarkable for their sheer variety.  The biological diversity is very important in many aspects.

Bugyal :  Passing along the route of Chhota Kailash, a  lover of  adventure  moves into the enchanting  world surrounded by  the lush stretches of  velvetty grass bugyals (alpine meadows) such as Chhiplakot and Vyans Valley.

Since the district possesses a great range of elevation there is a remarkable diversity  in  its  natural vegetation. In addition climatic variations, particularly in temperature and precipitation associated  with   the alignment and altitudes of ranges and nature  of  valleys, determine the altitudinal growth and variety of vegetation. The  northern hilly zone  is covered with dense forests, particularly on northern slopes, with the diverse flora upto an elevation of about 14,000 ft.

कामाक्ष्या मन्दिर, पिथौरागढ से 5 किमी. दूरी पर कासनी नामक गांव के ऊपर एक चोटी पर स्थित है. यहां से चारों और बिखरे सुन्दर नजारों का विहंगम दृश्य दिखता है..
