We stopped in Bageshwar to collect the rest of our stuff from the KMVN tourist bungalow and in the evening when we were looking round the local temple we ran into Sanjay and Sunil from the trek.

Back on dry land we took another walk down the mall and sat in The Embassy restaurant for lunch and a spot of people watching. In the afternoon after a bit of blog updating we decided to checkout the Snow View lookout point which sits above Nainital at 2270m.
