Kumoan Region
Pithorgarh

Pithoragarh district borders Tibet in the north and Nepal in the east. Due to this strategic location, the outer limits, due north and east, require permits to explore. Pithoragarh
The pilgrim route to Kailash-Mansarovar (a mountain and lake highly revered by the Hindus), traverses through this region.

Pithoragarh has many temples and ruined forts to testify to its erstwhile position as a stronghold of the Chand rulers. The headquarters of the district is located in an open valley of immense charm.

The Rai Gufa (cave) provides an excellent example of queer Limestone deposits. Worth visiting is the local market place. The temple dedicated to Ulka Devi, an aspect of Shakti, has a hill top location (outside the town). Adjacent stands an obelisk in memory.
