Here is an interesting gem located right on the mall-road in Nainital. If you're like me, and need to escape the whoosh-beepbeep-BONK of tourist trap Nainital, get some peace and quiet, relax yet again... this is where you should head to.

Ramgarh- A Travelogue Overdue-01072008008.jpg

The church is located at one end of the mall, right next to Naini lake.
(sorry for the grainy picture. Nokia.)

Ramgarh looks very serene indeed! Loved the hotel. Very nice pictures too. I particularly liked those of the hotel and the one with the Innova approaching with headlights on. And the black and white picture was classy.

The samosa looks yummy for sure! And it would be heavenly to have it hot on a cold, rainy day!

As far as I know, the shooting of the film Sholay happened near Ramnagar on Bangalore - Mysore road.

It's godog.
I don't know for sure, but I do have an inkling. There probably is, but even if theres none, I'm sure of plenty of superb B&Bs 10 yards out from the church.
Please click some pics at Bhimtal and post 'em here, I wanted to go but ran out of time. Also, have you heard of Sat-tal?

Thank you.
Thank you. That one was snapped by my friend.
Thank you. This was me. I'm not a very camera friendly person, I like to make memories to keep them in my head, but this place was different.
And oh yes. Either the samosa was different, or the air was just oh-so-crisp, maybe both.

Thankyou akbaree. But that is the whole story. We drove back with a short stop at Naini-Lake. Time we could have spent better elsewhere. and "dhaba-central" aka Gajraula. That was nothing to write about, except there isn't any traffic after dark on the way back, and we nearly flew back. We shouldn't have. :(

Did the Ramgarh routine again. The place is a shambles. Godog advises against visiting The Ramgarh Bungalows. The staff's smiles are gone. Here's what you get in its place:

Instead, heres another place to try out in Ramgarh:

Thought I'd share a quick review with you:

The Food
Oh GOD! The food I was made to endure! Horrible! Even thinking of it makes me go YUCK! The only savior was the Dessert, which was consistently good; although we once had to make do with half a slice of apple pie per person.

The Service
Forget a smile, I was hard pressed to escape from the frowns. See this pic to see what I'm on about.

The Stay
4 days seemed like eternity, and I was only too happy to leave. But even the check-out left a bitter after-taste.

Firewood
While checking out, I was suddenly presented with a thousand rupee bill for "firewood". Since I had been doing almost everything myself (cooking maggi-noodles for my newly wedded wife, arranging for medicines, keeping us warm), I would've got myself some wood (and much better than what I was provided with), for a tenth of the cost!

First Aid
No thermometers. And if you want a painkiller, please travel 3 KMs up the hill to the nearest chemists' shop. God forbid if something more serious than a fever should seize you...
