From the guards at the hive entry to the nurses tending the little, to the “energetic females” and “lazy males,” to the glaring elusive queen, each bee has a place inside this complex community. Not to mention that you will be tasting the freshest honey from the hive.

7) Traditional Folklore and Trek – Listen to the traditional folklore of Karkotak, a snake. Also, hike to the hilltop to the Karkotaka temple listening to some amazing folklores. Not to mention that view of Bhimtal is just spectacular from Karkotak peak.
