Folklore says that the five Pandavas cooked their last meal at Panchachuli (five chulhas or cooking ovens). The awe-inspiring view of Panchachuli from Khaliya top in Munsiyari is an overwhelming experience. Along with this short expedition, the home-stay at Nyoli offers an exciting sneak-peak into the local culture, language, tradition, delicacies and festivals of Kumaon. With temples dating back to 7th and 8th centuries there is much to explore in the mystical land of Kumaon Himalayas - be it Jageshwar(home to the Nagesh Jyotirling), Kainchi Dham where Steve Jobs found his bearings or Chitai where the God of justice Golu Devta resides. With a bit of everything that the Himalayan region represents, Panchachuli is an amalgam of all things Kumaon.
