Kumaon’s  glacial valleys and mountain peaks have time and again mesmerized trekkers and climbers to scale their heights.  So distinct from the rest of the Himalayas, Kumaon still retains the relics of its pre-British era.  The lake district of the mountains, Nainital’s countryside unfolds a blue-green panorama of shimmering lakes – splashed with brightly coloured yachts, terraced slopes, emerald valleys and velvet downs.

 

Nestling snugly at an altitude on 1938 meters (6358.27 feet) above sea level, Nainital rises up and around its large lake.  The school is located on Ayarpata Hill, 2072.64 meters (6800 feet) above sea level and is at a distance of about 2 kms from Nainital town.

 

The estate adjoining the grounds of Governors House extends over thirty-six acres of forest-land; pasture-land, vegetable gardens and orchards.  The climate is bracing and the temperature variations are small.  The clean environment of this chaste adobe far from the madding crowd ignoble strife is ideal, not only for physical well-being but is exceedingly conducive for academic pursuits with all the advantages of being distanced from the distractions and adverse influences of city-life.

 

The lure of the Himalayas is as old as the first human being to behold their majesty.  For the people of the Indian Sub-continent the Himalayas have always been more than a mere geographical entity.
