One can approach Hathipaon by a lovely refreshing walk through the woods amidst silence. The Park Estate at Hathipaon used to be the one-time residence and observatory of Sir George Everest. The colonial bungalow is a must see with the fireplaces and the wooden beams still intact after these many years. Placed between the Himalayas and the Doon valley, the Park Estate promises breathtaking scenery from the top.
The approach roads are very rough for small vehicles to manage, but bigger vehicles can move through the bumpy roads with ease. One can spot the Himalayan wildlife while navigating through this area.
