Jeolikot or Jiolikot is an untouched jewel in the Nainital district which is also known as the gateway to Naini Lake. Situated on NH87, Jeolikot is well connected by a motorable road and is located 17kms before Nainital. This is an ideal place for those who are interested in floriculture and butterfly catching. The climate at Jeolikot is pleasant all around the year.
It acts as a pit stop for not only the tourists en route to Nainital, but also for the daily commuters who travel back and forth between Haldwani and Nainital. A glass of tea with ‘bread pakora’ at the ‘Verma Jalpan Grah’ with the picturesque views of the mountains and the blistering sunshine, is the perfect trailer to the beauty which lies ahead (Nainital). In the pre-independence era, it used to be halt point for British to acclimatize before moving to the summer capital Nainital. This place is very fertile for vegetable and fruits. You will find many old British structures in Jeolikote.
