An attractive spot amidst dense forests, Nachiketa Taal is situated between Panchangaon and Fold Gaon. Situated at an altitude of 1,219 m is this 9 cornered lake and hence it's name `Naukuchia Tal'. It is 26 km from Nainital and attracts migratory birds. Both Yachts and paddle boats are available and this is a favourite spot for anglers. This is an area famous for its orchards, and the fact that it was here that Rabindranath Tagore completed his collection of poems, Gitanjali, which won him the noble prize.

Nachiketa, the devout son of saint Uddalak, is said to have created this lake and hence, the name. There is no accommodation facility and visitors have either to come back to Uttarkashi or stay at the PWD Inspection House at Chaurangi-Khal.
