historic hamlet of Abbott Mount is situated at an altitude of about 6500
ft above sea level in the eastern part of the Kumaon Hills near the
small town of Lohaghat in Champavat District. Abbott Mount was founded
by and named after Mr. John Harold Abbott. An English businessman who
wanted to start a hill station for the European community at the turn of
the 20th century. Unlike many Indian hill stations Abbott Mount has
changed little since its inception. There are only thirteen secluded
cottages spread over this private hill. There is a picturesque church
set amidst the forest and an old cricket pitch with an unsurpassed view
of the mountains.
