Set in the lap of Hathi Parvat (6730 m), the Kagbhusandi Tal lies at an altitude of 5,230m near Kankul Pass.

Two huge rocks on a spur of Hathi Parvat are described as a crow (Kaga) and an Eagle (Garuda). The locals believe that the crow is animatedly conversing with Garuda on the affairs of the universe. Another version has it that a learned Brahmin of Ayodhya once incurred the wrath of the sage Lomas who lived here and was changed into a crow by the sage
