Eat and drink in town as much as you can. Some great tea shops in the 'centre' of town (ie the three all next door to each other) over the bridge. My personal favorite is the one on the right. Reputedly the best tea in town. All much of a muchness though. Dal Bhaat around 100Rs or so. Grab a plate of chaana, a chia and watch the village ramble by. Excellent.
Heading down the road towards the National Park entrance on the right(about 200metres from the shops above) next to the pharmacy and little book shop is another excellent tea shop. Buy one bowl of chola here and I guarantee you will come back at least twice daily for it. Tea, samosas, doughnuts et al also here. Look for the fire pit outside.
