Mayawati Ashram, also known as the Advaita Ashram, is located at a distance of 22km from Champawat. It is perched at an elevation of 1940 m above sea level and attracts a large numbers of tourists from India and abroad.
It was during the third visit of Swami Vivekananda to Almora in 1898 that he decided to shift the publication office of 'Prabuddha Bharat' to Mayawati from Madras. Since then, this monthly magazine is being published here. A small museum and library are also there in the ashram. Accommodation facilities are also provided to tourists on prior request.
