Nainital Travel Guide

The enchanting Nainital tourism acknowledges people from all around the world. Tourism in Nainital gives one an opportunity to witness the breathtaking beauty of one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Owing to the numerous lakes scattered all over; amidst the ice-capped mountains and hills, Nainital is specifically known as the “City of Lakes”. The name Nainital, too, has been owned from the famous Naini Lake situated at the core of the district.

Nainital tourism is all about observing the resplendent grace of far-stretching plains from the elegant mountain peaks. The magnificent view of the pear-shaped, outstretching lake, guarded by the tall pine bushes on the high rising hills, is something worth a vacation here. The cold waters of the lake readily offer the best boat rides, nurturing every sailor in her lap, with immense peace and rejuvenation. From providing the best week’s stay to dining alfresco for overnight, tourism in Nainital justifies every visit with all the better reasons.

Nainital harbors a number of wildlife sanctuaries and shining tall among them is the famous Jim Corbett National Park, which is an essential part of Nainital tourism. Also known as the Lake District, Nainital attracts the soul of many travelers to the viewpoint of Sattal, which is formed by the conjecture of seven lakes – all portraying a distinct shade of green through its water. Besides this, tourism in Nainital also includes a visit to the floating restaurants on the Bhimtal Lake.

The halt to all the activities in the city is hosted by the Mall Road, which was established by the British during their rule. Apart from this, the Tiffin Top stands tall at nearly 2290m above the sea level anchoring supreme picnic spots. The thorough details of many interesting histories are successfully disclosed to the visitors by the experienced Nainital travel guides there. The place also invites everyone to take a glimpse of the extraordinary view of the ice-capped mountains at the Snow View Point, which is elevated at 2270 m altitude.


Among the many destinations here, Nainital tour guide promises a day tour to Nanda Devi Temple, which counts amongst the “64 Shakti Peeths”.The other religious visits would be to the eminent temples of Pashan Devi Temple lying exactly opposite to the Mall Road, the mighty Hanuman Garhi quivering with the sunrise and sunset points, the oldest St. John’s Church sheltering worshippers since 1844, etc. Quenching the thirst for hikers, Nainital tourism includes a trek to the mighty Guano Hills too.

The month of September books the place for one of the most ritualistic fairs known as Nanda Devi Mela. This is the hugest fair held there and is rejoiced by not only the occupants of the Kumaon foothills but also in other valleys of the majestic Himalayas.

The travel guide to Nainital also welcomes the tourists to the Sharad Utsav in October, delighted with several cultural events and functions. Assisted by Nainital tourism, witness the existing innocence of the place with the festival of PhholDeli, abiding by which, the maidens decorate the main entrance of their homes with the first flower of the season. Also stand closer and observe the serene wildlife in the heart of Nainital, with sanctuaries like Eco Cave Garden, High Altitude Zoo, Pangot and Kilbury Bird Sanctuary.
