About Boating in Bhimtal

Nainital, or commonly known as the city of lakes is one of the best gifts that nature has given us. Scenic hills, snow capped mountains, chirping birds, rocky terrains, soothing climate are some of the clauses that would be sufficient to describe the aura of the destination. Among the top things to do after visiting Nainital, boating in Nainital acquires a cult position. Apart from the Naini lake, the Bhimtal lake is one of the multitudes of magnificent natural wonders that one can find at Nainital.

The Bhimtal lake is situated just 1 hour away from the town of Nainital. All the tourists generally have Bhimtal lake boating as one of the must-dos during their visit to the town of Nainital. The lake is situated at a distance of 22 kilometers from the town of Nainital and can be visited via booking private cabs or shared taxis. The beauty of the Bhimtal lake can be devoured by the tourists by taking a boat ride across the lake.

The boating service at Bhimtal is open for the tourists every day. The boating at Bhimtal timings are from 9 am in the morning to 6 pm in the evening. The boats have a capacity of four and take the tourists on a ride across the lake. The boating at Bhimtal Nainital entry fee is 150 rupees per person. Boating at Bhimtal lake is generally visited by almost all the tourists and owing to this thick volume of tourist's feet fall, the Government has well maintained the lake for the growth of tourism industry. The complete tour around the Bhimtal lake on a boat is completed in a time of about 30 minutes.

There is also an island at the center of the Bhimtal lake which is an aquarium. The island, which earlier used to be a restaurant has been now converted into an aquarium which can be visited by the tourists. The boat trip to this island is charged at 100 rupees per person for both ways of the trip. The aquarium has separate entry charges and can be paid separately. The adults have to pay an amount of 60 rupees whereas the ticket for children costs 30 rupees per child. Visiting the aquarium takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

The lake, situated in the lap of magnificent mountains, is a must visit place for all the tourists.
