Nainital, a popular lakeside hillstation is only 10 kms from Khurpatal, and easily accessible via road within 15 to 20 minutes. The road to Nainital is newly constructed and therefore the drive is quite pleasant and at the same time, very scenic.
Nainital, once the summer capital of the British United Provinces, is the current judicial capital of the state of Uttarakhand and the headquarters of the Kumaon region. Located at a distance of 300 kms from Delhi, this beautiful lake town is situated at a height of 6300 feet above the sea level.
The town is beautifully set in a green valley holding an eye shaped lake which is approximately 3 kms in circumference. Legend has it that one of the eyes of Sati fell here, thus forming a lake in the shape of an eye. And that’s why the name - Naina (Eye) Tal (Lake).
There are many tourist attractions in Nainital like Raj Bhawan (Governor’s House), Nainital Zoo, Snow View Point, Dorothy Seat, Eco Cave Gardens, etc. but the most popular is boating in the Naini lake. While you are in Nainital, take one off the boats and go for an hour long boat ride.
The street food in Nainital is absolutely delish! While you’re visiting Nainital, the street side vendors on the Nainital Mall Road offer mouth watering chaat, bun-tikis and sandwiches. Also, try pastries and coffee at Sakley’s or enjoy a cold beer under the sun at The Boat House Club.
While there are many hotels in Nainital, the place gets very crowded in the summer months of April, May & June. It is best advised to stay away from Nainital during the peak period or stay in a hotel in Mallital which is decently far away from the city noise. Our hotel in Nainital is 2 kms from the Mall Road and offers all modern luxuries. Speak to our booking executive for more details.
