Nainital is a very popular hill station in the northern part of India in the State of Uttarakhand. It is called the Lake District of India and attracts local as well as International tourists for its natural beauty as well as adventure activities. Nainital is blessed with incredible valleys, magical gardens, unseen wonders, die-to-fall scenery and a pleasant atmosphere that encourages everyone to see this paradise any number of times. Our plan was to have a short trip of two days.
Our day started with Naina Peak. Naina Peak (at 2615 metres) is the highest peak of Nainital and offers breathtaking views of the snow-covered Himalayan mountain ranges and has an excellent environment to please your senses. Surrounded by dense forests and unexplored scenery, the peak also allows you to witness its beauty on a pony ride.
Nainital High Altitude Zoo
Next was the High Altitude Zoo. This zoo is an ideal place for animals and birds’ lovers, and has numerous endangered species such as the Himalayan Beer, White Peafowl, Leopard, Barking Deer, Japanese Macaque, Golden Pheasant, Steppe Eagle and Sambar.
Snow View Point
Another point, the Snow View Point is one of the most popular places of Nainital and is a perfect base for couples to rekindle their romance, for adventure buffs to try their hand at recreational activities, for nature lovers to admire the scenery and for families to have a fun-filled time at the amusement park with their kids. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as you might need to walk a lot. Also, bring a woollen jacket or pullover along as the places sometimes turns too cold after sunset.
One more point, the Lands' End is perfect for admiring the serenity and scenery and is a treat to witness the unobstructed views of the Nainital region encompassed by Kumaon mountains and Khurpa Lake. It is a great place for experience seekers and is no less than a heaven for nature lovers.
St. John in the Wilderness Church
Lastly, we visited St. John in the Wilderness to take a glance at the history dating back to the British Era. Nestled amidst the dense forest covered by deodar and pine trees, the calm aura and charm of the church makes it a must-visit spot on your two day trip, especially for the solitude seekers, where the serene environment soothes your mind and soul.
The day started with a visit here. Thandi Sadak means Cold Road. This is a cold pedestal road that offers a delightful experience for people who love jogging. It is an ideal place to walk like a local and soak up its beauty.
No visit at Nainital is complete without this. Nainital Lake is a natural freshwater lake, situated amidst the main town of Nainital. It is one of the prime places to visit in Nainital town and offers paid boat rides to visitors.
Naina Devi Temple
We went to Naina Devi Temple, boasting of an excellent hilltop location with a breathtaking view of landscapes and mountain ranges, offers holy and mystical vibes to the devotees of Naina Devi. It is widely renowned for its presiding deity, attracting holidaymakers from everywhere apart from the Hindu community of India.
Tibetan Market & Mall Road
Tibetan Market is also known as Bhotia Market and is a place where you can find everything from Tibetan clothes to Himalayan bags, shrugs, scarves, artificial jewellery, ethnic wear and woollen mufflers under one roof. It is indeed a go-to place for shopaholics. Also, Mall Road is a cluster of many small shops offering varied products.
