  • Have a cup of tea at the highest point in Nainital (8622 ft). Breathtaking views
  • It's a good trek to have in Nanital and can be easily be done without a guide. However as a personal experience, there is a main route to trek, and there are some little paths to side experiences. If you're willing to take some risk (which I don't recommend if you're not very familiar with trekking and sense of the woods) then these side paths are worth exploring as the trek itself is good and the view (which is different from the main Naini Peak view) is a cherry on top.
