  • Magical place in the Himalayas. Visited 9 times till date. Lake has great history. Winter is too cold and summer is pleasant. Celebrated new year 2007. Life Time experience. Music all over the Mall road, people walking, dancing. Burning wood after some interval to counter the cold. Do boating in lake to support livelihood of local people. I interact with every boat sailor in my visits to understand their life style. True people with true hearts. Thanks Nainital for the excellent experience.
  • Awesome natural beauty. ...this place worth visiting several times... staying arrangements nearby is also good...good market nearby for all types of people and budget....although roads are well ...traffic is good...but sometimes it is too much crowded in holidays.
