  • As soon as you enter Nainital this will the first place you will encounter and the view from this place is just awesome there are fishes as well in this lake. It is just adjecent to mall road and have lots resturant near by. The price of boating is 200 rs with 4 people in 1 boat
  • This is the LAKE wherefrom the town got its name ... Nainital. Nainital Lake, Naini Lake, Naini Jhil all are same...a majestic, giant, picturesque, unfathomable Tal or Lake in the middle of the town Nainital surrounded by seven beautiful hills... a place most loved and cherished by countless tourists and people. Though my personal favourite is Sattal but the boating experience in Naini Lake is a memory to be preserved, particularly during morning and late afternoon. And a casual walk through the Mall Road connected with it or the Thandi Sarak, opposite of it or rather a religious visit to Naina Devi Temple...or some casual time pass in The Flattish....all are worth enjoying.
