Create an itinerary including Tiffin Top (Dorothy's Seat)
Enjoy a great view of the Himalayas, the countryside, and Nainital city from Tiffin Top (Dorothy's Seat), an observation point and a popular picnic spot on Ayarpatta Hill. Standing at 2,292 m (7,520 ft), the stonework bench at the station offers sweeping views of the hills with snow-capped peaks in the background. Built by a British colonel in memory of his wife Dorothy in 1936, the observation point offers inspirational views for painters and photographers. The trail to the top, which spans about 4 km (2.5 mi) from Nainital, meanders through rugged hills with lush greenery. Horseback rides can be arranged at Barrapathar, while more adventurous visitors can get their kicks with rope-sliding activities. Planning Nainital trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • Try to visit in winters. That is when the view is clear. This is what the people told me there. The place was crowded and dirty when I had visited. Lots of chips packets and tobacco pouches lying...

  • This place was the worst one that I visited in Nainital. Full of garbage strewn all around. The view from the place is average.

  • Good place to go You can view all the mountain peaks from here. Best time to go is after snowfall.. The way is full of woods and inclined. But once you reach there, all the fatigue vanishes .. There are some shops too providing cold drinks.. The other way leads to ayyar jungle camps
  • A amazing place to see the view of Nainital city. You can enjoy with friends and family as well. Canteen also available on the top you can take tasty food. I visited first time with my business team mates.
