Nainital — 3 nights

The popular hill station of Nainital was named after the pear-shaped lake around which the resort town has evolved.
Visiting Naukuchiatal Lake and Naina Peak will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Pangot and Kilbury Bird Sanctuary and Hanuman Garhi. Venture out of the city with trips to Bhimtal Lake (in Bhimtal), Hanuman Temple (in Naukuchiatal) and Naukuchia Taal (in Ranikhet). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Nainital Lake, stroll around Eco Cave Gardens, admire the striking features of Governor's House Raj Bhawan, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Goddess Naina Devi.

Sacred & Religious Sites · Architectural Buildings · Beaches
It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.
