Nainital

Of Lakes, Snow-Capped Mountains, and Panoramic Views

Nainital is truly the treasure trove of Kumaon, enveloped in a thick foil of nature and accentuated by the scent of flowering peonies blending mystically in the crisp fresh air. Since the British period, it has been one of the most visited hill stations in North India. Also known as 'The Lake City of India', Nainital is one of the best hill stations to visit in India.
