Nainital post

Nainital is a beautiful city sited in the Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. It is also called as the “Lake District of India” that was discovered by a British trader called P. Barron in 1839. It has got its name from the goddess Naina Devi, the presiding deity of Naini Lake. Nainital is older than Christ; it was called Khadesh and was led by Khasis.

It is bounded by high mountains such as Naina on the north, Deopatha on the west and Aryapatha on the south, making it a scenic and mesmerizing destination. The pure beautiful magnificence, coupled with the serenity and solitude, makes Nainital an undisputable idyllic getaway destination.


If you visit Nainital and come back without trying the ropeway to the snow-view point, you will regret it for life. That one look of snow-clad Mount Everest from Tiffin top is a life time experience. At Nainital zoo, you will have the golden chance to see a snow leopard up-close and a Siberian tiger.

Nainital is also a lively example of cultural diversity. At the Mall Road in Nainital, one can see a gurudwara and Naina Devi temple on one side, and mosque and church on the other. Foreigners are often astonished to hear about Tallital and Mallital. In the local Kumaoni language, Talli means lower and Malli means upper, so the area below the Lake is referred to as Tallital and the area above it is called Mallital.

In its enchanting 'lakes', option of boating through yachts, paddle boats and traditional rowing boats are available. Boating is the main charm of the visitors coming to Nainital. Just 22 km from Nainital is Bhimtal Lake that is named after Bhima, which is equally peaceful and serene.
