Sightseeing

The hill station of Nainital has many sightseeing places. The mountain resort of Nainital spreads along the sides of the mountains that surround the deep blue waters of the Naini Lake . The lake is fringed by the Sapta Shring or string of seven hills.

Boats and yachts can be hired for tours of the lake from the boat club at Mallital. Near the boat club is the Temple of Naina Devi , the presiding deity of Nainital. A relatively recent construction, there are steps leading down from the temple to the lake. Around the lake there are several colonial bungalows that reflect the town’s British history.

The Church of St. John in the Wilderness built in 1846 and one of the earliest colonial structures is just beyond Mallital. The Secretariat was designed in 1899 by F.W. Stephens, the architect who also designed the grand VT and Churchgate railways stations of Mumbai.

A ropeway from the Mall leads to the vantage point of Snow View , at a height of 2,270 metres. It is also possible to reach the peak by a 2 km hike along steep mountain trails or hire a pony from the Mall. At the top there is a viewing area offering a vista of Himalayan peaks. You can amble along the promenade and sit back to enjoy the view at the cafes on the summit. A further 6 kms up and you reach the Naina Peak at 2,611 metres.

On the fringes of Nainital and around town are some interesting tourist spots which can be covered by short walks. Dorothy’s Seat is dedicated to a British lady who died in a tragic accident. From here you can get a panoramic view of the town below. At Land’s End, 2,881 metres high to the south of the lake is a vantage point for a view of the Khurpa Tal.

The State Observatory about 3 kms from the lake is open to the public in the evening and an ideal place to watch the sun setting over the plains. Hanuman Garhi , a small temple off the Haldwani road also offers a good view of the valley.

Shopping

Most of the shopping is centralised around the Mall area. Shop for woollens – shawls and sweaters at Bohtia Bazaar. Candles are another item which are sold in Nainital and most tourist carry back a few – these are best bought at the Mall. Nainital is also known for wooden decorative items – so if you have a penchant for these – buy some.

Eating Joints

Because this is a town that caters to tourist traffic, all types of cuisine are available here. From Punjabi food at Moti Mahal and Sher e Punjab to fast food at Flattis and at Embassy restaurants. Ofcourse Tibetan momos are available too and most of the food served at restaurants here is pretty good.

There are a couple of places in Nainital you can stop by to enjoy a drink. Nainital Boat Club is a lakeside club which is perfect for grabbing an afternoon drink while overlooking the lake. The club has facilities that include snooker tables, a gym, card- playing rooms and a library. Enjoying these facilities comes at a price; the temporary membership at the club is a little steep. Another good place to get a drink is the Snow View Bar below the cable car station. Though there”s not much of a view to enjoy from here, it is a good place to relax with a drink after some walking around.
