Nainital, the Lake District of India, located in the Himalayan belt amongst the Kumaon hills, is a paradise for nature lovers. A splendid holiday spot with a rich treasure of lakes and hills, Nainital is a destination for the young and the old alike.

Nainital is referred to as the lake of three sages, or the Tri Rishi Sarovar as mentioned in the Manas Khand chapter of the Skanda Purana. As recorded in history, the three sages, Atri, Pulastya, and Pulaha stopped over at Nainital on their pilgrimage, to quench their thirst. Finding no water, they dug a hole and transferred some water into it to from the sacred lake of Tibet, Mansarovar. Thus the famous lake of Nainital came into existence. Another legend has it that the left eye or Nain of Lord Shiva’s wife Sati fell in this center and formed an emerald eye shaped lake, and thus emerged the city of Nainital.

Recent history records reveal that Nainital was brought into limelight by P. Barron, a British sugar merchant, in 1839. The beauty of Nainital with the central lake cushioned among the forests attracted this person to build a house named Pilgrim’s Cottage and settle in Nainital. Barron gave way to the trend of settling down in Nainital and soon the city became an important administrative town. Nainital is known for its famous landslide of 1880 which leveled out the entire city.

The best getaway from the crowded and busy cities, Nainital is a peaceful zone nestled in the lap of Mother Nature. If you want to get close to Mother Nature and enjoy the lavish picturesque surroundings, Nainital is the place to be. Away from the maddening crowd and pollution of our hometowns, Nainital packages proves to be a lovely page out of your dream book!

Nainital – The Pride Of The Himalayas!

  by Akshay Balraj  on Dec 13, 2009
Nainital, a hill station, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Famous for its lakes and snow capped mountains, it offers the tourists an exhilarating experience of nature's wonders.

Travel within city

Nainital is small hill town situated in the foothills of the Himalayas and is a popular tourist destination which has many good modes of internal transportation. The nearest railway station is at Kathgodam which is located around 35 km from the town. There are taxis available outside the station and they charge around Rs 300 to the city. Some of the hotels also have taxi services and they charge around Rs 600 to the city. For travelers who are arriving by air, the best option is the Pant Nagar airport. It is located two hours away and pick services have to be pre arranged through the hotels. However the airport has only six scheduled flights per week.

Rented Bicycle

The local transportation around the town is easy to avail as it is a small town. There are two options available to a traveler. One can either opt for bicycles which are found around the city center. They cost around Rs 10 per hour and a fun way to see the town.

On Foot

However the best option is to travel by foot. Many of the small streets are not accessible by vehicles and travelers can see many places on foot. During the summer vehicles are not allowed near the mall and makes walking a good experience.


You can find 74 hotels in Nainital under following categories:
