The largest hill settlement in the Kumaon region of Himalayas
is the lake town of Nainital. A dramatic climb of 1,300 metres
over a 40 km route from the railhead at Kathgodam takes the
visitor through winding river valleys, alongside terraced farms,
lush green alpine forests and over mountain ridges, right up to
Nainital. Vantage points around Nainital offer a panoramic view
of Himalayan peaks on one side and the plains rolling down on
the other. Narrow wooded lanes through forests of oak, pine and
deodar are excellent for short refreshing walks. The older parts
of Nainital also retain colonial vestiges, including sprawling
bungalows, public schools, church and the British cemetery.

On reaching the head of the town where the highway from the
plains meets the main Mall at Tallital, you get a dramatic view
of the beautiful Naini Lake nestling in its cocoon of hills.

lake while crowds of holidaymakers throng the Mall at its edge.
