A little over rated. It is one of the few places that the tourist guide will tell you about. A nice picnic spot for a group.

It is a long trek to this place but you can also go by horses.There are only about two restaurants or shops on the top so it is advised to carry your own edibles.But,the breathtaking view from the top,is a nice memory!

Enjoyed a nice hike up here. Like many places here Nainital, you will have some good views. There are also some adventure activities up there like rappelling etc.

Worst part is- You have to go here through Horse Ride. To make things more worst they charge you Rs.700/- per horse. No value for money. There are plenty of places in Nainital which will give you a beautiful view of city. Spending 700/- bucks for Tiffin Top is not a good deal, more over the horse rider demands for... More

went there with the help of Horses and believe me it was adventurous and sometimes scary (But almost safe). take your time because horse owners will tell you to do hurry.

You get a superb view of nainital from here. Going on the horse is another thrill. The trail goes through thick jungle, sometimes you can sight a few wild animals

to reach here, you have to take the horse ride, which is the best part of the whole experience; you take horse from Barah Pathar and travel about 4 km along steep mountain and reach here; this is a breathtaking experience; on reaching there, you get a see a panoramic view of Nainital and surrounding hills
