I you want to see Naini lake from the top, you must trek to come on the north top here. If you can't trek, then hire horse/mule to go there. It becomes enjoyable if you trek there after big snowfall. If lucky, you may get hot tea at the top. Better to carry some energy snacks and water with you.

Horse ride will cost you 700 odd rupees but a thrilling ride to Tiffin Top. One of the must visit place in your list when you visit Nainital

No doubt on a clear day it's the best place for a fantastic view of nainital and surroundings. The long waiting for cable car is very irritating

As the tittle which I have put says it all. So, I will try to tell other things. To reach this place, one way is to trek but for those not so physically fit I won't recommend. Those not so physically fit can take a horse ride, its available near to parking lot in Nainital.

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
