Dorothy's seat or more popularly known as Tiffin Top is possibly the best attraction in Nainital. Hats off to our car driver who suggested this little gem. Our journey towards Tiffin Top started with Pony as suggested. The stretch upto the highest peak takes around one hour of strenuous ride which is truly scary. The road condition is pretty ordinary...

Any hill station offers you just weather rest of the things are just to stick around. Activities like horse riding, shooting, games n all are just business activities.. So enjoy the weather..

Another beautiful point from where you can see around Nainital with the Himalayas in the background. You can climb to this point by foot or by horses. The beauty of this point is something you need to experience.

It takes A ride on the horse for 2 hours to reach Tiffin top.Situated at height of 7520 feet provides excellent view of the Himalayas and the Nainital town. A trip to Tiffin Top brings breath of fresh air and enjoyment of the scenic beauty. A perfect spot for taking pictures as it provides the best view

Good horse ride to the top.The way is also beautiful with forest on the side. Clouds floating in the sky can be seen once on the top.Not very crowded place. The track needs repair. Worth visiting.

I would never suggest anyone to go up the mountain by riding horses. We were 5 people and chose horse riding. Earlier horsemen agreed to send 1person with each horse but when we started going up, we saw there was only 1 little boy with 3 horses which most risky thing as horses intend to move alone. They even gave... More

Horse ride to go to this place is good and is a life time experience.Passing through lush green jungle is really tough on us and horse as well. Brilliant View's available. Worth going.

If you got nothing to do and "kuch... More
