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.

its all about 1.5 hrs risky horse ride , local guides and taxi-drivers force you to see the place with all sort of stories about the film shooting and jungle safari , of which many of the stories are pure lie , they think tourists are dumb to believe all those stories.. If you got nothing to do and "kuch... More

There are two places that are worth seeing here. Once is the highest point which gives view of Nainital (lake and all). People who enjoy hills, scenic places will like it here. The other place is a plateau like circle surrounded by tall Deodar trees, just 10 minutes before the highest point. This is a very serene and picturesque location... More

Unfortunately we did not make it to the top... we decided to walk up to the top on February 10th. The idea of a good heart pumping walk, in the morning, was energizing. The road/path, which is made of stones instead of being paved...(rounded stones in fact) is in pretty sad disrepair. ESPECIALLY if there has been recent rain! As... More
