The view from here is excellent, you can see the himalayan range and naina lake from this point. Make sure you carry warm clothes when you visit this point.

Please walk to the top instead of taking the horses if possible. You would be able to enjoy the views more this way.

We went all the way here on a horse. It was a really nice experience. Cost was Rs600 for the whole horse tour(6 spots) and this was the final stop. Good view of the city

Tiffin means Packed Food consumed during the day. You have to trek 4 Kms to Tiffin top to enjoy and spend a quiet afternoon. Gives you complete view of Nainital on one side and Himalayan ranges on other side. Nice place to feel the cool breeze.
