This place has an awesome view of both the lake and the himalayans in the same line along side with the top view of Rajbhavan, the golf course and almost everything at Nainital. You can either hike or a take horse ride to get up there, i prefer the horse ride as it much more convenient and consumes less time.

Very bad experience, and not at all worth visiting. Beware of touts (Even the Taxi driver is a part of this) who charge double/triple the stipulated horse-ride fee. Instead visit the Mall road and take a Ropeway to Snow-view point.

Although, its supposed to be traveled by a horse, you can walk to this place in about 45 mins. The view from this place is awesome, you get to see the famous Sherwood, Raj Bhawan etc. Must Walk.

Like all Hill Stations , a Sight Seeing and Horse Riding Destination. But the Best part is there are photographers who dress you up like Dacoits with Guns and Shoot You.

Travelled to Tiffin top on a horse and was a unique experience... the view on the way and visit to Land's end was a excellent view.. Dorothy's seat derives its name from an English woman of the same name who died here when she fell into the valley from this spot... an excellent view of the entire nainital valley is... More

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...
