The Horse Ride to Tiffin Top is exhilarating and also adventurous. All throughout the road is stony. The Full ride is not for the faint hearted. Your life depends on the sure footedness of the horse and the guide being able to manage the horses well. Others can go for the half-ride. Few places with snow on the way up.

Nice place. Must take the horse ride otherwise its not worth the effort. Very picturesque view from the view point. Though the horse ride is a little risky but defo worth it.

A pleasant climb through woods. A bit steep if you are not very fit, but otherwise not too difficult (you can also get a pony to take you up). There are good, though slightly obscured views back down. Definitely worth climbing up here, but if you have the time then also make the effort to climb Naina Peak on the... More

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.
