Trek if possible

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.

Gives you complete view of Nainital on one side and Himalayan ranges on other side. Try trekking from lovers view point (About 5 kms). There are also horses (Mules) available for hire (700 Rs per person) to ride you through jungles to tiffini top and back.

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.
