“Lovely place to spend a peaceful evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We had a nice time in the shikara this Feb. The person who was rowing the shikara shared a scary story behind the lake's changing colours & the suicide cases linked to it. Apart from that story, I can only recollect fond memories from the lovely evening I spent with my family.

“Serenity”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

A very beautiful lake, probably unexplored by most of travelers to Nainital. But, a must visit lake. One can enjoy Kayaking as well in the lake.

“Once in a lifetime experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I have been in Nainital on a short trip. On the way from Bhimtaal to Naukuchiataal, we see paragliding. Our driver insist that it is safe and give you lot's of fun. We reach there with bumping hearts and decided to have this experience. At first, you may be feared about safety and ability of pilots of paragliders. But once you take-off, it is deadsure that IT WILL BE A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE....
After paragliding, you will also experience breathtaking mountain biking in which you will ride on a motorcycle on way back to initial point.
I never have been to adventurous sports but now I am planning to take more experience in paragliding, kayaking, rafting. Dear travelers friend, you must take this experience. Exact location is 3 Km from Bhimtal lake towards Nakuchiatal on the Junglia Gaon Road.

“Nice place to spend time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It is a big lake surrounded by mountains. There are 3 kinds of boats for boating Paddle(2 & 4 seater), Rowing(4 seater), & Shikara(5-8 seater).
You can also enjoy Horse riding at a very nominal charge. They will take you to Lemon garden (15-20min). Ride on your own.

“One of the Best Lakes in the country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Beautiful blue waters surrounded by lush green Trees, this lake is supposed to have 9 sides (Nau-Kuchia Taal). The boating experiences in the sun and shade (of the hills and the trees), with clean and fresh air makes it an amazing experience. The lake is so big, that you can't see all 9 sides of the lakes from any part of the lake. You will have to climb high up the hills (perhaps) to find a location from which you can see all the sides.
