Naini Lake is the main attraction of Nainital. A good stretch of the lake, at times it's dirty due to the volume of the travelers.

I was here for 4o days internship in nainital and whenever i felt low this place cheered me up. The lake is super clean and have continous supply of oxygen every night. Friendly surroundings. Thandi sadhak is the best place to go!
