There are two ways of getting there. 1. Horse riding 2. Trekking. Trekking is tough as the road is very dirty and slippery. Horse riding is easier.

We went with Family riding on the horses to reach this place. Once we reach the Doroth's seat, it was really beautiful. You can see entire Nainital city from this place and weather was awesome. We loved it.

Could be reached by trekking (good experience) or by horse ride (equally good) The entire Nainital valley can be seen from top Because of the height, all sides of the valley, schools, cricket ground, etc. is clearly visible
