Me and my boyfriend had an amazing hike up here, view was amazing. You can also get up there by horse but i think you will appreciate the view more if you did manual labour.

The Tiffin Top of Dorothy's seat if the highest point in the Nainital city. The entire panoramic view of the city and the Nainital lake is awesome. One needs to hire horses from the main road leading into Nainital to visit this place or if are fond of hiking then you can trek to this place.

The car only takes you to a certain point where you take horses further, it is an absolute must for nature lovers , only avoid going there on rainy and cloudy days as you won't be able to see much from the top, but still the ride could be enough if you love nature

My horse guide was not that great, he was wantedly making the horse to run. The guide does not give lot of time to spend... More
