“Fantastic Boat Ride”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We had a fantastic boat ride and more than half hour spent on the boat was divine and serine. Just Awesome.

The boat ride was not too expensive and it worth every penny.

“Perfect Getaway..”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Small Place but yet so many things to do when you are in Nainital, Located around 280 Kms from National Capital , It is a perfect getaway .We Reached there on a cold windly Thursday of December 2012, The Moment you reach Tallital you tend to forget the fatigue of Journey , Just by the first look of the Lake .
Best Time to visit - I would say Anytime is best time for Nainital other then Rainy season as land slides are common.
Best place to stay - Depends on choice if u wish to stay closer to the lake then , Many options all along the Mall road , If you wish to stay on top and overlook the valley with lake then Hotel Arif Castle and others are good , we opted lake view room of Arif Castle.
Leave aside your Car in A ground called "flat" as most of the travel with be either on foot or Horse Back . There are many places to visit such as China peak , Camel's Back , Snow View (Cable Car is available up til this point) Hanuman Gadi Observatory , Thandi Sadak , Mall road ,
All in all Great place to visit with minimum 3 days at hand.

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is the main attraction of Nainital, The boating is cheap and really enjoyable ride of around 45-60 minutes. Try doing it during sunset when sun has almost set and it about to get dark. The view you will get of lighted nanital is superb.

“Lake with a experience”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had visited three lakes during our trip namely Bhimtal lake, nakuchiatal lake and naini lake

Naini lake is by far the most happening lake.... Great view around the lake. Boating, shopping, snacks corner, temples....

Also around the lake the whole nainital is situated. It was a great experience
