Over View

When we talk about hill stations and holiday retreats, one name that distinctly stands out is – Nainital. Nestled in the quaint Kumaon foothills, this beautiful hill retreat is a popular tourist attraction for people from Delhi/NCR and other parts of the country. While known for its gorgeous Naini Lake (from where it derives its name) there are other places of interest that you can explore while spending a casual vacation with family and friends.

The judicial capital of Uttarakhand, Nainital, was founded in 1841 by P. Barron, a sugar trader from Shahjahanpur. The city of Nainital is built in the valley surrounding Naini Lake and is around 2 miles in circumference. The city is surrounded by mountains, Naina on the North, Deopath on the West, and Ayarpatha on the South.

With gorgeous views from all parts of this hill station, it is quite popular as a weekend getaway or short vacation spot for people around the valley.
