Tiffin Top (Dorothy's Seat), Nainital

4.0
#3 of 9 in Nature in Nainital
Enjoy a great view of the Himalayas, the countryside, and Nainital city from Tiffin Top (Dorothy's Seat), an observation point and a popular picnic spot on Ayarpatta Hill. Standing at 2,292 m (7,520 ft), the stonework bench at the station offers sweeping views of the hills with snow-capped peaks in the background. Built by a British colonel in memory of his wife Dorothy in 1936, the observation point offers inspirational views for painters and photographers. The trail to the top, which spans about 4 km (2.5 mi) from Nainital, meanders through rugged hills with lush greenery. Horseback rides can be arranged at Barrapathar, while more adventurous visitors can get their kicks with rope-sliding activities.

  • Tiffin Top also k/a Suicide Point !! If you don't go here , you're an Idiot. You will get one of the best views of Nainital from here 😍 But, you will have to walk on a high elevation/slope for a long distance, you need a lot of STAMINA and water to reach the place , ( wear proper shoes ) but it's worth your hard work !! 😎✔️✌️
  • Nice place. Visit by foot. Bear the top there is a grand field worth your time.
  • Well, such places exists in any hill station. Nothing special here too. One can get a bird's eye view of the valley and surrounding mountain ranges. Spend some time here admiring the great Himalayan foothill beauties. Usually the place remains crowded with people as this is a popular place and part of local sight seeing.
  • You will get a beautiful view of nanitaal, I prefer please take horse while going up other wise it's too long way you will be tired and exhausted
  • Loved it. It was exhausting to go up there on my own but after reaching the top. It was an escape from the world problems.
