  • Awesome lake.⛵⛵⛵⚓⚓⚓ Boating in this lake means you feel the unforgettable experience. Clean water, clean air and surrounding with green mountains. Must try this unforgettable experience. I recommend to everyone. For safety obey instruction given by boating persons.
  • Very beautiful and lovely lake. Boating options are there. View of entire Nainital is there which is awe inspiring. Water is relatively quite clean and not smelly. You could see big and small fishes towards the edge of lake. The weather is mostly very pleasant.
  • One of the popular Hill station in India in Uttarakhand state. Famous for the lake ...A pretty lake that once a European man fell in love with, Naini Lake today serves as a major tourist spot for people from all over the country... Famous for its inter connected rocky caves, hanging gardens and the musical fountain, the Eco Garden are a set of six small caves in the shape of various animals. In the evenings, you can see the spectacle of the musical fountain with various audio video effects...
  • Lake is surrounded by hills, what a combination. Very good for boating. Weather is awesome even in summer season. Walking/sitting around the lake will give you calm down feel. There is very good government library near the lake enjoy reading there. Good fast food and prices are above average. Very good experience.
