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. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Nainital trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Oh! What a place it is!! The way to reach it through DSB college and Sherwood school ( by walking ) is one of it's kind!! Pure beauty!! It's something called as "Love at first sight!" The final destination, i.e. Tiffin top may not be surprising for someone but the walkway to reach there is amazing. You feel like residing there leaving behind all your purposes of life.😀😀
  • Love the view. Mountains are always loved. And this place is going to get you probably the best view and the best experience of the true beauty of the scenery of nainital. Great hillstation to visit. If you're lucky you might as well catch the snowfall. Just plan your trip right and visit in the correct month. Overall a great place. Also provides horse back riding, other adventures. Also a great place to hang around, and chill.
  • The peak contains a mesmerizing view of Nainital city. I did rappelling also which was pretty OK. You can try Horse riding also.
  • Dream place of every dreamer.... The view from here is just breath- taking (the whole of nainital is visible)!! Feeling being here can't be explained in words, it can only be felt.. I mean this place is a picturesque! Being a touristy place it's usually crowded, all come up in here to take a look at the most spendous view seen from here
  • Wow.... What a place... Unforgettable moments that we spend there. This place is for nature lover or for mountain trekkers. Morning time is Best.
