Nainital ©
The popular hill station of Nainital was named after the pear-shaped lake around which the resort town has evolved.
Explore hidden gems such as Naukuchiatal Lake and Hanuman Garhi. Family-friendly places like Governor's House Raj Bhawan and Nainital Lake will thrill your kids. Explore Nainital's surroundings by going to Bhimtal (Bhimtal Lake & Bhimtal Island Aquarium). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Pangot and Kilbury Bird Sanctuary, meet the residents at High Altitude Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Eco Cave Gardens, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Goddess Naina Devi.

To see other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Nainital holiday planner.
