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 Pangot and Kilbury Bird Sanctuary and Governor's House Raj Bhawan will thrill your kids. Explore Nainital's surroundings by going to Bhimtal (Bhimtal Lake & Bhimtal Island Aquarium). There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Nainital Lake, stroll around Eco Cave Gardens, get to know the resident critters at High Altitude Zoo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Goddess Naina Devi.
