Nainital

The popular hill station of Nainital was named after the pear-shaped lake around which the resort town has evolved.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Nainital Lake and Goddess Naina Devi. Step out of Nainital to go to Bhimtal and see Bhimtal Lake, which is approximately 52 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at High Altitude Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Eco Cave Gardens, take in the spiritual surroundings of Neeb Karori Kainchi Dham, and contemplate the long history of Jama Masjid Mosque.

Start your trip to Nainital by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Mumbai to Nainital is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) so you can drive to Jim Corbett National Park.

It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.
