Nainital Tours

nainital india, nainital tour packages, nainital, nainital tour, nainital travel india, nainital tourism, nainital tourist attractionA small town in the hills of Kumaon, Nainital is a lovely hill station surrounded by mountains on three sides. Nainital was discovered in 1841 by a Britisher called Lord Baron. The weather, the surrounding and the mesmerising beauty of this area attracted the British administrator who turned this place into the summer capital of the United Province. Being a major tourist place Nainital is always bustling with visitors and it is always better if accommodation and other facilities are prearranged.

Sightseeing at Nainital
Sat Tal : 25 km away, is a complex of seven natural lakes with good angling prospects.

Bhimtal : 23 km away, larger than Naini Lake which sports a beautiful island.

Naukuchiatal : 27 km away, is a vast nine-cornered lake, pristine and pleasant where migratory birds gather.

Naini Peak : Approx 6 km away, is the highest point within Nainital and commands a superb view of the Himalayas.

Naini Lake : This attractive lake is said to be one of the emerald green eyes of Shiva's wife, Sati. When Sati's father failed to invite Shiva to a family sacrifice, she burnt herself to death in protest. Shiva gathered the charred remains in his arms and proceeded to engage in a cosmic dance, which threatened to destroy the world. Vishnu chopped up the body into pieces, and the remains were scattered across India. The modern Naina Devi Temple at the northern end of the lake is built over the precise spot where the eye is believed to have fallen.
