Nainital is a charming hill station located at the foothills of the Kumaon ranges in Uttarakhand. Very clean lake. Fairly priced boat ride. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in India.
Some of the important places in the district are Nainital , Haldwani , Kaladhungi , Ramnagar , Bhowali , Ramgarh , Mukteshwar , Bhimtal , Sattal and Naukuchiatal . Nainital’s unending expense of scenic beauty is nothing short of a romance with awe-inspiring and pristine Mother nature.

As it is the place surrounded by lakes so firstly it is very little pollution.you can take a fresh breathe here.On one side you will experience the mountain range.on the other side you will find the big lake.don’t forget to take a ride on the lake.then go to the temple to offer prayer.do also visit the gurudwar beside.The last and my favorite is the shopping.I found ot to the best place to buy candles and some of the garments.wooden items are also of great quality.
Thanks to nainital police and U.K government 🙏

Do take the long boat ride . The feel is very good. Half of what you pay goes to the boatman and the other half goes to the owner of the boat. Use the life jackets. Enjoy the ride anytime

The Nainital lake is the main attraction of Nainital. The lake has boating facility for paddle boat as well as rowing boats . The lake has a perimeter of about 4.5 km and it's a beautiful walk around the water body in the morning or evening. The boat ride costs about Rs.210 per boat. On one side of the lake is the mall road which has many shops & restaurants. Parking around the lake is next to impossible. Better to hire a cab or a cycle rickshaw. If you are driving to Nainital, do book a hotel with parking facility otherwise you may have to park your car about 5-6 km from your hotel & hire a taxi. The place is very well maintained & kept clean by the administration even with so many tourists visiting the hill station. Nainital Lake is a must visit since so many other places like Naina Devi lake, Zoo, Boat House Club, Church & other prominent places are located in very close proximity to the lake.

Excellent view from window and garden. You can see Nainital Lake scenic view while sitting your window with a cup of tea.
when you open your window curtain then you can feel the fresh air and bird sounds.

The lake is beautiful. The place is well maintained and kept neat and clean. People can opt for a boat ride. It was too cold so we didnt go for a ride.

Took a walk around the lake, the market, the Temple, Gurudwara, the boating area and finally decided to take a ride. It all started with the standard packages for half lake/full lake and finally came to half lake ticket with full lake (balance in cash) + tips. Anyway, it was a good experience to take a round in the lake, which did not excite me much, as I had taken round in much bigger water bodies (reservoirs/big rivers/sea). The positive feeling is the neatness and the clean water with no trash or, plastic bags floating around, which has become so common in INDIA.

Not much to say about it. A beautiful mango-shaped lake in the middle of the city. A bit crowded with boats but the temple nearby looks like the threat as temple waste is flown in the lake (what I saw) and people feed fish with the Prashad which may be unhealthy for fish,
