    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 🙏

    We visited in feb 22
    Returned from Almoda side, before 10 km of mukteshwar, we entered in dark forests
    There are no crowed, no vehical, only sound of birds and it is memorable visit.
    It is zero point at temple.
    You climbed up some steps to get the temple.

    Nice location and must visited place when you plan Nainital trip.

    Nice Place to visit if you have kids. Need 2-3 hrs to spend with some tiresome walks. You have to trek high as you go on to see more animals as zoo is situated on top as name sujjest high altitude.
    You can easily get vehicles from zoo pont on Mall road on sharing basis at economical rates.
    Tiger cage is in starting only so elderly people can avoid going to top as trek is tiresome

    The Eco cave garden is a fun place to explore the different types of caves. I could scale 4 caves on my own here and be careful to not slip.

    On the other side of the hill, you can feel the magnificent Himalayas ... the great snow covered mountain covering the entire north of India. While, it looks wonderful, you can see the black patches on the snow, not sure, whether the snow melted even in mid-December and it's the bare rock or, it's the effect of pollution, as mentioned by a local vendor. I think, Himalaya is losing it's grandeur due to losing of snow cover/glaciers due to global warming and may look like just a series of rocky structures in next century. We all need to be really concerned and contribute our part to save this earth and our nature.

    Jungle- lore resort in Pangot village tucked in a valley was so refreshing after two years of staying home on account of Covid. My cousin Vasumathi and I had spent five days last week in this beautiful unspoiled place watching birds even while sitting on the Cheed cottage balcony. The view was fantastic and on our early morning visits to sight the birds we had wonderful view of Nanda Devi peak. The food was excellent and being a diabetic I was more fussy than my cousin but the staff was excellent in attending to our every requirement. Bhuvan, who manages the resort was a very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs There are only four cottages in the property and cheed cottage was the best . Our two guides Puran Joshi and Mahesh Rajput were also very good.
    My cousin and I are senior citizens and what was missing in the place was railing to hold on while climbing down or up the steps. It is a place to go when you can and also a place to recommend to your friedns.

    Nainital Ropeway is excellent. You get a bird’s eye view of Nainital Lake and the ropeway will take you to Snow view point where you get to see snow capped mountains. The only downside is that there are only two cable cars and a cable car comes after every 4 minutes so the line is very big.

    This is the official summer residence of Governer of Uttarakhand. This place is closed when the governer or other dignitaries are staying. The place can be visited at a nominal entry fee. The guided tour is restricted to the main entry and the hall, the balance places are out of bound. One can click a few photos after the tour and return. The complete tour is just for 15-20 minutes. The property is worth seeing. Visitors are not let in separately. All visitors are allowed to go inside in a group under a guide. The guided tour for us started at 11 am and its better to reach 15 min prior. Worth a visit for clicking beautiful pictures.

    Himalayan Botanical Garden.
    It is located around 8 Kilometers from Nainital. One can always combine with other attractions in the same direction as Wood Land WaterFall, Khurpatal Viewpoint etc.
    The entry fee is ₹ 50/-
    There is one descriptive board which gives the history and how the Himalayan Botanical Garden came about.
    It was started on 27 factors of barren, thorny erosion land in 2005. After seeing the accompanying photos one is filled with admiration for the Forest authorities of the Nainital Forest Divison for doing such a wonderful job in converting that barren land into such a wonderful Himalayan Botanical Garden. 
    The botanical garden has a large collection of rare, endangered plant species.
    It also houses rare exotic varieties of many plants, cacti, and medicinal and variety of orchid plants.
    Looking at the variety and beauty of the plants and flowers one is filled with wonder and admiration for the beauty of nature.
    There is a section where a collection of large varieties of butterflies, moths and insects are displayed along with little information about them.
    Very educative and enjoyable looking at all those beautiful, colourful butterflies and moths. 
    Going around this beautiful and amazing place fills you with admiration and wonder.
    For lovers of nature, plants, butterflies, moths this is a must-see place.
