Nainital

3.6
The popular hill station of Nainital was named after the pear-shaped lake around which the resort town has evolved. Established by British colonists drawn to the area's climate and scenery, the look of the surrounding landscape recalls aspects of Britain, with the steep walls of the town's valley covered in oaks and pines. Taking a trip up to gain such a perspective on the hill station and its strikingly shaped lake represents one of the main things to do in Nainital.

Where to stay in Nainital

Nainital boasts a good number of accommodations, with the popular hill station combining the old and the new, the upmarket and the simple across its slopes. Many of the more refined options occupy commanding positions by the lake, or use height to their advantage, gaining extensive, postcard-worthy views up the hill to the northwest. Mall Road remains the place to look for the majority of accommodations in town, with a fair set of hotels, homestays, and guesthouses.
