    Nice place to spend time viewing Nainital city and surrounding valley. The telescopic view of himalayas are an icing on the cake provided there is no fog. Lot of activities for kids to enjoy. Weather ...  more »

    Not much impressed. It is like any other point in hills which give you a better view of snow capped peaks. We couldn't see anything because there were clouds towards high Himalayas. Some other attractions are a few games for children, go karting, download (weightless fall), etc and restaurant.

    The ropeway ride to the top is amazing- one can get beautiful views of the Naini lake. However, the whole point of the place- to view snow clad peaks- can only be done during specific times. I tried to see those peaks but all I could see was fog and clouds. There are many activities that can be done here, albeit a bit costly than the normal rates.

    If you really wants to have good view better to visit in October as per local people in may or June month due to fog visibility is low

    Nothing to rave about. Form here one can see far off Himalayan Peaks with Binoculars. Binoculars are available at top for hire. But from mid April, non of these Peaks will be visible due to natural phenomenon of Haze. At the top few adventure activities are available from private vendors on payment basis. Few eating joints are also their.

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.
