  • U must go to this place....very easy to go...u can go by tracking also.....its on a very high point but once u will reach its beUtiful.....my suggestion will be to buy one side ticket at one time coz both side ticket will give u only one hr to enjoy.
  • Its nice place to see snow covered himalayan peaks...if you are lucky no cloudes with cover.
  • This place office you view of Snow clad mountains subject to visibility and fog. You cannot reach here by working normally because it's quite a walk and you have to climb a lot of height. So the walk is steep. There are some good activities here for kids. Some eating joints. Washrooms are available. All in all this is one of the highest places of Nainital which gives you a panoramic view of the lake and the City. You can reach here either by driving or hiring a car or through cable car. Driving on this route is not suggested or possibly it must be prohibited because the route is tedious and extremely difficult to drive. There is a bar here. And if you wish to stay here you can stay in Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam guest house away from the Hustle and bustle of the city. During winters this place receives snow first if the city received it snow at all.
  • Cant explain the veiw off himalaya from snow point, its a life time expreince to see nanda devi mountain from powerful binoculars and also route to snow point is very nice from malli tal, one can see kumoan mountain range and garhwal mountain ranges from snow point.
  • Awesome place...must visit...it's become a but crowded now but still very worth visiting it!
