Enjoy a great view of the Himalayas, countryside and Nainital city from Tiffin Top (Dorothy's Seat), an observation point and a popular picnic spot on Ayarpatta Hill. Standing at 2,292 m (7,520 ft), the stonework bench at the station offers sweeping views of the hills with snow-capped peaks in the background. Built by a British colonel in memory of his wife Dorothy in 1936, the spot is sought after by aspiring painters and photographers. The trail to the top, about a 4 km (2.5 mi) trek from Nainital, meanders through rugged hillside with lush greenery. Horseback rides can be arranged at Barrapathar and there is rope sliding activities for the adventurous ones.
