Geologic Formation
Enjoy a great view of the Himalayas, the 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 observation point offers inspirational views for painters and photographers. The trail to the top, which spans about 4 km (2.5 mi) from Nainital, meanders through rugged hills with lush greenery. Horseback rides can be arranged at Barrapathar, while more adventurous visitors can get their kicks with rope-sliding activities.
