3) As we had our return bus on Day 2 night from Nainital. We headed towards Nainital at 5PM. We had previously visited Nainital. So, we were spending time around it rather than going in the town.
Lake No. 13 - Nanital Lake, UttarakhandA very pretty Lake of Uttarakhand, but unfortunately highly commercialized. Bhimtal and Naukuchiatal are also nearby which are equally commercial now. I am sure everyone who visits Uttarakhand plans a stay here. I had visited this place in 2004 and even then it was very famous and the mall road was full of Tourists. This place is famous for its handmade candles and some temples. It is not recommended to stay in Nanital itself as its not peaceful, look for options in Bhimtal or Naukuchital for a little offbeat stay. How to Reach- Its a six to seven hour drive from Delhi to reach Nanital, one of the nearest hill stations. Bhimtal is an hour away from Nanital. It is recommended to hire a car and go or self drive. There are many buses that take an overnight journey to Nanital too.How Many Days- 3 to 4 days is a must to stay in Nanital. You can also club the trip with Jim Corbett National park and enjoy for a week.

When you enter the beautiful town of Nainital, the first glimpse is of Naini Lake. The tranquil water in the center of the township with boating facility is one of the perfect spots to enjoy a mixture of idyllic and relaxation after travel, and the view from the center of the lake towards the city is extremely dreamy for any time of the day.
