After visiting Bhimtal lake,we went Nainital which is 21 km from Bhimtal.After reaching Nainital, we enjoyed boat ride in Nainital lake about an hour. Here, you can feel the fresh air and beautiful view of hills.
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.
Rain ! Rain ! Rain ! Clouds ! Clouds ! Clouds !
Since it had rained, pedal boats were not operational leaving us with the only option to board the row boat. Boatman Naveen Joshi, a smart educated gentleman, shared a lot of stories about Nainital. The boat floated on water like a little mermaid, wading through the gentle waves as Naveen skillfully oared it. Expressing his concern over ecological depletion coupled with corruption and politics, he said there is a dire need of saving all natural resources for the world to survive. We could not agree more. A graduate from Nainital College, Naveen is also a part time trekking and swimming coach. The talented man really impressed us.
To avoid the rush and to fully get absorbed in the nature’s lap, we opted to do boating at the Naini lake in the evening around 6 PM. Since this is the closing hour, the boat riders will not rush in completing the round to get their next customers, so purchase your tickets, sit back and just breathe in the fresh air and get a complete view of the city.
