Another side of the ride is called snow viewpoint, I guess because one can spot snow-capped Himalayan peaks (if weather permits) from here. There is a designated viewpoint with a powerful telescope to enjoy the amazing view (Rs. 10 per person), but much depends on the weather. It was cloudy at the time we went so we could not spot any peaks. I could spot some village homes and a temple on the hill. It was fun to watch through the telescope though.Rest of the place has nothing much to write about. Usual things like eateries, shops, kids play activities occupy much of the place, there are some interesting trails to explore though.One gets to spend around one hour here and then ferried back by the cable car to the side of mall road.So, after reaching the other side, we sat on the lakeside for a while and visited Naina Devi temple. The temple is dedicated to Maa Naina Devi and considered one of the Shakti Peethas of Hindu Mythology. According to the local legends and history, the temple was originally built in the 15th century and later reconstructed in 1883 after it was affected by a landslide that occurred in 1880.The temple complex also houses a big Hanuman statue, a Shiv Lingam and a mandir dedicated to the Dashavatarams of Hindu Mythology. The temple with its lake background has a divine aura all over.We strolled along the lakeside for a while and got a chance to watch a mini-musical performance by local police to which the tourists danced. It was fun to watch the police and tourists enjoying themselves. It seemed like a regular affair, but I am not sure.
The Rope-way which connects Snow-View Point with Mallital gives panoramic vistas of snow-capped Himalayan peaks and complete Nainital hill station.
Ropeway Another fascinating thing we did was the cable car ride we took to the Snow View Point. It was definitely an enthralling experience and I could enjoy the breathtaking views of the mountains. Since we visited the place in summers, we couldn't get a chance to see the snow-clad mountains but were still happy to get a panoramic view of the Naini lake. Those looking for some adventure can enjoy some swings and rides that are there. We descended via the same ropeway and returned to our hotel. The next day we had to leave for sightseeing in Bhimtal.
• The ropeway is another major attraction in Nainital that connects the town to the Snow View Point. From the Snow view point, enjoy the panoramic beauty of Nainital, the enchanting lake, and the snow peaked mountains.
