I woke up early and decided to walk down the countryside route. This was the first view I encountered after reaching to a certain height.
Next we headed to tiffin top..which was at a height of 7800ft. Wait, the best journey to reach the place which we chose was horse riding which was charged Rs 800 per horse and trust me it was totally worth and that was so adventurous on the curvy Jim Corbett mountain roads and I was shit scared in the beginning and controlled my adrenaline rush and some how managed to maintain my position over the horse.A person accompanied us and was talking all along so that we won't be afraid of the journey. But the view was truly breathtaking. We took a ride for about 10kms and reached tiffin top which was highest point and from there we could see entire surrounding cities and the mighty Himalayas. And we were above the clouds and could clearly see the sunset turning down form the clouds.
Visit to Tiffin TopAfter spending some time near the lake, we decided to visit Tiffin Top which is another recreational site meant for travel enthusiasts. The best part of visiting this place is that it is located atop a hill and one of the most convenient ways to reach the place is by riding on a horse.This sounded to be an interesting proposal for the entire family as we didn't even remember the last time we rode on a horse. We, thus, decided to avail this golden opportunity and make the most of it.It was fun riding on the stone cobbled path. The balmy weather was the icing on the cake. After covering every few metres, we would stop to witness the scenic beauty of Nainital from different altitudes.We also got a chance to have a glimpse of Amitabh Bachchan's school. The path was dotted with tall trees on both sides making us feel close to nature. After having some great fun on the way, we finally reached the tiffin top. I was flabbergasted seeing the aerial view of the hills. We captured the hills' scenic beauty in our cameras since it would help us reminisce in the good times we were having after returning.We ate to our heart's content and headed back to the starting point. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip that we knew we will fondly cherish.
