We chose Nainital to beat the heat this summer. And having a 6 year old kid along, we gotta choose places carefully to engage her continuously. With several lakes in and around Nainital this cannot disappoint much.
We travelled to Naintal through train, deboarded at Kadgodam and took a cab to reach Nainital. The weather was lower 20s and the pristine Naini lake made then place look beautiful. If you are planning to take your own vehicle to Nainital, avoid during seasons the whole Mall road was jammed during our visit with people sleeping in their cars. An estimated 20000 cars were stuck. Avoid using self driven vehicles in end May - June.
After refreshing ourselves in hotel, which was walking distance from Naini lake, Mall road. We decided to take stroll around Naini lake. This was around 5 km expedition and we enjoyed it thoroughly. You will have splendid view of the lake from anywhere. Thandi road, Naini temple, Tibetan market, Gurudwara, mosque and churches all coexist in this wonderful stretch.
We ended the day with sumptuous dinner at Shere-e-Punjab on Mall road.
