Visiting hill-stations during winter is a beautiful experience, with no tourists around, you get to enjoy the true essence of the town. I absolutely love being wrapped up in layers of woollens as the chilly nip in the air takes over the bright, shining sun. So as the winter season comes to a close, I decided to take a little tour of Uttarakhand. My first stop, I decided, would be Nainital, one of Uttarakhand’s most renowned hill-stations. Everyone around me told me to change my plans because apparently, Nainital is known to be too mainstream. I took up this challenge and decided to make my stay at “mainstream” Nainital, a tad bit unique and so booked myself a room at the Ayar Jungle Camp, a camp amidst wilderness.
