I have experienced BHIMTALway more than any of the tourist can and the reason why i am claiming this is because i lived here for four freaking years. My college was in Bhimtal so i pretty much know about this place ,Here i am writing to share my experiences with this place,pros and cons of this place ,what else you can see in and around nainital etc and helping you to know this place better.

WHY BHIMTAL IS AN IDEAL VACATION SPOT ?

Bhimtal: people might have different opinion regarding this but with a little polish and human touch Bhimtal can look more surreal and pleasant than Nainital , Bhimtal's Lake is  one of the most sought destinations after nainital. In Bhimtal immense options are there for all my adrenaline junkies like PARAGLIDING,ZORBING, KAYAKING, BOATING,BIKE RIDING and recently they have started HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE. 
pleasant weather make Bhimtal a magical location suited for everyone.Here one feels really close to all the elements of nature - sunrise over the lake and the mountains, the (not so quiet) forest, the warmth of the fireplace in the evenings, and the relatively bright and clear constellations at night

Best time to visit Bhimtal: March to June and September to December

WHERE TO STAY?
There are several budget and luxry hotels,guest houses,home stays in Bhimtal.in off season they charge as less as 400-600 bucks for a standard room.

Food: Bhimtal has quite a few restaurants and eating joints which offer multi-cuisines ranging from Chinese, continental to the scrumptious Indian cuisine – both North Indian and South Indian. Additionally, there are local restaurants and roadside dhabas serving popular north Indian dishes. Luxury resorts and hotels have in-house restaurants and bar, i also suggest to taste proper pahadi thali because you wouldn't get this taste anywhere.make a rule to taste the local food wherever you visit and at the end of the day u might have tasted most of the(edible) things on planet (lol)
