Isn't this beautiful?

Go through this link.


Basically Tiffin Top is a trek, situated approx 4 km from Nainital. If you are in Nainital or nearby place around 40-60 km, then you deserve a beautiful view of Kumaon hills and Naini lake. A popular picnic spot in Nainital, Tiffin Top (also known as Dorothy's Seat) is located on Ayarpatta hill. It will leads you to full sight of Nainital. It is an trek comes under easy type, if you compare this with all Himalayan treks which takes 2 days to 2 months. This trek takes 3-4 hours, depending on your speed. You can also go through horses, which are easily available from where trek starts. I would suggest, if you have your legs in good condition. Go with that. In evening(after 6 pm) trekking is not allowed. In total it would take 6-10 hours for all trek.

HIGHT ABOVE SEA LEVEL :- 2084 meters.

Summers and winters both are preferable to go, it depends on you, what you want to see. In summers climate will be little moderate, and you can get sight of whole area. In winters you will find snow all around you. Sometimes temperature goes down upto 0 degree Celsius. Rainy season are not preferable at all. Not any type of trek in hilly areas. Because landslides are even in these areas. At sudden you will find yourself in problems. In short, temperature will be good all the time. It varies from 10 degree Celsius to 27 degree Celsius. Plan your trek according to you.
