Blessed with plush natural beauty and ancient temples, Nainital (naintal) is a hill station that calms the senses. It is a perfect holiday destination for tourists in summers. It is often referred to as the lake district of India.
Deriving its name from goddess Naina Devi, Nainital (naintal) is located in the hill state of Uttarakhand. This hill station is not only famous for its natural beauty but also for its marvelous architecture from the British era. Like many of India's hill stations, Nainital (naintal) too is criticised for tourist traffic and commercialisation, yet it manages to take your breath away. Nainital is now becoming a honeymooner's haven and is gaining popularity for its cable car and boat rides, as well as schools of high repute, some nice hotels, astonishing views, birds and the ever-present snow-capped Kumaon hills in the distance.

Blessed with plush natural beauty and ancient temples, Nainital is a hill station that calms the senses. It is a perfect holiday destination for tourists in summers and a favorite for filmmakers. Movies like Masoom, Kati Patang, Kaal, Koi Mil Gya, and Vivah have been shot here.

With places like Naini Lake, Governor's House and St. John in the Wilderness Church, Nainital is a cherished tourist spot for domestic and foreign tourists alike. Nainital also has some delicious treats in store for you, kadhi chawal being the most popular among them. The beautiful lake town of Nainital is in a celebratory mood all across the year with various festivals and events crowding the festivity calendar. Some of the prominent festivals of Nainital are Sharadotsav, Nanda Devi Mela, Garija Devi Festival and Phool Dei. Be a part of these colourful festivals and take home some cultural memories. Talking about the local food here, the people of Nainital too enjoy a typically local selection of dishes which constitute their daily meals. Some of the famous local dishes are Bhatt ki Churkani, Baadi and Raas. Most of these are very specific to the locals in Nainital, cooked mostly in their homes and on festivals. It might be hard to find at usual restaurants in the town, unless on rare, special festivals and events. If you rent a cottage and have a cook-on-board, you could perhaps request him/her to cook up a typical Nainital (naintal) meal. Apart from these, the hill station has many good restaurants that offer a world of cuisines, ranging from north Indian to Italian, south Indian to continental and even the spicy street food like chaat, bhalla papdi and even golgappas. Some of the notable dining options are Machan, Panorama (the in-house restaurant of Manu Maharani), Sakley’s and Chandni Chowk.
