In the North Indian State of Uttrakhand, Nainital is an amazing place to visit. In this blog, I am sharing some of my experience from my Nainital trip.
Nainital, a Hill Station, is very popular for Dal Lake. Also Cave gardens but i’ll talk about that later. People can take a boat ride in the dal lake, and experience the local market around it. The most popular market is obviously the Tibetan Market, where the true art and culture of the city can be seen. Nainital is also known for locally made candles. One can literally find all possible fragrances, styles and shapes of candles including marijuana candles. The one I bought is in form of a mini lantern. I think I lost that candle now. Oops…
Cave Gardens, Zipline:
The next place to visit on a Nainital Trip is the Cave Gardens. Here, you not only get to take a walkthrough 6-8 caves of different styles but at the end you get to zipline your way back. Adventurous isn’t it!
Waterfalls and Mountains, Nainital Trip:
The third popular spot is high up in the hills almost into the clouds. You might find locals with professional binoculars/the telescope thing as I have shown the picture that I have attached below. They showed us the far apart neighboring mountain and mentioned about the flags hoisted on it. I honestly forgot the details about those flags, please comment if you know. There is also a waterfall nearby on the hills, I’ll include the pictures too.
Travelling and Convenience:
In general, walking in the city and hiking up the hills has been very peaceful in this serene city. Just avoid to hike late night in non-market areas, because you might become dinner of some wild animals, yes beware of wolves and cheetahs. Although we did hike the same path twice, once at late night, and the next morning. But my experience was very terrifying at night. That’s a whole chaotic story. Hehehe. I will describe it to you when we meet in person. Hehehe.
The city is just too convenient to travel, they even have a ‘rent a Royal Enfield/ or any bike’ scheme at a cheap price. They even allow renting the traditional clothing for an hour or half, nearby the Dal Lake, so one could take pictures in it.
Being a hill station, network (cellphones) problems may be faced, so that must be kept in mind. Take a post-paid sim with yourself because the pre-paid ones may betray you.
