Nainital Lake – Why sitting besides this beautiful lake is all the therapy you need.
Nainital is a beautiful little town in the state of Uttarakhand. It is at a distance of 304 km from Delhi and it takes 7 hours to reach there by road. It is a popular hill station. So, it’s better to go here during off-season or weekdays.
Like any other hill station, it has a popular Mall road too. There are many other activities that you can do while in Nainital. But I am the kind of person who stays away from shopping and doing other touristy things.
My daughter insisted on taking a boat ride in the beautiful lake just a little before sunset. She was so happy to see the ducks, and the fishes. I have never seen so many fishes together.
Post the ride, I looked for a quiet time. I put on my earphones and took a walk along the lake. There is a beautiful path alongside the lake, wherein you can sit back, and just enjoy the calm and serene lake. I watched the sunset, and engaged in my favorite activity, people watching and wondering about their lives. I think someday, I will find my story in one of these faces.
The lake looks really pretty at night too with lights from the nearby hotels and houses creating a wondrous reflection in the water.
There a lot of stay options to choose from in Nainital, according to your budget and preferences. I like staying closer to the lake. We stayed at, The Himalaya Hotel, which is again a budget stay option. It is on the lake only and the good thing is that they have a parking space. The food was okay and rooms are average.
Our next stop was Motia Pathar, which is 20 km from Mukteshwar. I will be sharing my review of the place and the property soon. Looking forward to your feedback and suggestions.
