  • Pretty beautiful lake in the midst of Nainital, though somewhat busy. Boating on this lake is pretty nice and peaceful. There are various types of boats available for rent. This lake is flanked by very busy markets on its 2 sides. Fairly clean too

  • This lake is the heart of Nainital. You can enjoy it whole day without getting bored. Its like heaven. You can enjoy the boating here. Feed fishes. Take a walk around lake and visit different temples, eat good food, enjoy hot chocolate. Lose yourself in nature.

  • This lake is the heart and most beautiful place of this hill station. It's mango shape can be seen from the hill top. You can enjoy the view by getting into boats during the day. The Mall road is on it's one side so that you can enjoy the view while walking on it.Very fresh and chilling weather even in summers. One of the must visit hill stations of India.

  • It is a very prestine lake with clear water. Lots of fishes.they have a filtration plant to make sure water is clean. The views are an amazing with the surrounding greenery all around. One of the best well maintained lakes I have been till date

  • Absolute beauty of a lake. If you can get a hotel overlooking the lake, it is a treat for the eyes. A stroll in the mal road along side is a perfect way to spend an evening specially during mild winters.
