I had a good car ride. I always prefer to start early because that ensures a comfortable journey for sure! It takes around an hour to reach Nainital from Haridwar. We enjoyed a lot on the way and the journey was really good! En route we did stop our car at certain points to click some snaps. There are petrol pumps and restaurants on the way too.
