We decide to go to Nanital so we booked Bharat Travels for their bus service. It was quite nice. It was an AC bus so we were not sweating in summer session. The driver drove the bus quite well with decent speed. Our journey was very comfortable and there were two stops during our journey. We had lunch and rested for a while. Travellers should always choose good bus operator which provides good service.

The train is good not the best because it is old made train but I love the experience, food served was good but train took a bit more time than usual. Train stopped before reaching Lalkuan many time waiting for the signal. But after one hour late we reached Kathgodam Station.

We had to board Ajmer-Kathgodam Express at Anand Vihar terminus to reach Kathgodam which was about 32km from Nainital. This train is very convenient because we boarded the train at 6.15 am and reached Kathgodam by 11.30 am. We had to take a taxi from Kathgodam to Nainital which took approximately one and a half an hours. You need not bother about breakfast as it is available in the train and you can reach your hotel in Nainital for lunch. The travel by Ac chair car is comfortable and the toilets are clean. At the end of the train journey the attendants definitely demand tips.

It was a really pathetic experience; we made online booking from AbhiBus and regretted a lot later. I'll recommend to reach destination and collect direct tickets after looking at the condition of the bus. Seat were totally uncomfortable in our case. When we asked why AC is not working, they said they have heater (winter AC).
