Trip was really great and all of my family enjoyed a lot. We had a great time in taxi as well as in the hotel. The royal court was the hotel we booked. The service and food was really great by the hotel. On our way from Delhi we explored many dhabas and tasted some really great food. Nainital is really beautiful especially the naini lake in the center of the city. Boat ride in the lake is a must try.

Road was very good but some places the road was damaged. There are many restaurant and dhabas. The view was very good. There are many points to see. When you start the hills the cloud seems to go down. The trip was very good and comfortable. When people visit the hills the mind would be fresh.

The move by road was a good decision and I enjoyed the travel. However itís advisable to move early in the morning to avoid traffic rush of Delhi. The Ghat Road is quite scenic and beautiful. However finding a parking place is difficult in Nainital. Itís advisable to book a hotel with itís own parking. You can go to Corbett on your return back to Delhi. There is a different route to Corbett. But book your tickets for the safari well in advance. Otherwise the resorts in Corbett con you.

I had booked from Old Delhi Railway Station to Kathgodam in sleeper class. Train departed at 22:30 Pm and arrived at Kathgodam at 5:05 Am. Then we were taken a taxi from Kathgodam to Nainital. They charged Rs. 150 per head and journey from Kathgodam to Nainital was very beautiful.
