We travelled to Nainital by Car. We really enjoyed the journey to Nainital. It was very comfortable to visit Nainital by Car. We came across beautiful scenes and locales; the route from Haldwani to Nainital is a ghat road. It was an experience of a lifetime because we passed through wild forests. People who want to travel by bus or train can get the bus or Train from New Delhi up to Haldwani. From Haldwani, no train route is available. So travellers can take the local taxi from Haldwani railway station.

Car hire was not that great since they goofed up on the rates. However the driver was good and took us around. The overall journey was comfortable and safe! Had a nice time on the way. Since we covered Mukteshwar as well, so could see snow on the way. It was an awesome feeling. More »

Its a awesome experience in the way of to Nanital and we enjoyed dhaba\'s food and we saw canal in the way. Children enjoy their bath in canal and totally I would prefer everyone to go to Nainital by our own car and enjoy these five hours of journey but only one thing always in mind \"don\'t mix drink and drive\" reach safely and enjoying there a lot. Nanital environment surely makes you happy and a rememberable trip. More »

Travelling by bus to Nainital was average. Bus was stopping at more places and also had a delayed start and stopped after 45 min. It waited in Ghaziabad for other passengers for over 1 hour. Overall bus journey was satisfactory if we remove travel time as it was delayed by 3 hours. More »
