We boarded the bus from Inter State Bus Terminals (ISBT). Bus was neat and clean. Staff behaviour was good. Bus was filled with snacks and mineral water. We stayed in Moradabad for 1 hour. Thereafter we reach Kathgodam. From there we booked a taxi. We advice kindly go for direct booking of taxi for the whole journey.

A simple train from a simple station to a simple town. Nothing complicated or dazzling about it. The purpose was to reach Haldwani somehow. Haldwani was to act as the springboard for our trip to Kumaon. The train had many compartments, thus while the train was turning one could only see the train for as far as the human eye could see.

Bus was ok and dropped us at right time in Nainital. We called the hotel to pick us up and we were in the hotel by 7:30 am. Thanks to hotel Maharaja as the pick-up point was 2 km from the main bus stand and they send their jeep within 10 minutes after we called.
