A beautiful Lake named Naukuchiatal

Naukuchiatal - as the name signifies - is a beautiful lake having Nine corners. We preferred visiting Naukuchiatal due to its proximity to Nainital, and chose it alongwith Nainital due to the influx of tourists in Nainital in Summers.

With lush green mountains, blue waters and a peaceful place; Naukuchiatal is an ideal holiday destination for travellers to go and explore its natural beauty. Alongwith other activities, we just sat and watched variety of birds for hours, amazing.

Naukuchiatal experiences cool weather all round the year. Although, one can visit this place at any time of the year; but, the best time to visit Naukuchiatal is from March to June. We visited this beautiful place 2 times; in April and July. We also took a trip to Bhimtal; the largest lake in Kumaon, and Saat Taal near Naukuchiatal - just for adventure. My suggestion - If you want to run away from the concrete jungles of the city; just go to Naukuchiatal. You won't regret. For me, Naukuchiatal Is A Place to Relax.
