  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 1, 2013
Naukuchiatal is very natural place surrounded by mountain and its best place for relaxation of mind, you can get mental peace and also enjoy adventure. It is small village but it is extra ordinary at early morning. And in this area you can also enjoyed paragliding.

"Glimpse of kumoun hills"

  • Posted May 21, 2013
Natural exotic excellent elite and fresh location.Mind boggling! lake view resort the best thing is cup of tea on lake side with sound of birds early in the morning.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is Good. Must lunch at purohit hotel at Nainital just near sbi branch in front of lake, remote bike ride for kids at lake side. Market don't spent much except local made things. Umang NGO made things are good to buy.Cave watching early morning is best. Must bargain in cabs. Five points approx is 800 to 1000 for traverra cab.

Activities & things to do: Paragliding at lake resort-1300 to 1500 is price. must bargain. Manoj is person with whom you can contact. Excellent breath taking experience. Early morning is good arround 8 am. Only 5 km from club Mahindra or lake resort .Don't make arrangements by hotel go directly so you will preserve hotel commission. Lake paddle boating is another activity.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Avoid bight travel , small cars are good to travel. If big group rather than picking bus go for travera two or three as per persons. Must have anti emetic medicine like avomine or pantaprazole and pain killers on traveling.Car horn breaks and battery must be checked.Blow horn at acute turning is must.Slow driving not problems but safe driving is must.Must have tea water and light refreshment with you. May is best to travel. Don't pick hotel in City area or crowded area. Have dust bin along with you to avoid throwing dust here and there.
