Very beautiful and deep lake

This lake is as deep as around 150 feet. But it's very beautiful. You can do boating here which costs around 50 rupees per person. State transport bus or private vehicle can take you there

"Great place for weekend"

It's a nice cool place to spend time with friends and family for weekend or small holiday outing. The sparkling clean water can be enjoyed if one goes for boating in the lake. Do visit lake around sunset, the hues of the sky and the reflection of scattered lights which you see in the waters of the lake is truly mesmerising.

Beautiful Nainital Lake

There are many lakes in Himalaya. May are amazing and beautiful. Some are very remote places approachable by trekking. Some by vehicles but no town or livelihood. Nainital lake having all. Its surrounding is Nainital town. It laying in middle of the town. Malls is also around the lake. So people can enjoy the mall due to Nainital lake. It's very rare one. There are no such town in anywhere in Himalaya region. Someone can refers Dal lake but there are differences between Dal and Naini Lake. It make atmosphere of town as well as people healthy. So many people come to see this beautiful lake from all over the world like me.

The Heart Of Nainital "Naina Lake"

It has been rightly regarded as Heart of Nainital since its utter beauty mesmerize the tourist surrounded by immense climate and by mountains all around it adds cherry to the cupcake. Naina temple beside lake is the goddess of lake as said by our ancestors, the view is incredibly awesome and one can feel the presennce of peace in the environment itself. Naina lake is so beautiful surrounded by the mountains that the view from top makes it a mango which is one of the 11 points for tourist in NainitalNote-The photos are clicked personally by me including my own pics .. Have written this review because I need those 1000rs paytm prize badly. I really hope my review will make me win

Nainitaal – The Lake District of India

Nainitaal is a hill station in Uttrakhand. It is situated at a height of 1938 meters. The main attraction about Nainitaal is that The City & The Naini Lake surrounded by the mountains. It doubles the beauty of Nainitaal. It is also called as The Lake District/City of India. Its a very romantic & beautiful place.

Rendezvous with the Queen of Lakes- Nainital

The city of lakes is a must visit destination for all the nature lovers. On the first day, We went for a boat ride on a chilly morning, the view was just breath taking. Then we also visited the chandni chowk market for some budget shopping and chaat. Don't forget to buy candles as souvenirs from here. The next day we went to snow view to catch a glimpse of the snow filled himalayas and took millions of pictures of course! On our way back, we visited the Nainital zoo and enjoyed the company of wildlife. The last day we decided to trek to a nearby hill and were delighted with the view of yet another tiny lake. We also visited the tibetan market for some cool jewellery. We ended our trip by visiting the Nainital lake one last time! We sat there just chatting and having bhuttah and reminiscing our trip already!PS- Guys do make sure to visit the lake at night as well! The lights make it look really pretty!Also carry a leather jacket and gloves during winter season, it gets super chilly by the lake, specially at night.

Small and clean hill station far away from the crowd and pollution of cities.

Nainital is a small Hill station with a beautiful lake and a wonderful thandi sadak for a cool and romantic walk. The food is delicious and hotels are homely neat and clean. Living near the lake is not expensive. Resting in the boat in the middle of the lake is just breathtaking.

Naini Lake

This beautiful, stagnant pool of water in the heart of the city, is surrounded by seven majestic mountains and is a popular tourist attraction. You can enjoy row boating as well as paddle boating at the lake, while the stunning scenic surroundings please your senses.You can also walk adjacent mall road and thandi sadak to view the full lake view with beautiful views.
