Maybe next time during winter season I will try to visit Nainital again. As per experience close to rainy season Himalaya Darshan(view) is not possible but yes, at the same time visiting Naintal after few showers is lovely to watch, lovely to roam around.

  • Lariya Kanta – 2485
  • Camels Back – 2422
  • Hanumangarhi – 1950
