   Home » Hill Station Holidays » Nainital


Surrounded by mountains on three sides Nainital is a fascinating hill-station, famously known as the 'city of 60 lakes' or 'Chakta'. The life of Nainital revolves around the lake of Naini, but there are few other lakes around Nainital which are equally beautiful and attractive as the Naini lake.

Nainital was discovered in 1841 by a Britisher called Lord Barron. The weather, the surrounding and the mesmerizing beauty of this area attracted the British administrator, who turned this place into the summer capital of the United Province. Being a major tourist place, Nainital is always bustling with visitors.

Nainital is 34 Km from Kathgodam, the gateway of Kumaon and the terminus of North Eastern Railway. It is 304 km from Delhi, capital of India, and 388 km from Lucknow the State capital.

Nainital, owing to its location, is colder than the rest of the hilly tract of Kumaon region. During monsoon, it gets heavy rainfall. The neighboring areas of Almora and Ranikhet are warmer than Nainital. Similarly humidity in Nainital is less than in other hill towns. The monthly maximum and minimum temperature of the town ranged between 28.06 degree C and 7.06 degree C.
