Feel the Charismatic Saga of Nature During Nainital Tour
I don’t known from where to begin my experience about my Nainital Tour because everything was unplanned. This two days holiday tour began from a phone call from my friend on Friday evening while I was returning to home from my office. The whole tour plan was discussed on phone. Though I was also interested and excited regrading this backpacker journey yet I finally decided regrading this tour with some apprehension.
We hired a taxi on Friday night after taking dinner and reached Nainital next morning. Nainital is one of the most charismatic hill stations in India. This city is called as the ‘Lake District’ of India’ because it is dotted with five lakes Naini, Bhimtal, Naukuchiatal, Khurpatal and Sattal. The unending expanse of scenic beauty summons scores of national as well as international tourists to this place from across the world.
The night journey was memorable because we hadn’t slept and keep on gossiping on various things related to our past, present and future life. Next morning when we reached Nainital we felt sleepy but the scenic charm of natural splendour and engrossing atmosphere refreshes us. After taking refreshment at hotel we moved to explore scenic charm and various tourists attractions of this place.
Nainital is a renowned hill resort of India which is visited by scores of foreign tourists during their India travel. This mesmerizing destination is located at an altitude of 1,938 meters above sea level which derives its name from the Naini Lake. The Naina Devi Temple situated at the end of the lake is one of the 64 Shakti Peethas in India. According to Indian mythology it is the place where Sati’s eyes (or Nain) fell down after which it came to be called as Nain-tal or lake of the eye.
