Nainital

Location

Nainital is one of North India's most popular and famous hill stations. It is called the lake district of Uttarakhand.

History

Nainital was founded in 1841 by a European merchant and hunting enthusiast. In time it became the summer capital of the who's who of North India. In ancient times, the region was called Khasdesh and the Khasis ruled it. In 1880, Nainital suffered drastically due to two days of torrential downpour. Landslides crushed houses and created what is now called the Flats, tourist spot. But in the days of the Raj, it became the summer headquarters of the colonial administration and a popular retreat. Many schools, barracks etc. were opened here which till date evoke aspiration.

Attractions

Nainital has long been the favoured hill station for North Indians. This is not just because of its natural beauty but also due to the large number of activities available. Unlike other hill stations where usually one can just relax, read and go on walks here one can go sailing, boating, golfing, horse riding, try day tours and much more. It is a perfect place for families with lots of options for everyone and this adds to its traffic during summer vacations. Read more
