Nainital – The Heart of Kumaon – A Photolog

The New Year has started . After being one of the winners among the Ghumakkars of 2010 , I am really excited to share many more travelogues with all the fellow ghumakkars. Keeping my promise , here I am with another post , this time a photolog of the Lake District of Uttarakhand ie. Nainital. But first I must tell you that how big a ghumakkar I am. I took the printout of the Ghumakkar Badges and then I pasted one on my car’s windscreen and one on my car’s backscreen in the form of a sticker. I had pasted them from past 2 months.

Now coming back to my post. Actually in Nov’10, I went to Haldwani for some work. I boarded the Uttaranchal Sampark Kranti Exp from Delhi on 10th evening . The train reached Haldwani at 10 pm. Then I went to the hotel and then slept that night because I had to complete my work the next afternoon. I woke up the next morning at 6 am. I had free time till 12 pm. So as a true ghumakkar I decided to go to Nainital. From Haldwani , Naintal is about 30 Km. I took a taxi from Haldwani and it took about an hour to reach Nainital. I will not discuss here the history of Nainital and make you bored .There is nothing much to write because it was just a couple of hours visit. I will let you enjoy the virtual tour .

The Beautiful lake

I had only 2 hours to roam there. So, just enjoyed the beauty of Nainital. A beautiful lake along with mall road and all around sorrounded by hills. Naintal is situated at a descent altitude of 2000 m approx. A peaceful , serene place nestled with natural beauty.

After roaming around there my short trip to Nainital ended and I came back to Haldwani. The roads from Nanital to Haldwani were good except a little patch which was under construction. After completing my work I took a bus and came back to Delhi that night.

Finally Remembering the beautiful lake.

Thanks :-)
