About the City

Situated at a height of 2084m above sea level, Nainital is a famous hill destination in the kumaon region of Uttarakhand. According to the regional stories, the history of Nainital goes beyond the birth of Christ when it was under rule of khasis and was known as Khadesh. The origin story of this place is very interesting and beautiful as the place itself which states that the goddess Naini arrived here but was not able to find any water and thus decided to meditate at the sanctum of mansarover lake in Tibet and then the gods dug a crater in the earth and filled it with water and this gave birth to Nainital. Just like this story, almost every place to visit in Nainital has a mythological story associated to it which really adds to the experience.

Food and Drinks Culture
Exploring new food and drinks on a trip forms a very important part of the overall experience. Nainital has great variety of lip smacking dishes and drinks which you should definitely not mis on. Before getting on to the traditional recipes let me tell you that rice and roti forms an integral part of the cuisine here, so, don’t expect to have a totally different style of meal from the rest India. So below we have mentioned the few dishes that you can find in any local restaurant.

● Food- Baadi
It is one of the staple food in Nainital and is prepared with a mix of several dals including toor, channa and moong dal. Couple it with bhang ki chutney and you will surely love this dish.

After winters, the month of march marks the beginning of the summers in the city which ends till June. In our opinion while booking for a Nainital tour package try fix your time around the summer months as it is the best time to visit Nainital. One interesting fact about Nainital is that due to presence of lakes on its northern end, almost every afternoon it rains in this place.

While boating is most enjoyable in the peak summer months of March, April, May and June when a gentle breeze picks up and surrounds you as you come out in your rowboat, the chilly months of December and January hold a special charm for some when the snow is fresh on the banks and the nip rising from the waters tingles the spine.
