About Naina Peak

The highest peak in Nainital, Naina Peak pose a challenge to most avid trekkers. Popularly known as China Peak, it is situated 2615 metres above sea level. The way to this peak leads through a vivacious forest teeming with beautiful cypresses, deodars and rhododendron trees. You can get a splendid view of the town, the Himalayas and a bird's eye view of the Terrai region from this attraction near Nainital. The high altitude, lush green surroundings and unscathed expanse of Naina Peak attract travellers. It can be reached by hiring a pony from Mallital or Snow View point as well.

Historical Context: According to an urban legend, it was said that you can see the Great Wall of China from China peak. You certainly cannot but the name of this peak seems to be derived from this fact. The peak gets its other name from a sadhu by the name of Cheena, who once lived here.
