About Naukuchiatal

A lake of nine corners, Naukuchiatal, can fool you into believing that you are the only one here. Lush green surroundings and captivating mountains loom large over it from a distance. You can take a peaceful walk around the lake. If boating is on your itinerary, try it in the early morning hours to feel the real magic of this attraction near Nainital. You can even rest your boat by the edge to have a small picnic. For those who love adventure activities, can indulge in paragliding, kayaking, aqua ball, rock climbing and rappelling. The launch pad for paragliding is only at a few minutes distance from Naukuchiayatal.

Historical Context: According to a local legend, anyone who can see the nine corners of Naukuchiyatal all at once finds his/her way to heaven. Given the enormity of the lake, it is almost impossible. However, while taking the walks over the hills that cradle the lake, there is a slight chance that one might see all seven corners at once.
