About Tiffin Top

Trekking is fun and easy when you are in Nainital. Climb just 4 Km from the town to reach Tiffin Top, which is a favourite picnic spot for many tourists visiting this place. Meant only for pedestrians, the way uphill crawls in a zigzag manner adding to the excitement. You can also hire a pony/horse to take you to the destination. Also known as Dorothy's Seat; it is one of the best sightseeing spots in Nainital that gives you a 360-degree view of the city. You can see the magnificent hills of Kumaon from this point while soaking in the beauty and peace of its ambience.

Historical Context: A British Army Officer Col. J.P Kellet built Tiffin Top in the memory of his wife, Dorothy Kellet. That is why the spot is also called Dorothy's Seat. She died of Septicaemia aboard a ship bound for England. She was buried at The Red Sea in 1936.
