I believe that travelling rejuvenates both our body and mind..A break from our monotonous routine life gives us strength to move on in life..I love to travel and there are some places which attract us with its beauty and makes us to wish that we have to revisit that place again and enjoy a lot..
I am now reminded of our tour to Nainital in June 2016..I feel that it is #TimeToRevisit Nainital again..
We were planning for a short trip for 4 days last year and started looking for hill stations outside Tamilnadu..We finally zeroed in Nainital and booked a 3 nights 4 days package with Make my trip covering both Nainital and Corbett.
This tour was special for us and we were excited because:
- We visited North India for the first time
- We were first time flyers – from Chennai to New Delhi and vice versa
- I was able to test my Hindi speaking skills..Though I understand Hindi and watch movies, I haven’t got more chances in Chennai to speak in Hindi..I was thrilled as I have to translate to my husband as he doesn’t know the language..
We were picked by a driver at New Delhi airport and after having breakfast at Hotel Saravana Bhavan in Delhi, we started our six hour journey to Nainital.
We were excited as we are going to cross Delhi, Noida in Uttarpradesh state and finally reach Nainital in Uttarkhand state..
After having lunch at Bikanerwala hotel at Gajraula,we travelled through national highways and finally started climbing hills..
Photos that I clicked from car while traveling:
We reached Nainital around 5’o clock in evening and we stayed in Bhavanipur Greens, a Sterling Holidays resort..We travelled for half an hour to reach this resort from Nainital..We were happy as the scenic view was awesome and our room was good and we had a nice balcony and view from it was so mesmerizing:
We bought some candles from Uttarkhand Government shop which had candles, handicrafts and organic sarees..After dinner in our resort, we went for a walk around hotel and finally slept.
We started our sightseeing around 9’o clock and we visited Bara Pathar – We enjoyed horse riding for around 1.5 hours up the hills and saw Tiffin top (Dorothy’s seat), Naina Peak, Suicide point,etc..
Then we went to Eco cave gardens – The place was very cool and beautiful..
We visited the famous Naina devi temple, which was very beautiful and also crowded..
We saw a nice view of Nainital lake from temple and we skipped boating as we weren’t interested..
We roamed around the famous mall road and had lunch at Chandni Chowk hotel..Then we shopped in Mall road and purchased candles and other items..We had dinner in our hotel and our day 2 of the tour got over..
We checked out of hotel in Nainital and started our journey to Jim Corbett National Park..
On our way, we saw a hill view point, Khurpa Taal, a lake which changes colour according to season and also a small waterfall which was beautiful..
We reached Corbett and after lunch, we hired a jeep for our 3.5 hours Jeep safari..Though we saw only deers, monkeys and no tigers, journey inside a dense forest was awesome..
We visited a 100 years old Site devi temple and finally reached Corbet – Treetop Riverview, a Sterling Holidays resort which is around 20 km away from Corbett and is located in a hill..Room was nice with all facilities.. After dinner, we took rest..
We checked out of our hotel and started our journey to New Delhi..On the way, we visited Corbett Museum..
We reached Delhi airport and came back to Chennai finally..
I would like to revisit Nainital for its mesmerizing nature..Though it is crowded, I enjoyed a lot..We stayed in hotel away from busy Mall road and we enjoyed a lot..
Though our Vacation was a short one, I am sure it is a memorable and a special vacation for us and I would like to revisit Nainital again.
