Nainital -The perfect honeymoon paradise

Natural beauty abounds in the state of Uttaranchal

India, May 4 (Uitv) -Nainital is a Himalayan resort town in the Kumaon region of India’s Uttarakhand state, at an elevation of roughly 2,000m. Formerly a British hill station, it’s set around Nainital Lake, a popular boating site with Naina Devi Hindu Temple on its north shore.

A cable car runs to Snow View observation point (at 2,270m), with vistas over the town and mountains including Nanda Devi, Uttarakhand’s highest peak.

It is believed that the Naini Lake is one of the 64 Shakti Peeths, or religious sites where parts of the charred body of Sati (Parvati) fell on earth while being carried by Lord Shiva. 

The spot where Sati's eyes (or Nain) fell, came to be called Nain-tal or lake of the eye. The goddess Shakti is worshiped at the Naina Devi Temple, known by locals as Naini Mata Temple on the north shore of the present-day lake.

Nainital with its beautiful lakes, temples and exotic scenery around is the perfect honeymoon paradise nestled in the arms of Kumaon Hills with an air which is refreshing and carries a subtle charm.

Nainital has earned the epithet of ' Lake District ' of India

Blessed with its own scenic lake, Nainital is a hill station surrounded by the peaks of Kumaon Hills and is full of natural hot water springs. Nainital is divided into two parts, Tallital and Mallital, with the lake separating them.

Tallital is the southern side of the lake, while Mallital consists of the northern upper reaches. It is also known as the Lake District of Uttarakhand and is named after Goddess Naina Devi.
