A small town in the hills of Kumaon, Nainital is a lovely hill station surrounded by mountains on three sides. Once this area had many lakes it was called the City of 60 lakes or 'Chakta'.
Most of the lakes in the region have disappeared and whatever remains is just a glimpse of what they might have been in the past. Today the life of Nainital revolves around the lake of Naini. But there are few other lakes around Nainital which are equally beautiful and attractive as the Nainilake.
River Ramganga originates from the DoodhaTauli ranges in district PauriGarhwal. It enters into district Nainital, before re-entering into district PauriGarhwal.
Nainital was discovered in 1841 by a Britisher called Lord Barron. The weather, the surrounding and the mesmerizing beauty of this area attracted the British administrator who turned Nainital into the summer Capital of the United Province. Being a major tourist place Nainital is always bustling with visitors and it is always better if accommodation and other facilities are prearranged.
Apart from the 500m broad and 2.4km long Naini Lake, Nainital is famous for its residential educational institutions such as St Mary’s Convent, St Joseph’s College, Sherwood College and Believed to be some of the premier institutions in India, these schools are closed during winter, when it snows heavily. However, there is nothing much that is architecturally outstanding in Nainital, apart from colonial mansions. The Boat Club in Mallital on the northern end of the lake, was established in 1890 as the Nainital Club. The Club offers temporary membership that allows members to use its spacious lounge and bar, and arranges for boat rides on the lake.
