Nainital, famous as the Lake District of India, situated in the mountain belt of the mighty Himalayas in the midst of the Kumaon hills, is a heaven for avid nature admirers. A fine holiday destination with an affluent wealth of lakes and hills, this hill town is a place for all classes of travelers. It is named as the Tri Rishi Sarovar, or as the lake of three sages as cited in the Manas Khand section of the Skanda Purana. As stated in our prestigious history, three sages, Atri, Pulastya, and Pulaha took a break from their pilgrimage in this city to satiate their thirst. When they saw that there is no water in the place, they broke the earth and shifted some water into it from the holy lake of Tibet, Mansarovar. As a result, the well-known lake of Nainital came into being. There are some other legends associated with the emergence of the hill town too.
Leaving the history aside, the splendor of Nainital came alive during the British Reign and is still alive in today’s age of modernism. If you want to ingratiate yourself in nature and capture the marvelous environs, then Nainital is one stop destination for this that you must go to by taking a Nainital tour package that takes you around the whole hill station.
