Hi guys, today I‘ll share my experience of my trip to Nainital, which I am so excited to tell for to reasons. 1-how the kind behaviour of people we met, made our trip, (how you can make a difference by being kind) 2- if you want to go to Nainital, here is some experience. If you are from this area or anywhere, just take some escape from the routine and enjoy the weekend in the lap of nature. It feels wonderful, trust me.
At 6pm: This is the ticket, tomorrow morning we are going to Nanital. This is how it started
So we had our reservation in Shatabdi from GZB station at 6:45, did a cab to go there, the driver bid us a happy journey.
on the train, our seats r at 3 different places we, could have arranged it anyways, but an uncle did that for us, that was a kind gesture.
it took us almost 5-6 hours to reach katgodam, the nearest station to Nainital. From there we did a cab, he took Rs 500, we were at Nainital by 2 PM. the weather was freezing
There we looked for a hotel, didn’t go for the online ones because we wanted to see and confirm, so we actually went for a hotel hunt, saw 5 to 6 hotels, in this hunt a person(who are appointed by hotels to get tourist) accompanied us and then we decided to stay at hotel Ahuja, it as a nice hotel, offering a safe atmosphere. That day we did boating, sat near the lake with tea, enjoying the mesmerising beauty of lake and mountain, went to Naina Devi temple, and a gurudwara bought the famous candles and chocolates. for the rest of the day, we sauntered down the street, peacefully savoring the beauty of Nainital. then had food in a restaurant there, and went to sleep.
The next day, we woke at 7, got ready, did breakfast and went for the local sightseeing by cab, he took 2000 Rs, and drove us to some very beautiful places- we saw snow, there I fell on snow but unhurt. then saw the Himalayas covered in snow, some trekking people, waterfall, Khurpa lake- lake made by people with khurpa, lovers point, a temple and an ashram – neeb kauri ashram it was very peaceful. then he took us to Bhim Taal where we earlier thought to stay for the night but as advised against this by the hotel owner and our driver as the place is very quiet, there we saw ducks, did boating again and clicked photos and then he dropped us back to katgodam, ensured that we are safe and then he went, the driver as kind & helpful. We stayed in katgodam for the night and in the morning we had a train, and back to Delhi by 3.
This as my first trip like that, like all girls and unplanned, but I enjoyed it, a lot. Som credit goes to the people and their values. they justified the Indian principle- ATITHI DEVO BHAVA (guest is god). However met an ill-mannered person as well but at the end of the day what matters is – what you want to choose, what you want to be.
PS planning to go to Rajasthan next month. 🙂
PS2 if you want to go to Nainital and have financial issues go in offseason. my trip cost 3.5k per head
