Nothing like Trekking

The stunning Naina Peak, which is the highest hilltop, is something every tourist likes to cover and guess what, it is merely 20 minutes from Manu Maharani Hotel. Trek your way through lush green forests to reach the top, which is about 8,579 feet above sea level, from where you will get a bird’s eye view of the Nainital town. And what’s amazing is that you will realise Lake Naini is actually shaped like a mango. You also witness the Nandan Devi Peak and the mountains along the Tibet border. In case, you are not up to trekking, you can hire a cab.

A High Altitude Zoo

Have you ever climbed up a hill to see a tiger or a bear? Well, at Nainital Zoo, you can do just that. At a distance of 1.2 km from Manu Maharani Hotel and at about 2100 meters above sea level stands the only zoo in Uttarakhand, home to numerous endangered species. All these animals are either adopted by animal organizations or people. Hire a cab to reach a certain point, from where you can avail shuttle service or choose to walk. Once you reach the zoo, there is no choice but to walk and admire the animals. A caution for the weak hearted – the walk can get slightly strenuous.
