[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a beautiful scene we drove through enroute to Nainital. When you look at the rows of trees in the valley, you actually see rows of different shades of green and light maroon. I tried my best to highlight that in the photo, as the sun was too bright.

Nainital - Location

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 and it was called the City of 60 lakes or 'Chakta'.Nainital is located in the state of Uttaranchal and is about 277 kilometres from Delhi. Hill Resorts in India outlines the important information on Nainital.

Nainital - History

During the times of the Raj, Nainital was an idyllic refuge of the Britishers, who used to visit Nainital to escape from the heat and dust of the plains. The name 'Nainital' has been derived from two words 'Naini' means 'eyes' and 'taal' means lake. The word 'Naini' comes from the temple of the Naina Devi, that is located above the lake.
