Tourists who visit Nainital, usually come to see the nine lakes and watch the view of snow peaked Himalayan mountains.
The excitement of watching the Himalayas with the help of binoculars and telescopes is increasing every day.
“This place is very beautiful. We are standing almost at the top of this mountain. We saw snow peaked mountains of Himalayas from this height which I think would be the China border. Also I saw temples situated on the other mountain peaks taken over by the Army and trees in the figures of tiger. This place is totally pollution free which is very rare in Mumbai,” said Namita, a tourist from Mumbai.
The tourist guides are also pleased to see the increasing enthusiasm among the tourists to view the Himalayas.

Naina Peak also known as China or ”Cheena Peak” is the highest peak. From atop the peak, one can not only see a broad swath of the snow clad high Himalayas, but also obtain a panoramic view of Nainital town itself.
”Cheena Peak” is the highest mountain in Nainital, which is about 2295 meters above the sea level. Tourists climb up almost three kilometers to catch glimpse of Himalayan Mountains. (ANI)
