Must visit point, this gives you the best spot to view Nainital. Also if you trek or take the horse ride from barapathar - the journey is amazing through the thick forest. You will be transformed into a different world altogether.

Probably this is one of the most highest point from where you can see Nainital, a 360 degree panoramic view. I was little scare about horse riding. But it went smooth. Try this when sky is clear.

vinay s
sir, can you please tell me exact route for the trekking to Tiffin Top. As horse riding costs much and reviews aren't great so i am thinking to go on foot. How much distance it is from Naina Devi Temple and how much time it would take on foot? And it would be a great help if you would send me reference to route and its directions. thank you.

Just ask your taxi to take you to the place where all the horses are. Don't worry it's totally hassle free
