Visit Naini Lake

Encompassed by seven majestic mountains and cuddled in the lap of nature is the beautiful lake of Nainital. The Naina Lake is sheathed with a mythological backing and is believed to be the place where the eye of Sati had fallen, once Vishnu had chopped-up her body into numerous parts, to save the world from the clutches and anger of Lord Shiva.
