THIS IS AN INCOMPLETE ARTICLE. Will add text and pictures soon…

Uttarakhand has several wonderful touristy spots. Among them Nainital certainly tops the list. Apart from the beautiful Naini Lake, one can enjoy shopping on Mall Road, polishing your bargaining skills @ Tibetian Market or buying exquisite Wax candles besides other items there. The nearest railhead is Katgodam & the nearest airport is Pantnagar. Nainital Peak is the highest point. You can also enjoy boating on Naini Lake, and cable ride for an aerial view of Nainital.

About 100 kms from Nainital is Bhimtal. Besides the beautiful lake, there is Bhimbisara temple. Legend has it that it was made by Bhim during the Pandava exile, when Bhim had spent some time around this place. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva.

One can go to Ranikhet from Bhimtal. An attraction in the town is the Jhula Devi Mandir dedicated to Ma Durga. It is said that Ma Durga appeared in a dream to one of Her devotees & he had erected the temple. Ma Durga reappeared in the dreams of another devotee longing to play on a swing, and thereafter Ma Durga was placed on a swing in this temple.

Gir National Park where Asiatic lion roam freely is in the vicinity of Ranikhet.

  • mystic wanderer: Third Front would be disaster, and UPA (again) would be a severe step backward. BJP/NDA led by Modi seems the only worthwhile choice.
  • WB: You're very welcome.
