Nainital apparently became popular due to the British finding it reminded them of the Lake District. It certainly reminded us of the Lakes when we stepped off the bus into the first rain we'd experienced since our arrival! The setting is fantastic, it's at 2000m with a lake spilling out of it's hanging valley, surrounded by woodland. Having said this it has become a very busy domestic holiday destination and so the fun fare, candy-floss and constant request for (rowing) boat rides wore us a little thin sometimes. We did spot our first Tiger at last; however it was behind bars at the high altitude zoo which contained a mixture of animals, most of which we'd seen in the wild at Corbett Reserve but also include was an incredible (albeit unhappy) Snow Leopard. The rain occasionally gave way to sun and we ate cornetto's and joined the honeymooning indian couple for a bit of pedallo action on the lake. One of Hannah's main plus points about Nainital was the fact that they served hot chocolate in pots at every restaurant! It was a nice few days and our last in the Indian Himalayas. We left on a night bus to Delhi which proved to be much more comfortable than we imagined and was one of the easiest 10 hour coach journeys yet.
