Just 10 kilometres from the main city lies the surreal and beautiful hamlet of Khurpatal. An ideal spot for nature lovers, this charming village is known for its clean air, pleasant climate, and untouched nature. It’s also home to a beautiful emerald lake that no Instagram filter can improve. The lake is also a good place to go fishing, if you’re the kind who finds peace around water. Khurpatal is easily accessible by road and is one of the best places to visit in Nainital to get away from the vacationing crowd.
