While Nainital lies relatively lower in the Himalayas, it is surrounded by a number of lofty snow-capped mountains. The best way to take in this wondrous view is by taking the scenic cable car ride up to Snow View point. From here you can get a stunning 360-degree view of the snow-capped Himalayas on a clear day. Snow View is also home to a miniature park, with game and food stalls. Of all the things to do in Nainital this is perfect for photographers, writers, or anyone looking to take in the sights.
