The nucleus of Nainital’s exquisite beauty is beautiful lake. In the day ,mirrored in its waters stand seven proud hills,dotted with pretty cottages and villas. This reflection alone holds one spell bound. More beautiful than this however is the lake at night when the myriads of bulbs from the hill sides and quite a large number hanging near the lake’s edge stab their magic light into its waters. The lake offers the holiday makers ample opportunity for yachting, boating or paddling the boat. Boating rates for conventional rowing boats or Paddle boats are displayed on pre-paid booths at different places along lake side. Rowing as well as paddle boats are available at both ends of lake.
