The path starts from right side of the road behind the football ground/mosque. Half the way you will find houses, human beings and... More

this is probably a very disappointing experience in nainital. you want to go to tiffin top however, the only way to get there is on a horse and the horse ride costs you 700 per head, not worth it.

To reach at Tiffin top you must go through horse ride which is most thrilling experience due to small & hilly road made of stones. It is top station from you can see awesome view of nainital.

tiffin top is the topmost site where we can saw all the nainital area..But it is worst to ride up to their if the climate was cloudy because nothing can be seen from there. U can go there by Horse or can walk we choose walk and our decision was fruitful.

After a 4kms horse ride we can reach the place where we can get the complete view of the Nainital lake. The horse riding itself was really a different experience to us. The view at the top was beyond the words.

This is a view point of Nainital. You need to trek for around 3 kms to reach the view point. For people who are not ready to trek, there is another adventurous option of taking a horse ride to the top.
