If you want to enjoy some scenic views, Tiffin Top is a good place to visit. This place can be reaches by horses but I'll recommend trekking. Best time to visit is early in the morning. View from there is quite breathtaking.

This place is just hard to describe you'll get to see the beautiful nature once you reach there. It's like you're one the clouds.

A visit to Tiffin Top offers a beautiful trek of about 4 kms. through forests of pine, oak & deodar, which stands firm breathing a peaceful silence, only to be broken now & then, by the occasional footsteps of horses carrying visitors to the top & the chirping of crickets or the distant birdsong. We trekked to the top to... More

This restaurant is located at the top of a hill and is just mind-boggling. The waiters also serve here nicely and staff is very polite

We walked from Naini Retreat hotel to Sherwood school, past Gurney House (once home to the legendary Jim Corbett), and then climbed up to Dorothy's Seat. This is not a commonly-taken route so was very peaceful though somewhat longer and steeper. We did not meet anyone on the way up! The view from the top was absolutely breath-taking especially the...

This is a tourist attraction for Nainital visitors, people prefer to go on this hill top by Horses, although one can walk. View from here is good.

Must visit place in Nainital. One can walk or can go on horse's back. It is a beautiful nature walk through the jungle. The top is known as Dorothy's seat, gives you a panoramic view of Nainital. During the season time you have lots of visitors... there are couple of restaurants serving fast food. ..

Good place for a small outing and trek. Horse rides are available to and fro but not advisable. In fact, be alert because they will try to fleece you with higher charges and also male riders have to ride the horse on their own. Best to avoid horse ride, if you don't really need to.
