Travel Blawghhing – Nainital,city of lakes

, ,

The first trip of the Blawghhers together in India. And we chose the most secluded stretch of India to travel to – Nainital, Ranikhet, Almora, and Kausani in Uttaranchal. This one particularly not frequented by many tourists – at least that is what we were told but in India, it is hardly possible now to go anywhere and not find crowds.

But since the idea was to travel and explore on our own, the trip was charted as per the destinations we wished to visit and stay at as per our convenience. We refused to be lobbied around in buses / private vehicles as other “honey – mooners” with the days and nights planned much beforehand and strictly followed :).

In the adjoining picture what you see are the most pristine waters of Uttaranchal – the Saat Tal lake made up of literally 7 lakes intertwined.

The seven Lakes Of Sattal are
Panna Tal or Garud Tal
Nal-Damyanti Tal
Purna Tal
Sita Tal
Ram Tal
Laxman Tal
Sukha Tal or Khurdariya Tal

Breathtaking scenery and snake pass roads makes for a pleasant journey but not so delightful for those with a light stomach 🙂

The typical dhabas serving rajma, parathas and dal fry rice are some of the places which are a must visit for those who want to eat some local cuisine. Of course, the 3,4 and 5-star hotels have infiltrated the region and for ones particular about diet and food there are various multi-cuisine diners available.

With the well spent 14 days, we also managed to make it to the Jim Corbett National Park, only for a day though.

More travel stories coming soon…
