Snow View Point in Nainital
At a distance of 3 km from Tallital Bus Stand and 2 km from Nainital Lake, Snow View Point is one of the most attractive places in Nainital and also between the most visited Nainital sightseer places.
To be found at an altitude of 2,270 m, Snow view point offers outstanding visions of snowcapped mountains like Nanda Devi, Trishul and Nanda Kot. It also offers great visions of Nainital Lake and the town. Snow view point is well linked by road but a ride in Aerial Ropeway from Mallital is the best path to reach this place.
In order to offer an ideal vision to visitors, a pair of giant binoculars is installed at this spot. A small temple housing images of Rama, Sita, Lakshman, Hanuman with Durga and Shiva is positioned on the peak. The Tibetan monastery Gadhan Kunkyop Ling Gompa of the Gelukpa order placed near Snow view point is also a must visit spot. An early daybreak trek to this place gives some of the best visions of the great Himalayan ranges. A main attraction for the kids is an amusement park that has lately opened up here. The stalls at Snow View Point supply tea and some snacks.
