Tiffin Top Nainital

A 4 km walk west of the lake brings you to Tiffin Top. It is very famous among places to visit in Nainital. On the edge of 7520 ft (2290 meters) on top Ayarpatta region. It is also called Dorothy's seat.

Dorothy's Seat was constructed by British Army Officer Col J.P. Kellett in the memories of his wife Dorothy Kellett whom he lost in a terrible plane crash along with his 4 children. They were hidden in the Red Sea in 1936.

Missing Tiffin Top from your journey of Nainital would be an offense. One can reach here through a stunning trek of 4 km through opaque forest, or one can select for a horse ride from the horse Stand. Dorothy's seat is the last point of the Horse Ride. The magnificently tranquil spot bounded by Cher, Oak and Deodar trees. Once you reach Tiffin top, you would be greeted by charming panoramic vision of the Kumaun hills and of course the Naini Lake.

On clearer days you can get a vision of the royal Himalayas, which includes twin peaks of Nanda Devi. The peak has the same name as the Goddess of the area since it too is regarded as one more form of Goddess. The west summit is higher while the east summit is called Nanda Devi East. Nanda Devi East also has another name, one that of a younger sister of Nanda Devi, Goddess Sunanda.

Tiffin Top as the name propose is a pre-packed dine but there might be no need for that there are plentiful of facilities available, where you can buy tea, coffee, noodles etc.
