Nainital is a lake resort set at a height of 1938 m in a beautiful world valley. Surrounded by seven hills, the sparkling waters of a natural lake make it a gem among hill resorts. Legend has it that the lake was formed when the goddess Sati lost her eyes at this spot. She was being carried by Lord Shiva at the time and a lake was formed as a result. Naina (Eyes) ‘Tal’ (Lake) was thus given its name.
