It is a must-visit for couples as well as friend groups.
One can capture the landscape from many angles, while on a trek to Naina Peak. Apart from trekking, people also reach the summit of the mountain with the help of a pony-ride. About 3 kilometres from the base of the peak is Tanke Band, which is the nearest taxi stand. One can indulge in a photography session of nature and snowclad mountain views during the day and the immensely beautiful cityline of Nainital at night.
