Snow View Point, Nainital Overview

Snow View Point in Nainital stands at a dizzying altitude of 2270 meters above sea level and is one of the most attractive tourist spots of the area. As the name suggests, Snow View Point offers a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas draped in a blanket of milky-white snow. One can see a picturesque view of all three important peaks- Nanda Devi, Trishul and Nanda Kot peaks together from this point.

A huge pair of binoculars has been installed at the Snow View Point that allows you to take a closer look at the Himalayan range and its magical peaks. If you look closer, you will find a small temple housing the images of Ram, Sita, Laxman, Hanuman with Durga and Shiva. An aerial cable car connects you to the Snow View Point directly from the Mall Road of Mallital and shows you a spectacular view of the beautiful town.

Apart from being mesmerised by the spectacular view of the Snow View Point, you can also indulge in some fun activities around the area.

The guns are loaded with empty bullet shells, and for INR 30, you get 6 chances to shoot at targets that have been hung up near and far. Other arcades and fair games for children have been installed too where they can enjoy and win different types of toys and goodies. An empty ground is flanked with shops that sell instant Maggi noodles of different types and flavours, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, candy floss, etc. Lounging on the benches and enjoying these small eats will go a long way in lifting your spirits.
