Naina Peak (Nainital)
Naina Peak Previously Known As ‘China Peak’
“Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top, & then only you will see how low it was.”
So, guys, here I am, back again, all set to share this write-up on Naina Peak previously known as China Peak.
After reaching Nainital, the China Peak was always on my mind just to test the fitness level as the peak is situated at an altitude of 2,615m (8,579 Ft). Tanveer, my friend, stays in Nainital, so, I visit this place every year and two guys with nothing to do in the beautiful City of Nainital always steal some time to make a day’s outing plan to this peak.
Since 2008, I have visited Nainital 7 times and tried this peak for 5 times and successfully reached the top on all 5 times with my dearest friend. The feeling and sense of joy were always different after reaching the top of the peak.
So today, I would like to share a few words with you guys about this place.
Before starting, I would like to let you people know that this is the first time I saw snow fall so good in Nainital which made this adventure even more energetic and mesmerising in the lap of nature.
I am in Nainital almost every year since 2008 probably during the months of Feb or March. We are smitten by the travel bug & adore it like anything & that’s why after roaming around India when we are back, we try to observe and see the beautiful Nainital.
This Peak of Nainital provides a very panoramic birds-eye view of the town. The distance from Tallital is approximately 9 Kms and 6 Kms from Mallital to the top of China Peak. The walk from the town to reach the starting point of the trekking is so beautiful which you people must see with the help of these beautiful images & just imagine what an enchanting place we have been to!
The road to Naina Peak (China Peak) takes you to the wilderness. The Deodar and Cypress cast a different spell on you giving a bit of spooky feeling. One side of the road is the side of the mountain and another side lays the deep ditch.
This time around, because of the snowfall, the road has turned out even more dangerous and slippery but the same road during the dry season is very nice.
Whenever you reach the top of the peak you can see the beautiful town of Nainital on one side and the panoramic view of mountains on the Tibet border on the another side. It gives a 270-degree view of the Himalayan mountains range. The best part of this place is that it’s accessible only by foot, so carrying water and little food while enjoying & sitting on the top of this peak would not be a bad idea! Mind you, this peak gives a scintillating view of the Nainital town & you have to be there to experience what I am saying now!
We all live in a concrete world these days always looking to find some serenity & this place is very quiet and is indeed bliss for people who love walking & sitting alone or spending some quality time with loved ones.
What’s more, one can go for long walks, breath fresh air and enjoy the scenic beauty.
If you have some time or looking to rejuvenate yourself, this is the place to visit & recharge your energies!
Until I share my next experience with you people, enjoy the images & enjoy the nature’s beauty!
