New Year in Naukuchiatal

Actually it rained quite a bit this season and I am glad Winters are coming to Naukuchiatal :) Its going to be cold and I am looking forward to some bonfire sessions by the lake.

The weather is going to be simply awesome and it will be pleasant throughout the day. The nights will be long and COLD...But dont worry, its not going to be sub-zero like in neighbouring areas of Nainital and Ranikhet. Paragliding enthusiasts...Get ready, this is the best time to visit Naukuchiatal. From Nov - Mar, Naukuchiatal will be simply full of life during this festive time of the year.

Since the New Year is not falling on a weekend, Lake Resort is offering lowest rates in the entire region during Dec 20 - Jan 02. The Package Rate of Rs. 8,999/- per couple for 2 Nights (Dec 30 and 31) is not only an incredible deal considering the fact that most of the resorts will be priced around 15 - 20k but also includes all meals, snacks, music, etc. Regular rates will apply from Dec 20 - Dec 29.

So guys, get ready for some great fun in Naukuchiatal starting November. If you want to book the New Year package, it is highly advised that you book well in advance.

Nainital to Naukuchiatal - Distance and Directions

The beautiful attraction of The Lake District - Nainital, is only 25 kms from this heavenly lake. To answer your questions on the condition of roads, I would say that it cant get any better on the hills. The road via Bhowali is absolutely perfect upto Bhimtal and then narrows down from there.
Please take the following route from Nainital while coming to Naukuchiatal:
From Nainital, after crossing the toll barrier, take left for Bhowali. On reaching Bhowali, take right from the main circle (roundabout) and keep going straight for about 1-1.5 kms till you see a board pointing right for Bhimtal (Its like a Right U Turn going upwards). Take that and keep following the road. You will come across a Y turn and you will have to take the road which is going down (The road going up will take you to Pandegaon, which famous for Paragliding). This will take you to Bhimtal. Upon reaching Bhimtal, ask anyone for directions to Naukuchiatal which is only 04 kms from Bhimtal.
The road from Nainital to Bhimtal is very picturesque and you could click some interesting pitures of Bhimtal Lake from the top. Enjoy!!!
