Nainital has everything that takes to make a touristy place. The eye-shaped lake (most people consider it is an eye-shaped lake but many say it is in the shape of a bean) is the centre of all the activities in the city and it is not a surprise that there is a view of the lake from most of the houses and hotels in Nainital. Boating over its quiet waters is also an experience of a lifetime. A kilometer and a half promenade called Mall Road gives a good run to the Naini Lake. Divided into two parts, Mall Road bustles with arrayed shops and hotels. It comes to life in the evenings when the tourists and locals decide to take a walk on it. The smell of corn and coffee and the crowd of assorted people make it one of the best places to see in Nainital. The two ends of the Mall Road are distinguished as Tallital (Tail of the Lake) and Mallital (Head of the Lake), where Tallital welcomes the new visitor with a wide angle view of the sparkling lake, surrounding mountains, colonial-era buildings and the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, Mallital entertains the guests with multiple eating joints serving delicious Momos; hotels with lake view; Tibetan Market selling trendy clothes, Bada Bazaar that has a rich collection of locally manufactured candles; a playground in the form of ‘The Flats’ and a ropeway.
