We decided to kick-start traveling with Nainital. I was keen to fulfill the dream promised by Outlook Traveller – riding a horse on the bridle path to Dorothy’s Seat. Apparently, it’s called Tiffin Top because people hang out there for picnics. As the name suggests, it’s situated at quite a height ( 7,520 ft), offering the entire view of the town of Nainital.
Although I was jittery to ride on a horse, it set in me a determination to experience something new and memorable. My horse’s name was Badal. It was a very sweet, humble and obedient horse. Finally we were off to Dorothy’s seat, enjoying the dense deodar and pine trees around, early summer warmth and quietude of nature.

As we reached the top, we were amazed to find beautiful views spread all over – Nainital is truly picturesque. I must say that it’s underrated as a destination. It has got much more to surprise than we can possibly think of. If you are looking for an ‘abandoning’ holiday - a time when you just want to be yourself and do whatever you feel like, Nainital is sure to fulfill that for you.
My dream came true – I could actually do what I read in a magazine! Have you ever got inspired by a travel magazine or a travel show, and actually did exactly what you read or saw?
