Nature is at her best at the hill stations. One can enjoy the beauty of rivers, pools, mountains, valleys, trees and plants. The air there is so cool and fresh. Hill stations provide a short welcome change from dull and daily routine of town and city life.

Those people are lucky who can afford some days at a hill station in the lap of nature.

India has many beautiful and famous hill stations. Thousands of people from India and abroad visit these hill stations every year. Last year, when my school closed for summer vacation, I left for Nainital with my father, mother and sister. We packed our woollens, umbrella, raincoats, etc., and boarded the train for Kathgodam. There we took a U.P. Roadways bus and reached Nainital.

We had made advance reservation for our stay at the Hotel. This hotel gave a fine view of the lake and mountains. At night it rained and it becomes very cold. But in the morning the sky was all clear. After breakfast we visited the Naini Peak and the China Peak. We spend a greater part of the day in the hotel. We enjoyed boating in the lake. We did some shopping in the market. We visited all other places in the town. Bhimtal and Bhowali are the two picnic spots. We enjoyed picnic and bathing in the sun on the bank of the lake. Sometimes, we sat in the balcony. It was a very exciting experience. We felt as if we were in a fairy land. The weather at Nainital changes rather suddenly.


We had taken many photographs of the beautiful scenes. After two days we came back to Delhi.
