The waterfalls of Nainital

This is another article from Nainitaltalks, this article is about the waterfalls of Nainital. By Waterfalls of Nainital I mean waterfalls from the local area of Nainital. I’m not writing about the Bhalugaar waterfall, Corbett waterfall or about the Dhokaney waterfall of Nainital.

Nainital is obviously a name that’s famous for its heavenly lake and the godly hills around.But that’s not all it has got.There’s more to this place to discover. Deep in the woods, under the serene sky falls the beauty from not so high but high enough to arouse the zest for life.

Not so far from the main town lies the snow view point from where one can witness the almighty Himalayas. And that’s where our journey starts. From here we head towards a distant village named Dunikhal. Though Dunikhal too is a camping site (a.k.a. the Chaukhamba Camps) but that’s not our destination. The Waterfalls lie in the forest that is spread between Nanital and Dunikhal.

After descending into the forest we find a brook rushing downwards, this brook not only accompanies us in the journey but also hosts all the three waterfalls that lie in this part of the jungle. This is an off road trek as well as less known to people which makes this a perfect place to find peace, but this serenity comes at a cost.

We don’t have tour guides or any kind of maps to reach there. The only way one can reach there is by taking help of the local residents at the Snow View point learning about the path for Dunikhal from them. Thanks to the gods, this path has no intersection or bisection, it is a single piece pavement from Nainital to Dunikhal which prevents anyone from deviating.

There are other waterfalls too in this area but these are dangerous to visit so better is to look for waterfalls on the opposite side of the valley…i.e. The valley that lies near Pangot (yet another camping site located 10km from Nainital). Will shortly write about the Pangot travel guide.
