Nainital, Uttaranchal, India


Founded by the British in 1841, Nainital, at 1,934 m above sea level, is a popular resort in the Shivalik Range. Surrounded by forested hills, the town is set around the Naini lake, which is said to be one of the emerald green eyes of Shiva's wife, Sati. The largest town in Kumaon region (others include Ranikhet, Almora, and Kausani), Nainital is the erstwhile summer capital of Uttar Pradesh. A disastrous landslide in 1880 created the area now known as the Flats.  [- Jun 05]
