A vast crescent-shaped stretch of emerald-blue waters, the Naini Lake is one of the major attractions of the hill station. A picturesque spot, it is  surrounded by seven hills that are mirrored in its blue waters, giving it a greenish hue. Lush forests of tall oak trees fringe this freshwater lake that lies at the foothills of the Great Himalayas. The Naini Lake has been divided into two sections: the northern part is called Mallital and the southern is known as Tallital. People come here to enjoy picnics or simply sit back and let the serene natural surroundings take away their stress. The lake is a major boating site and on most days, you can see its surface dotted with colourful pedal boats, row boats and yachts that are an ideal means to explore its pristine beauty. For an immersive experience, tourists can rent several hotels and homestays that flank the lake. Wake up to a glorious sunrise and the see the mist-shrouded lake echo with the calls of various birds that find shelter here. The best time to visit the lake is during the annual boat riding festival. Another attraction is the Naini Temple located on its shores.
