The Corbett tour package booking combined with Nainital sightseeing is going to be an absolutely fun-filled break away from the metro life of Delhi.

Begin your road trip from Delhi and mark Nainital as your first destination. Via NH 9, the distance is approximately 336 km, which might take up to 3 hours and 35 minutes to reach Nainital. It will be a smart act to do a prior booking to a hotel or resort. If you start early you will reach Nainital by the afternoon. Check in to your hotel or resort to have lunch and relax for some time. In the evening stroll on the mall road near the Nainital Lake. There are multiple shops and eateries on the mall road. If you are with your partner or friends then definitely try some snacks in the cafe. If you are with your family or kids then it’s a must to shop for souvenirs. Also, you can sit by the lakeside or indulge in boating in the evening. The Naina Devi Temple is also located on one side of the Nainital Lake.

The next day pump yourself for sightseeing for the entire day. Start with Tiffin Top, also known as Dorothy’s Seat, and then head towards Eco Cave Gardens, Naina Peak, Snow View Point and the Raj Bhawan (the Governor’s House). In the evening either relax in your hotel or spend time on the mall road.


On the third day visit the High Altitude Nainital Zoo and after that check out from the hotel and head towards Jim Corbett. The transfer from nature to wildlife will take approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. Reaching there by afternoon, check in to your resort and have lunch. Thereafter, head towards the jungle for the evening safari. Make sure you have pre-booked your seats for the safari. Both Jeep and Canter safari options are available at Jim Corbett National Park. Tigers are the prime attraction of the forest safari and there are six different zones for the same. The quietude in the green woods with the persistent hope of spotting tigers or other animals will give you goose bumps. After the safari return back to your hotel and you can relax or spend some me-time in your room.

On day 4, the final day of your holidays, get up early in the morning to go for the morning safari. Returning from the safari, you can go for sightseeing such as Garija Temple and Corbett Museum. Return back to the resort and check out from there.

It’s time to get back to the daily life in Delhi.
