Nainital to Naukuchiatal - Distance and Directions

The beautiful attraction of The Lake District - Nainital, is only 25 kms from this heavenly lake. To answer your questions on the condition of roads, I would say that it cant get any better on the hills. The road via Bhowali is absolutely perfect upto Bhimtal and then narrows down from there.
Please take the following route from Nainital while coming to Naukuchiatal:
From Nainital, after crossing the toll barrier, take left for Bhowali. On reaching Bhowali, take right from the main circle (roundabout) and keep going straight for about 1-1.5 kms till you see a board pointing right for Bhimtal (Its like a Right U Turn going upwards). Take that and keep following the road. You will come across a Y turn and you will have to take the road which is going down (The road going up will take you to Pandegaon, which famous for Paragliding). This will take you to Bhimtal. Upon reaching Bhimtal, ask anyone for directions to Naukuchiatal which is only 04 kms from Bhimtal.
The road from Nainital to Bhimtal is very picturesque and you could click some interesting pitures of Bhimtal Lake from the top. Enjoy!!!
