snow view point nainital
Snow View Point in Nainital stands at a dizzying altitude of 2270 meters above sea level and is hands down, one of the most attractive tourist spots of the area. As the name suggests, Snow View Point offers a panoramic view of the mighty Himalayas draped in a blanket of milk-white snow. Enveloped in cotton clouds, the peaks of these mountains ranges pierce the sky and are enlightened with shafts of sun rays that make the snow sparkle with joy. A single glance at the mesmerising Himalayas is sure to lift your spirits as nothing else will. One can see a picturesque view of all three important peaks- Nanda Devi, Trishul and Nanda Kot peaks together from this point. Known as the daughter of the Himalayas, Nanda Devi (7816 m) is a two-peaked massif- eastern summit Sunanda and western summit Nanda, and is the second highest peak in India. The Trishul peak (7120 m) is the highest of a group of three mountain peaks that resemble the structure of a trident and hence, is named so. The Nanda Kot peak (6861 m) means Nanda's fortress. According to ancient Hindu scriptures, Goddess Parvati has made her sanctuary in this peak making it her sacred abode. A huge pair of binoculars has been installed at the Snow View Point that allows you to take a closer look at the Himalayan range and its magical peaks. If you look closer, you will find a small temple housing the images of Ram, Sita, Laxman, Hanuman with Durga and Shiva. An aerial cable car connects you to the Snow View Point directly from the Mall Road of Mallital and shows you a spectacular view of the beautiful town.
