Photographer's Note

Just 24 km from Nainital - lies the mystique lake with 9 corners or or the 'nine-cornered lake'. Surrounded by dense forested hills on all sides it provides solace from the maddening rush of the plains.

Naukuchiatal is nourished by an underwater spring, which keeps its water levels high. Naukuchiatal Lake is the deepest lake in the Lake District of India (Nainital) and lost in acres of oak forest in the lesser Himalayas.

It is believed by the locals that whoever sees all the nine corners of the lake at one shot, attains Nirvana. Pretty views of terraced fields and meadows make this lake destination an enjoyable stopover. Although the lake is the prime attraction here, there are more activities for tourists such as angling, trekking, bird-watching and Para Gliding / ParaSailing.
