Why ‘Nainital’ Is an Ideal Destination for A School Trip?

By The Shri Ram School
If you are lucky enough to study in one of the best schools in Delhi and NCR then there is one thing that you are always at an advantage at—being exposed to better opportunities than children studying at other schools. This includes sports, extra-curricular activities and of course the school trips. 
Talking about school trips, there are schools which organize foreign trips for students but there are places within our country that are worth being explored and Nainital is one of them. 
Nainital is not a mountain hideaway by any means, unless you decide to give the place a visit during the off-season period. Despite the crowd, noise, dirt you may encounter on the street of Nainital, students and teachers both are bound to fall in love with the small town in less than a day or two. 
The hill station is blessed with panoply of picturesque sites and fun activities that you just cannot miss. By following the pointers given below, the school trip to Nanintal can be the one filled with fun-filled memories. 
Boating: This may fall under one of the clichéd Nainital activities, however, boating in the azure Naini lake never gets old, even after having repeated the activity a thousand times over. You will be charmed by the scenic views that encapsulate you and the polychrome boats that wade along with you in the calm water.
Thandi Sadak: Lying just opposite Mall Road in Nanital is the Thandi Sadak, offering a break from the sometimes-overwhelming Mall Road with its cluttered stores that line the street. Thandi Sadak is peaceful and serene and houses a tranquil lake to take a walk by.
Kilbury: Pines and deodars line the Kilbury landscape and offer a view of the snow-laden peaks and clouds of birds dispersed all through the sky. A picnic under this panorama with friends and teachers is indelible. 
Heritage: Visit the church of St. John Church in the Wilderness, which showcases typical Victorian architecture. The altar inside the structure is inscribed with names of the 1880 landslide victims. The Gurudwara at Flats is also a must visit. You will leave blissful, after having listened to the strains of the Shabad Kirtan. The Naina Devi temple, situated just at the perimeter of a lake, with thousands of bells strung all over it is another tranquil location to visit. 
These locations must be given a thought by the teachers when they are planning a school trip to Nainital. Often times, steering away from the conventional sites helps you learn much more about a place.
