Bhimtal, a town in Nainital district, is pompously sitting above sea level at an altitude of 1,370 meters. This city is named after Bhima, the mythological character of Mahabharata. It is a serene place that is known for its major attraction, the Bhimtal Lake, which has an island at the center. The climate of this place remains very pleasant during summers and chilly during winters, i.e., around 15° C to 29° C and 4° C to 18° C temperature, respectively. The beautiful large aquarium situated on the island of the Bhimtal Lake is simply a visual treat to the visitors.
In comparison to Nainital, Bhimtal is an idyllic place that is less crowded. The local language of this place is Gadhwali, Kumaoni, and Hindi. Apart from the lake, tourists can also visit Bhimeshwara Mahadev Temple, Victoria Dam, Sattal and Nal Damyanti Tal, Nag Karkotaka Maharaj Temple and Sayad Baba ki Mazar. So, Bhimtal makes a perfect getaway for those who want to spend some time in the lap of nature.
