Hi Naish, Hope you are doing great!!! Good to know that you have planned a trip to Niani tal, during the winters as the weather will be pleasant and chilli at night. Pangot is around 1hrs drive from naini devi mandir and via kala dungi Pahari. Making it in points for easy to understand and use full tips 1. Seek local’s assistance when you are in Panghot as they have better idea about where the birds be during winters and summers. 2. If you are going for a photography you have to carry high zoom lens as some times a normal Camera zoom not able to catch the best shots. 3. Stay in Naini-tal look for an hotel on Mall road shouldn’t’ cost you much as you are travelling during the low season so fares are likely to be between INR 1000 to MAX 2000/- PD Transportation 4. You can hire bike on mall road which is between INR 1000 to 1500 with full tank. 5. Would suggest you to get a Royal Enfield for better grip on steep & narrow hills roads and acceleration. 6. Whatever the KMS you ride at the day end get the tank full on your own as the amount they collect is based on the ODO meter, which can be easily fooled so better have petrol filled on your own. 7. You can hire these back around 8 or 9 O’clock in the morning but be sure to be back by 1730hrs as the Mall road remain close from 1800hrs to 2100hrs. Food & Liquor 8. If you booze then it may disappoint you as the liquor is sometimes not available so where ever you take your first halt before naini tal buy extra bottle as spare just in case if you don’t get your brand otherwise Sikkim, Old monk is easily available also even if you happen to visit to any liquor shop in nainital then the closing time I guess is around 08 O’clock to manage accordingly 9. There are many options for street food, you can go to Bhotia Market there is famous MOMO’s shop best in and across nainital also there are some good restaurants you can hope in. Advice 10. Don’t drink and drive even during the day time rather sit somewhere and enjoy the scenic view have a happy and safe trip.
