History of Land’s End Nainital
Land's End is exactly the spot where Nainital town comes to a dead end or from which there is no way to enter or exit. It became popular and famous only after people started coming here to determine the reason and quench their curiosity as to why it was called Land's End. After visiting this place the reason became quite obvious and very soon tourists started coming in flocks as it also offers a picturesque sight of the verdant lush green valley marked with small villages around the neighboring hilly region. Moreover, you also get a panoramic view of the vivacious 'Khurpa Lake' or ‘Khurpa Tal’, which holds stagnant but crystal clear water. You also get to see the plantation and fields being ploughed over terraced hills which lend the buoyant place a rustic charm and a pure feel of the countryside.
