Nainital is in the middle of hosting its 2020 Winter Carnival in a bid to revive its tourism sector. The Uttarakhand Tourism Development Council and Nainital District Administration kickstarted preparations earlier this month, and selected a number of areas spanning the city for the five-day festival.

According to reports, Sataal, Bhimtal, Kotabagh, and Pangot are a few places headlining the carnival. People can indulge in activities ranging from bird-watching, village-touring, and wall-painting. Those with more of an adventure streak can choose from kayaking, paragliding, boating, para-motoring, hot air balloon rides, ATV rally, MTB rally, trekking, zip-lining, and rock-climbing. Flower shows and heritage walks are included as well.
