Nainital is one of the most beautiful places that I have visited. The tranquility of this place is soothing and overwhelming at the same time. In my last visit I came across Eco Cave Gardens on the tourist guide map. Usually I avoid these maps as well as gardens in general, but for some reason I had decided to give this one a try. While the garden was very pretty and well maintained, what excited me were the natural caves that were present there. The best part is visitors are allowed to go exploring into them (I'm sure at their own risk, however) and for their benefit, small lights have been fitted on the walls of the caves to help you find you find your way around underground. Better than the best part? Some of the caves extend pretty deep and have not been made explore-friendly by the administration. In all probability, they would highly advice you to not go wandering too far down but hey, it isn't everyday that you get to rough it out, climb slimy walls, squeeze your way in through and explore relatively safe caves and feel like you're part of a Nat Geo excursion team!
