Many believed that the area of Nainital was reminiscent of the Cumbrian Lake District in England and thus led the homesick Englishmen to flock to Nainital.

If we look at the history of this beautiful lake town, the town was founded in 1841, when a British trader named Peter Barren constructed his first European-style lodge in this region. Soon the town became a health resort favored by the British troops and colonial officials. The landslide of 1880 was a significant part of the history of Nainital. The great landslide devastated the newly formed town, but this did not hamper the growth of this place. The people of Nainital regrouped and rebuilt the beautiful town.
