How to reach Nainital from Delhi

Many people are feared about which way and how to go for Nainital from Delhi, the questions people ask me are- train from Delhi to Nainital, train from Kathgodam to Nainital, a direct bus from Delhi to Nainital, how to reach nainital from Delhi and many more questions related to Delhi to Nainital journey.
If you too have the questions similar to other people, then read this article till end.

Let's start
When coming from Delhi with Train the route is as follows- Ghaziabad, Rampur, Rudrapur, Haldwani, Kathgodam. From Kathgodam hilly area starts, and there is no train in hilly areas of uttarakhand.
So the queries- Train from Delhi to nainital and train from Kathgodam to Nainital are invalid, train is available till Kathgodam only.
Now the question comes how to reach Nainital then, so
 If you are coming from Delhi, UP, Or any other part of India for Nainital, Mukteshwar, Pithoragarh, Almora, Bageshwar, Kausani, Bhimtal, Sattal, etc., then the nearest railway station for these place is Kathgodam Railway station.

If you are coming with Train the nearest Railhead for Nainital region is Kathgodam, yet Haldwani is known as " the Entrance of Kumaun and the Market of Kumaun" (Kumaun is the one of the two unofficial halves of Uttarakhand, the other is Garhwal)
Haldwani railway station is 5 kms before Kathgodam railway station. From Haldwani, one can get the Bus, Taxi, Shared Taxi, Private Taxi for any part of Kumaun whether Nainital, Mukteshwar, Kausani, Ranikhet, Sattal, etc with very ease
In the honest opinion of uttarakhand adventure guide one should get off the train 5 kilometers before the Kathgodam at Haldwani railway station.

Now the question arises how to go to Nainital or any other famous hill station from Haldwani.
Let's check every route in detail
