Nainital which is very popular with tourists who will have something extra to look forward to very soon, if all goes well. Uttarakhand can now boast of having a fourth bird conservation reserve in the state. This reserve has been named the Naina Devi Himalayan Bird Conservation Reserve, after the beloved Goddess Naina Devi, whom the locals worship (and from whom Nainital has derived its name). It is going to be located in proximity to Nainital at a place called Kilbury, which by the way makes for a lovely walk. It is barely 9 kilometres from Nainital.
