Coorg is a beautiful destination sure to be visited any time of the year. This place has beautiful plantation crops filled with exotic aroma of spices. The landscapes just make a memorable impression to remember. The winding and steep pathways that leads to other nearby destinations, make us feel to be lost in the lush green Ghats.

It is the serenity and tranquility and greenery and the weather that make kodai so special, so it can be best enjoyed if you stay for four to five days; relax, let go of all your steam and come back refreshed.

Shimla, as most people would know, is one of the most popular hill stations in North India. Out of the big four, i.e. Shimla, Nainital, Mussoorie and Manali, Shimla remains my favourite as I love the old world/British charm that exists in this beautiful town.

  Srinagar
 
     
 
What better summer destination to recommend than the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir! Srinagar is set around the beautiful Dal Lake, where picturesque houseboats or shikharas, carry tourists on boat rides around the placid lake. This scintillating hill resort set in the Kashmir valley is an ideal summer getaway. Srinagar basically has an alpine weather, as the summers are mild and winters are cold.
