Forget Darjeeling. This place is way better. Watch the sun setting behind the gorgeous Himalayas. A hot cup of tea with the view will get you high! 

Subhajit Beg stayed at the Windsongs - A Luxury Purlieu: This small hotel in Kalimpong is just a piece of paradise. The property is about 4 Kms from the Kalimpong town a bit down from the main road thus providing excellent views of the Himalayas. Food is very good and they serve in huge quantity. The host is a caring person. I would definitely recommend this property for a short stay.

Small village located in Seraj Valley of Himachal. Let everyone else go to Manali and Shimla! This is a dreamy place with picture-perfect views and pleasant climate. Long walks and conversations mix well here. 

Arun Sudeendran shares about staying in Himalayan Trout House, "The place has a very homely environment and lovely view of Nagini River from the balcony. It feels like a dream location and the quaint looking cottage adds to the feel. The food is simply wonderful and so is the prompt service and excellent host Christopher."

A hidden gem away from the reach of the people. Relax by the lakes with a cup of coffee. Chill by the dams and waterfalls. Or go hiking in the forest. It's like a private island! 

Jaseel Babu stayed at the Green Mansions, Idduki: This was our first trip to Idukki. Gavi is a heaven on earth, so beautiful and thrilling place. We enjoyed the wildlife, a good jeep safari through mid forest, encounter with wild elephants and bisons. A must see place for all nature lovers. Mouth-watering Indian cuisine and neat and clean cottages will ensure your trip a memorable piece. Boating to the water falls and a bath under it is really enchanting. 

There is a lot more you can spot in the jungle than elephants and bisons! Find out.

Sai Srinivas recollects, "Gurudongmar Lake is really a serene and pristine beauty with snow capped peaks in the backdrop." Sourav Ray talks about the view, "It was a lifetime experience. The lake was completely frozen, cloud was covering the lake and sun was shining through the clouds. It was beauty, that can make you speechless. "

Animesh Das stayed at Apple Valley Inn: At the time of visiting Gurudongmar and Yumthang Valley, I have stayed one night at Apple Valley Inn in Lachung ( Sikkim) in month of May,2013. The hotel is very well placed as well as wooden rooms are neat & clean. The view from the hotel is really wonderful. The hotel guys are okay to response. The foods are okay enough. Above all, you will enjoy the staying at this hotel in the midst of the nature.
