HolidayIQ reviewer Sanchi Rana says “Ooty is known for its splendid beauty and lush green mountains. I would suggest to carry some warm clothes. There is mild shower in the month of June and the weather is cloudy.A must visit is the Botanical Garden, Pykara Lake in Ooty and Sims park in Coonor.Ooty is also famous for its toy train which plies between Mettuplayam and Ooty.

HolidayIQ reviewer Kunal Aire says "Ooty is such a beautiful place to visit in india with cool weather at any time of the year. Best travelled to during the months of April and May to escape the heat. One can go sightseeing without the hassels of traffic and crowd. Ooty free of pollution and full of greenery."

HolidayIQ reviewer Indranath Banerjee says “Coorg, one of the most famous hill stations of south India, attracts tourists throughout the year with its picturesque views and pleasant weather. It's a treat to all the five senses with its scenic beauty, cool breeze and romantic coffee estates

HolidayIQ reviewer Sebastian Benedict says "Coorg is blessed with its own scenic beauty and biodiversity. If you are the kind that can sit and just absorb the song of the hills, then this place is for you. Despite being counted (now) as a popular tourist spot the culture retains its simplicity"

HolidayIQ reviewer Ajay Tripathi says “This city truly represents an old colonial English establishment with some very old heritage structures. Remarkably most of them are maintained very well. Uphill Shimla  makes one feel very exhilarated. If you plan on staying in Shimla, Kufri is the ideal place for a laid back and easy vacation with scenic beauty all around” 

HolidayIQ reviewer Adesh Sidhu says "If you are a history buff then a visit to Shimla is a must. There are many historical buildings and every building has a story to share. If you are looking for some relaxed holiday then Shimla offers a lot of things. Stroll on ridge and mall at a leisurely pace and see the world passing by you. There are many options of food which can be relished in Shimla"

HolidayIQ reviewer Anurag Meel says “Nainital is a heavenly destination. This beautiful place is a synonym for heaven. The beautiful hill tops, horse riding, drives over the hills, Nainital Zoo, delicious food, lovely people makes it worth visiting

HolidayIQ reviewer Mahesh Suthar says "A place of tranquility amidst chaos is a desperation of escape from monotony and rut. Coming up to the altitude of this lake city, people of all faith find a way to connect to divine and Nature together as one, be it in the clanging bells of temple or aroma of burning candles in church or in the serene silence of understanding Himalayas. Nautical and it's lakes will leave any nature lover in awe

HolidayIQ reviewer Arpitha Mondal says “The queen of hill of West Bengal is Darjeeling. Fantastic sunny weather, clear sky all together make the trip wonderful. Ecstatic sunrise over the Kanchenjunga from tiger hill fulfilled the trip

HolidayIQ reviewer Hemanth Kumar says "If you want some mental peace, Darjeeling is a must visit. Best time to visit is during the summer from April to June. Do visit the city market. Go early in the evening because the stalls shut down before 9 pm. Enjoy a cool winter with your loved one. Must visit Tiger Hill and watch sunrise."

HolidayIQ reviewer Rajneesh says "Going to Dalhousie was one of the best decisions of my life. I would like to recommend everyone to visit Dalhousie atleast once. Khajjar is one of the most attractive places to visit. The Chamera lake is a beautiful destination for boating. For the adventure camp and trekking, I would like to recommend Kalatop. The Chamba district is well developed and the views add to its natural beauty."
