HolidayIQ Traveller Abhijit Pal shares, “We stayed in a small hamlet called Peora, which is about 7 km from Mukteswar. The village is situated in the fruit bowl of Kumaon. We visited during the first week of June. The places still has trees, laden with apricots and plums. The mornings here start with soft sunlight with a great view of Himalayas. Trishul, Nandadevi, Nandakot and Dharachula peaks are clearly visible from the place. We took a morning walk through the jungles plucking some apricots and plums which were sufficient for breakfast. During the mid-morning, one can see the village kids going to the school. You can hardly spot any vehicle on the road. There are two buses plying on this road, one in the morning and another in the evening. The orange sun, through the dense forest is absolutely magnificent. The only option available in the local restaurants are vegetable noodle and chole. The night becomes really silent.”

2. Fagu - Chill With Himalayan Peaks

HolidayIQ Traveller Nishant Gupta shares, “Fagu is a very beautiful place in the Kufri region of Shimla. You can glimpse the beautiful peaks of the gigantic Himalayas from here. You can also view the breathtaking forests and fruit orchards. Fagu also has some of the most famous old Shiva temples. If you are here in February, you can be a part of the winter ski fests. During summers, the village of Fagu is popular as a picnic spot.”

3. Kausani - Watch The Snow Glow Like Gold

HolidayIQ Travller Becky Benians shares, “In about 10 hours from Delhi, you reach a place called Kausani, where the mind can't help but dare to soar free. Kausani about 560 km from Delhi, is an absolute paradise with views of the Nanda Devi Ranges (7000 mt), which is India's highest peak. Well, if that's not enticing enough, when the morning sun rises from behind the mountains, the snow glows like gold, and in the evening it looks like a pink cherry when the sun is setting. You can walk about to viewpoint and take a little day tour to Dunagiri, Ranikhet, Almora, Mukteshwar or even Baijnath, which has lovely 12th century temples. All these other places won't offer you such majestic views of the entire range of the Nanda Devi starting from Trishul Peak, to Nanda Kot, Nanda Ghunti, Nanda Devi East and do wait for the evening to arrive, and all you shutterbugs keep your cameras ready with enough battery and memory space, because you will run out of either.The local chicken curries and makki rotis are just way too delicious to be described in words. Not to forget the lovely shop run by the Kumaon Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd, which sells brilliant shawls of angora rabbits, body butter and essential oils.”

4. Lansdowne - Quaint Hill Station

HolidayIQ Traveller Arvind Shrivastav shares, “The drive from Delhi to Lansdowne is really awesome, roads are very good. You will surely enjoy the silence, beauty and the calmness of Lansdowne. Tip N Top, St Marry Church, Bhulla lake, Santoshi Mata Mandir, Garhwal Regiment Museum are some of the must-visit places. Pahari curry and rajma at the local markets is a must-try.”


5. Shoghi - Nature In It's Purest Form

HolidayIQ Traveller Shweta Tanwar shares, “We travelled to Shoghi from Delhi. After reaching Shogi, we all were amazed to see nature at its purest form. The sunrise, the glimpse of the Himalayas, dense forests and the sound of the chirpping birds is something that Delhi lacks. There are no fancy resturants here. Just home made special 'pahadhi khana' rich in taste made by the guest house people is all that you can find. Shoghi is a delight for all photographers to capture nature at its best.”

6. Damdama Lake - Camp By The Lake

HolidayIQ Traveller Jitendra Singh shares, “It's a wonderful place surrounded by the Aravalli Hills. The place has a big lake where visitors can enjoy boating. It is the best place to hang out with friends. The view of lake during sunrise, sunset and cloudy day is wonderful.”

7. Chail - Sky Full Of Stars

HolidayIQ Traveller Naval Arya shares, "Amazing view of the stars from here. The sky looks so clear full of stars. Also the cottages are so beautiful and a separate garden is also provided for each cottage. Whenever you got to Shimla, this is the best place where you should stay, its Chail."
