HolidayIQ Traveller Prateek Gauba shares, “Mandi is a unique city in itself. Going by its history, it was a place of trade between people of different regions. Mandi is an unusual location for such interaction to take place, yet it holds in itself a charm that distinguished it from other cities of Himachal. There are a lot of temples in Mandi, portraying ancient architectural styles. The temple mostly built along the banks of rivers offer calm to the pilgrims. The city is breathtakingly beautiful. In the background is the noise of the rivers, which renders a kind of peace most travellers would not have been used to. It makes an ideal getaway from the hustles of city life.”

2. Peora

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.”

3. Bhimtal

HolidayIQ Traveller Virendar shares, “Bhimtal is a very beautiful getaway from Delhi. If you are a nature lover and want a break from your hectic schedule, you must visit this place to rejuvenate yourself. The place is blessed with scenic natural beauty. Bhimtal to me is a special place where you can sit for hours around the lake in calm atmosphere without doing anything. The aquarium in the middle of the lake is beautiful. Also, visit the famous Bhimeshwara Mahadev Temple located on the shores of Bhimtal Lake.”

4. Fagu

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.”


5. Kausani

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.”

6. Dausa

HolidayIQ Traveller S. Srivastav shares, “Rajasthan is an excellent place to enjoy with family. Dausa is traditional with a blend of modernity. Every nook and corner is full of places where one can just get mesmerized with the beauty and history. The forts are absolutely marvelous and leaves one wondering about the nature of sacrifices the kings made. Khawaraoji, Chand Baori and Bhadravati Palace are a must-visit.”

7. Lansdowne

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.”

8. Shoghi

Shoghisource: HolidayIQ

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.”
