Summer is upon us and it is a great time to start looking for holiday tour packages! Yes, we are not kidding when we tell you that this season, some websites are offering ridiculously good discounts! Alas, my limited bank balance does not permit me to cross the perimeter of my city! But if you have a family to look after, then you should make full use of the opportunity. Some of the best summer holiday options in India for this summer would be:
Shimla: Shimla is the place where you can run into the arms of nature and walk over snow-clad mountains which will laugh alongside your chuckles! Its lovely landscape coupled with churches, mansions and markets lend this place that unspoiled colonial look.
Kashmir: Kashmir is another hill station which is trodden heavily during the summer days. While towns like Srinagar and attractions like Dal Lake work their own brand of magic, the proximity to religious sites of Vaishno Devi is another reason why we love this place.
Ooty: In case, you wish to say hello to Nilgiri Hills and skip the Himalayas for the time being, then the green-wet town of Ooty would be your favorite muse this season. The best holiday packages these days are including Ooty owing to its verdure, quaintness and cost-effective hotels.
Darjeeling: Darjeeling is another hill station which you must visit once! Its beauty has already been captured in films like ‘Barfi’ and ‘Parineeta’. Do you need another reason to visit the place?
Goa: Goa, they say, is a round-the-year destination! Though, winter is the best time to visit Goa, if you wish to save money and escape the peak crowd, then summer time should fit into your bills easily.
