India has abundant hill stations throughout the country making it a quiet and captivating destination for tourists. Kashmir has some of the most beautiful hill stations in India including Gulmarg, Srinagar and Leh Ladakh. In Himachal Pradesh too, tourists like the hill stations around Shimla, Manali and Dalhousie. Mussoorie and Nainital are one of the most popular hill stations in North India. Coorg, Ooty and Kodaikanal are the most popular hill stations in South India.

There are not only one or two mountain ranges in India even there are seven mountain ranges here. From the lush green environment of the Western Ghats, the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas also play an important role in the natural beauty of India. There are many Prasadhi hill stations in these mountain ranges.

Gulmarg – Gulmarg means valley of flowers. Gulmarg is a valley full of flowers where you can enjoy the spring and summer season. This place is completely covered with snow during the winter season and you can enjoy skiing here.

Manali – Manali is surrounded by palm trees and Beas River located in the Kullu Valley. Manali is best known for skiing.

Tawang – A panoramic view of the mountains of the Himalayas is seen from Tawang and there are many lakes which are located just a few kilometers from Guwahati.

Yelagiri – Another offbeat hill station in South India is Yelagiri where you can get a chance to spend some time amidst the peaceful environment.

Shimoga – The most beautiful hill station of the Western Ghats is Shimoga which is not very popular. There are many waterfalls like Sagra Fall, Kodachadri, Agunga etc.

Having spent some time in India, I know how passionate many Indians are about cricket – maybe some of you can join in the cricket thread? At the moment it’s just us Brits going on about how wonderful our team are. Given the drubbing you gave us in the winter, I don’t believe none of you could challenge that!!

Hi @AjaySutar

I’m glad you enjoyed your stay in a hill station – I’ve visited one in Malaysia and found it a welcome retreat from the summer heat.

We you also escaping from heat? If you look around on this site you’ll find we’re a chatty bunch, and we’d love to know more about where you live. Maybe you could join in the ‘what are you doing today’ thread? You’d be very welcome.
