Indian summers can be excruciatingly hot, with temperatures shooting several notches above normal. However, this is also the time when several hill stations scattered all across India come alive after a long wintery slumber. With Summer holidays, you can visit the magnificent hill stations where heritage and history exist in equal measure.
To get the most of your Summer tours in India, lose yourself in the varied charms that Kashmir has to offer, or go to Leh, where the weather, monasteries and lakes will stop you in your tracks. Explore the valleys in Manali, which is also a perfect family escape. Then there’s Shimla, with its ethereal scenery, fascinating colonial history and legendary Mall Road. Witness the best sunrise in India at Tiger Hill in Darjeeling, and let the soothing aroma of freshly plucked tea leaves rejuvenate your senses. Enjoy the tranquility and long walks at Ranikhet, where time stands still.
