Ladakh

This is a place that is in the state of Kashmir and is the place that you go to when you are looking for an adventure.

Shimla

Dharamshala

Darjeeling

This place has been described as the Jack of Holiday and the Queen of Summers. The place is a bit congested but the trappings that it offers more than compensate —you could go to Tiger hill to watch the sun rise or you could also visit the Rock gardens and waterfalls that are to be found in Darjeeling. This is also an ideal place for a family vacation for the simple reason that it’s a town that is straddled with malls and fine eating joints.

Sikkim

This is a place that is located in the North East part of the country. The second smallest part of the country offers a number of rich attractions such as the stunning mountains and nature walks that litter the state. Admittedly India is a vast nation and one may argue that these seven destinations do not even begin capturing the soul of the nation.
