There are a couple of high mountain passes as well. Seeking some serenity? Visit the emerald Pangong Tso Lake, Tso Moriri, or Hunder which is called a desert in the sky. There you can enjoy a desert safari on the double-humped Bactrian camel. The nearest airport is located in Leh, which is well connected to major Indian airports like Delhi. You can take a cab from there onwards.

Varca Beach, Goa 

One of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Varca in South Goa is perfect for you if you aren’t afraid to get a bit of a tan. The best part is that unlike other popular beaches in Goa, this one is comparatively secluded and hawker-free. Click Instagram-worthy pictures on the pristine white sands, and the contrasting black and red lava rocks. You will find many shacks serving delectable Goan cuisine, along with some chilled beer. Enjoy a swim, laze around, and invest some time in solitude if you want. There are boat trips that let you see the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins. Buy some Goan handicrafts and antiques at the beach shops. You will find plenty of great hotels in your budget in the vicinity on MakeMyTrip. 


If you want to visit a hill station, but somewhere not too cold, Ooty is a great option. Cradled in the Nilgiri hills of South India, Ooty is a picturesque small town surrounded by natural beauty. It retains the distinct colonial charm, and there is no better way to experience it than the toy train (Nilgiri Mountain Railways), which operates frequently during peak summers. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The 46 km long track passes through the scenic Nilgiri mountains between Mettupalayam, Conoor, and Ooty. Apart from that, you can visit tea plantations, and botanical gardens, or watch the sunrise from the Doddabetta Peak. If you are a history buff, don’t forget to visit the stone house built in 1822, now known as the Government Arts College of Ooty. Be prepared for some amazing architecture, and interesting anecdotes. Ooty is well connected by road to many Indian cities. The nearest airport is at Coimbatore, around 100 km from Ooty. You can take cabs directly to the hill station from there.


Aptly known as the ‘Scotland of the East’, Shillong is the best way to start your tryst with the North East. The capital of the state of Meghalaya, Shillong is known for its beautiful waterfalls, sparkling lakes, greenery, and fabulous cuisine. Spend an amazing day full of breathtaking views at Umiam Lake. Enjoy the wooden colonial architecture of All Saints Cathedral. The Lewudh Market in Shillong offers you a taste of the local culture. You will find a variety of things like handicrafts, betel nuts, food, and more in this vibrant market. Trekkers have a lot to do in Shillong.

You can also take a train to Guwahati, and then take a bus or cab from there to Shillong.


Home to the Dalai Lama, this hill station is an abode of natural beauty and spiritual significance.
