Traffic jams, absurd broken roadways,  receding landscapes is all that Mussoorie can offer you presently. It’s no longer known for its vast flora and fauna. The super commercialisation of this hill station has taken away its intrinsic beauty.

Alt. Kausani

Far away from the crowd, Kausani is one such hill station that is specially meant for aspiring writers and poets. You will definitely fall in love with the scenic beauty Kausani take its pride in. Apart from the greenery Kausani has a whole lot of things to offer its visitors like adventurous hiking to Rudrahari Cave Temple, you can take long walks to Kausani Tea Estate, explore handicrafts, visit the Anashakti Ashram and Bageshwar temple nearby, and also get a view of famous Himalayan peaks like Nanda Devi, Trishul, and Panchachuli.

2. Ooty

No doubt Ooty has its own significance when we talk about hill stations. But what I have found so far is that this place does not have much to offer you apart from the grasslands and multiple mountain surroundings.

Alt. Munnar

Instead of making those recurring trip to Ooty,  this year try Munnar. It’s an abode for all those nature enthusiasts which allows them to explore the raw and the untouched part of our incredible India.

3. Bengaluru

Gone are the days when Bangalore was known as the Garden city of India. It has become more of a technical hub than any tourist place to offer a visit to.  The continuous traffic jams, noisy crowded streets will make you regret your decision of choosing it as your gateway.

Alt. Mysore

So, this year choose Mysore that gives you a plethora of new options to try. You can begin your Mysore trip with the Mysore Palace that’s known as one of the biggest and most visited palaces of the country. Visit Brindavan Garden that sits across 150 acres of the land.  The awesome musical fountain show is sure to satisfy your much needed gateway hunger.

4. McLeod Ganj

McLeod Ganj has been a quick getaway for every hills station lovers, especially for Delhites. But times have changed now and this place is experiencing a huge deterioration in terms of tourism and tourists as it does not have much to offer apart from Triund and Bhagsunag waterfall.

Alt. Tawang

Though less visited, Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh is situated at 2,670 metres above the sea level. Tawang offers an array of astoundingly beautiful hill town bordering China and Bhutan with snow Capped mountains, amazing lakes and mouth-watering delicious cuisine.

5. Manali

Manali is undoubtedly beautiful and will always be. But in case if you are too bored of visiting it again and again and need a refreshing change try Chakrata.

Alt. Chakrata

Located in the small, remote hilly area in the district Of Uttarakhand that is situated about 2,118metres above the sea level, which is way far from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can enjoy gorgeous waterfalls,  scenic sunset views, adventure activities, caves and much more that this place has to offer you.

6. Goa

Over crowded beaches, deteriorating cleanliness, unbearable noises, and an extreme level of flooding commercialisation has not only ruined Goa but also made it a huge turn off for those looking for some relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Alt. Daman and Diu

Well, you might have not heard much about this beautiful island but  

trust me on this. You would love every inch of this place. The sun kissed beaches,  from colonial Diu fort to vintage St. Paul’s church, this place has a lot more to offer and has the ability to  keep you glued to it while you pay your visit here.

7. Jaisalmer

Visiting jaisalmer has always been an exciting experience for its visitors. Experiencing the royalty of the huge Jaisalmer Fort, watching the amazing Gadisar Lake and Thar Desert has been some of the major tourist attractions of Jaisalmer. But if you have had enough of this place, we have a cool spot for you to visit that’s just nearby Jaisalmer in Rajasthan.  

Alt. Khimsar Village

Visit Khimsar village and you will know why we recommended this beautiful village as a part of your exotic gateway. You can only explore this place by jeeps, camel or a horse. Experience its beautiful and serene environment that’s just totally different from that of the usual Jaisalmer or Jodhpur .   

So, what are you waiting for??
