7 Heavenly Hill Beauties You Must Visit

''Hills mesmerise with their beauty and charm. Do consider these when planning next vacation in hills''

RANIKHET : Location: Uttarakhand
Ranikhet, literally known as queen’s meadows, is a cantonment town and a prefect retreat if wanting to be close to snow-clad Himalayas and seeking peacefulness and isolation during the stay. Natural treks, amazing flora and awesome views makes this place an ideal destination for visitors. The place is surrounded by thick pine, oak and deodar trees, which enhances the alluring beauty of this town, which is also home to a number of ancient temples.

TRIUND : Location: Himachal Pradesh
It is a heavenly retreat in the Himalayas away from the maddening crowd of cities. It's a small, approx 10 kms trek, which can be easily done from Mcleodganj or Daharamkot, 2kms ahead of Mcleaodganj, on some extended weekend. The tracks from Rawa, Dal Lake, Dharamkot and Bhaksunag meet at a ridge known as Galu Temple, which has a small shrine and a water point. The trek starts easy but the gradient becomes sharper as you ascend up the hill. Situated in the lap of Dhauladhar mountains, Triund gives panoramic view of the dhauladhar mountains on one side and kangra valley on the other. The trek is quite steep but is compensated by walks through the Rhododendron and Oak forests.

MORI : Location: Uttarakhand
This quiet hill station is about 420 kms from Delhi and is located in the north-west Garhwal region of Uttarkashi district. A perfect place to relax and unwind amidst splendid beauty as the weather is usually pleasant and cool here. Wooded hills, lush green paddy fields, waterfalls and nature walks amidst pine trees makes Mori one of the beautiful hill stations in Uttarakhand. Besides, this culture rich hill station houses a couple of ancient temples carrying beautiful architectural styles. The place is also coming up as a popular rafting camping site lying on the course of Tons River. Options of rock climbing, hiking, trekking, bird-watching, kayaking and experiencing diverse flora and fauna are also available here.

LANSDOWNE : Location: Uttarakhand
Lansdowne is one of the quietest and unspoiled hill stations in India with scenic beauty never seen before. A small cantonment town, Lansdowne was one of the popular hill stations where British army personnel galloped across the ridge that overlooked a sprawling valley and the Greater Himalayas. Britishers brought up this place to cater to new recruits of Garhwal Rifles and loved it so much so that they named it after Sir Henry Charles Keith Petty-Fitzmaurice, viceroy of India from 1888 to 1894. The drive along river Khoh from the place till destination is breath-taking with roads well tarred, thanks to the cantonment board. The hills keep unfolding their magic and mysticism during the drive till one reaches the destination. You know you have reached the place when you turn past the gates of Garhwal Rifles Cantonment with huge welcome hoardings.

ROHRU : Location: Himachal Pradesh
It is a little over 100 kms from Simla. A perfect hill station for a summer retreat, Rohru is like a wide canvas. From trout fishing on the banks of the Pabbar River to camping, gliding and trekking - you have a variety of things to keep you busy. Rohru is ideal for going in groups. If you go during the winters, you can experience snow. Extremely picturesque, the apple orchards in Rohru are a must do. Among other tourist hot spots is the Shikhru Devta temple. When here, make sure you go in for heli-skiing on the Chanshal ranges, canoeing and rafting. Fishing is an absolute must - it happens in water spots like Seema, Sandasu, Tikri in Chirgao region.

CHANDRABADANI : Location: Uttarakhand
It is approx 320 kms from Delhi, 10 km north of Kandi Khal (a place on the Devaprayag-Kirti Nagar metalled road) and 22 km from Devprayag. Stand atop the mountain, where the temple is located, and get panoramic 360 degree view of the snow-capped surrounding Himalayan peaks. Chandrabadani is one of the Siddh Peeths besides Kunjapuri and Surkanda, dedicated to Sati, wife of Lord Shiva. It is believed that after Sati immolated herself, Lord Shiva started heading towards Himalayas carrying the body. It is then that parts of her body fell accidentally at these three Siddh Peeths, with torso at Chandrabadani.

Besides, a perfect place to indulge in some serious photography and make trip worth reminiscing. Manali is also a starting point for a number of treks including Chandrakhani Pass and Beas Kund. Old Manali can also be visited for some old wooden architecture and Buddhist temples. Naggar Castle and Art Gallery are a must see here.
