February is ending, and there is a slow and steady rise in mercury levels. With the approaching summer, it will soon be very hot, and travelling in the plains will get difficult. But it is also the time when kids have holidays and there is enough time to travel. The mountains, with their fair weather, come to the rescue.
I am beginning my summer travels with a quick visit to Ooty, spending time in the green and beautiful mountains of the Nilgiris. Later, with the progress of season, I am planning to spend time in the Himalayas, escaping the heat in the plains. Where are you planning to head this summer? Some suggestion here.
The choice in south are not many. Ooty, Munnar and Kodaikanal remain the popular destinations. Places surrounding Bangalore, though not as pleasant as the hills, still tend to have a good weather.
Up North, the mighty Himalayas provide plenty of choices. There are well known hill stations - Shimla, Dalhousie, Dharmashala, Manali, Darjeeling, Nainital, and many more. Himachal and Uttaranchal are full of beautiful Himalayan destinations, and if you are in Delhi, there are many places to go to. So where do you choose to go?
