Top 10 hill stations in India - Most Beautiful Hill Station. #Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, delights visitors with its lovely lakes and relaxing houseboats. In fact, lakes and gardens are in such abundance there that Srinagar is often referred to as the "Land of Lakes and Gardens". The gardens have a distinctly Mughal influence, as many of them were cultivated by Mughal emperors. #Manali with its soothing backdrop of the Himalayas, offers a blend of tranquility and adventure that makes it one of northern India's most popular destinations. Although it's a popular place to go off on treks, you can do as little or as much as you want there. Located in the Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh, it's bordered by cool pine forest and the raging Beas River, which give it a special energy. #Mussoorie, located around an hour from Derahdun in Uttarakhand, is a popular weekend destination for north Indians, as well as honeymooners. One of the reasons for Mussoorie's popularity is that it has a lot of facilities developed especially for tourists. Take a cable car to Gun Hill, enjoy a beautiful nature walk along Camel's Back Road, have a picnic at Kempty Falls, or ride a horse up to Lal Tibba (the highest peak in Mussoorie). Mussoorie also offers a superb view of the Himalayas. #Shimla used to be the summer capital of the British Raj when they ruled India. Now it's the state capital of Himachal Pradesh. This town sprawls along a mountain ridge and is famous for its historical buildings and railway. The old Christ Church, with its beautiful stained glass windows, is one of Shimla's most prominent landmarks. Another is the Viceregal Lodge on Observatory Hill. These can be seen on a walking tour of Shimla. #Ooty Established in the early 19th century by the British as the summer headquarters of the Chennai government, Ooty is now a very popular place to escape the summer heat in Tamil Nadu. If you travel there during the peak season in April and May, do be prepared for it to be crowded! Ooty's top attractions include the 22-hectare Government Botanical Gardens (a flower show is held there every May as part of the Summer Festival), boating on Ooty Lake, and climbing Dodabetta Peak for an excellent view of the Nilgiri hills. #Darjeeling is also famous for its lush tea gardens. In addition, it's blessed with a stunning view of Mount Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest peak. Some of Darjeeling's most popular attractions include historic toy train, monasteries, botanical gardens, a zoo, and the Darjeeling-Rangeet Valley Passenger Ropeway (the longest aerial tramway in Asia). Darjeeling is a great place to walk around and explore the tea estates, villages, and markets. #Kodaikanal is nestled 120 kilometers from Madurai in the Palani Hills of Tamil Nadu. Its name means "Gift of the Forest", and you'll find many varieties of flora and fauna there. Orchards of pear trees and charming buildings with gabled roofs will greet you as you enter the town. There's an annual horticultural show at the landscaped botanical Bryant Park in May, waterfalls where you can enjoy a picnic beside, boating on the lake, and plenty of walking trails. Herbs and aromatherapy oils are some of the more interesting things to buy in Kodaikanal, with the eucalyptus oils being particularly popular. #Ladhak & #Leh Majestic in its scope and fascinating in the depth and variety of its experiences, Ladakh is one of the best places to visit in the world. High passes make up the region, sheer cliffs stand in stern starkness, gorgeous lakes shimmer invitingly from all corners, long empty roads beckon invitingly, and an atmosphere of peace and purity fills the air. #Sikkim's #capital, #Gangtok, sits along a cloudy mountain ridge about 5,500 feet above sea level. Sikkim only became part of India in 1975. Before that, it was a small independent Buddhist kingdom with its own monarchy after the end of British rule. Gangtok is a popular base for travel throughout the state, particularly with trekkers. It's a well-organized and clean city with strict littering, traffic and tobacco laws. Attractions include monasteries, viewpoints, a cable car, and a zoo that houses rare animals rescued from traders and poachers. #Mt.Abu The only hill station of #Rajasthan, its cool atmosphere and lush green surroundings make it a major tourist spot within the state. The most important attraction, however, are undoubtedly the Dilwara temples, which is one of the most stunning piece of architecture in the country. If you are a history or architecture buff, this is one of the places you should absolutely not miss out in India. #top10 #hillStation #inIndia #learn #eternity #trending #videos Follow us on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/learneternity/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/learn.eternity_/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/learneternity Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/1/118307041499666294074 Our Website: http://learneternity.com/
