Description

We are back with the third edition of our book 100 Holidays in the Hills. It’s no surprise that this book is a bestseller. The hills are the definitive holiday destination for tourists in India.

There’s a wide variety at your command – from cities like Shimla and Srinagar to one-hill places like Kemmannagundi and Yelagilri. We’ve tried to bring you many lesser-known getaways that are easy to access and make for a cool holiday. Some of these destinations exist simply because of the enterprising spirit of a mountain lover who built a cottage at the edge of a cliff, and decided to share it with others.

From a holiday where you can sigh over a mountain sunset even as the kids order pizza, to a complete break where you’ll hardly see a soul, we have it all.

The 100 destinations in the book have been divided geographically into four sections: North, East, West and South. These sections cover the popular, must-do destinations of Himachal, Uttarakhand, Kashmir, the Sahyadris, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka along with the mysteries of Ladakh and Spiti, and also unfold the less-visited splendor of the North-Eastern beauty spots.

As usual, we've taken care to get you the latest information on sightseeing, accommodation and travel facts. We have also given particular attention to resorts for the family and for middle-budget travelers, and to soft adventure activities for the young and the restless.
