Best Hill Stations in India


India is a vast country and the advantage of being so huge from the point of view of tourism is that there are different kinds of natural landforms that one can explore. India has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world, and it also has a wide variety of forests with all kinds of flora and fauna in the same. One must also not forget the Thar Desert in this context. To put a long story short, there is no dearth of tourist attractions here in India. However, the most intriguing of all of them are the mountains and the hill stations therein. Even as far as hill stations in India are concerned, there are a few names that happen to stand out.
