Where to Go

Home

SRINAGAR

Srinagar is not an escape in any ordinary sense of the term. But it is still a question one can answer 

KASAULI

A small hillstation for those who value the sound of silence

THANEDHAR

Picking apples, nicking them, discovering quaint characters, savouring shakkar paaras and milking cows in Thanedhar

DHARAMSHALA

McLeodganj/Dharamshala has all the signs of a tired tourist haunt: ugly neon signs, ungainly buildings and stories of drugs and whores. But the air is still crisp, the mountains majestic and the cake memorable

High tea amidst the cold green hills of Munnar

Abroad
