Serene hills to visit in India

Hills are the serene abode where everyone wants to go for a break when they are tired of the daily chaos in their cities. But these days, many people go to hills for holidays and as a result, those places have become crowded too.

There are many people who do not want to go to overcrowded places as they do not consider them as holiday destinations anymore. To make hill station stories in Hindi, they try to find out some hilly abodes which are still not much crowded and popular as a holiday destination. Not because they are not beautiful but it is just that those places are not popular yet. Here are some examples.

Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh
This one located in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, is yet untouched but the mad crowd of the tourists. This place is at an altitude of 10,000 feet and one of the serenest places in India. This place has Tibet on one side and Bhutan on the other and this place is mainly dominated by the Buddhists. This place is said to have one of the biggest monasteries in the world. If you are adventurous enough, you can also go for paragliding, rock climbing and river rafting. The mountains and the colourful flowers are quite a view here. The best time to visit here is in summers but you can also visit in winters if you have the courage to beat the cold. Avoid the monsoons here.

Coonoor, Tamil Nadu
People talk a lot about Coorg but not Coonoor. This is the most secluded hill station in this state and this place is the hub where Nilgiri tea is produced. If you love to trek then this is the perfect place for the base camp. The place is located at 1,850 metres above the sea level and one can easily do away with the crowds of Ooty here. The perfect time to visit this place is from October to February.

Pelling, Sikkim
This hill station is about 2100 metres above the sea level and this one is a very serene destination. Whenever people think of visiting Sikkim they think about Gangtok but tend to overlook Pelling. This place is not very well developed but it has stunning views which should not be missed. There are many lovely trekking routes from here. One can visit this place throughout the year except in monsoons.

Haflong, Assam
This is the only hill station in Assam which is quiet and not at all crowded. Here one can come in touch with the Assamese tribes which are their home. The blue hills will mesmerize you and the green rivers will take your breath away. One can also take a short excursion to the Jatinga village to see the migratory birds in winter. If you go a little further, you will find Maibong where one can find the ruins of an ancient kingdom. The best time to visit this place is from October to April.

Hill station magazine in Hindi has a lot of options in it.
