India is famous for its hill stations, most of
them being developed by the Britishers during their rule. These
all formed the summer capitals during their rule.
All the hill stations are well linked from the major cities and
towns by road, rail and air. Also these have good boarding/lodging
facilities with amenities like swimming pools, pool tables, casinos
The picturesque Hill stations are popular as resorts among both
Indians and visitors, providing a relaxing and salubrious retreat
from the heat and dust of the plains. The snow clad peaks and the
cool hill stations on the foothills of these hills provide respite
from the hustle and bustle of the city.
India has seven principal mountain ranges and the most important
amongst them are the Himalayas followed by the Shivaliks, which
have the most popular hill resorts. Shimla, Dalhousie, Nainital,
Mussorie, Panchmarhi, Mount Abu, and Kodaikanal are some of
the favorite hill resorts of international tourists.
