Avoid KASAULI for it will let your creative juices flow…

Ruskin Bond was born in this enchanting town (we’re guessing the natural beauty and British charm of Kasauli empowered his pen!) Kasauli is home to a variety of birds, the oldest brewery in Asia, some marvellous orchids and trekking trails. What if they inspired the latent artist in you? Avoid Kasauli at all costs because it might compel you to learn photography, pen a poem or create masterstrokes with your painting brush.

Avoid MUKTESHWAR because nothing else will measure up…

Situated atop the Kumaon Hills, Mukteshwar provides a breathtaking view of the Himalayan peaks and expansive valleys. Besides, you can enjoy a range of adventure activities here. The sunset from this point is heartwarmingly gorgeous. Avoid Mukteshwar because after taking in the extraordinary view from Mukteshwar, everything else you lay your eyes on will seem ordinary.

Avoid NAINITAL as you might leave a piece of your heart there..

You are sure to leave a piece of you in Nainital as you peddle your boat in the Naini Lake or bask in the sight from Snow View or Tiffin Top. Nainital is by no means meant for the fainthearted.

Avoid RISHIKESH because you might start believing in magic…

Throw in a generous dose of adventure sports, add a sprinkle of spirituality and health (read Yoga & meditation) and voila! You have Rishikesh! The Laxman Jhula and the Beatles Ashram make the seventh largest city of India a little more magical. Avoid Rishikesh because magic will never have seemed more real.

Avoid KASOL because it will never give you a dull moment..

Hiking spots, trekking trails and the sight of the youthful Parvati River. If that doesn’t excite you much, the nightlife sure will. Life gets more exciting by the minute when you’re in Kasol and who wants to make moments that are hard to forget! Therefore, avoid Kasol.

The highest cricket ground in the world at Chail the Himalayan Natural Park in Kufri will leave you wanting more. So, avoid going to Chail for you will be forced to pay heed when it calls you.

Avoid BHIMTAL for it is the abode of peace…

Bhimtal, or the  lake district of India as it is fondly known, is synonymous to peace. Bhimtal Lake (which houses the marvellous Bhimtal Island), Victoria Dam and the Hidimba Parvat will calm your soul. Ah! Avoid Bhimtal because it is too peaceful for the soul!

Avoid PANGOT because it will give you a warm welcome…

The winged creatures abundantly found in Pangot will be a treat to the eyes. Your treks and sightseeing will only become more special in their company. Avoid Pangot because the chirping birds will be the best ever host.

Avoid NAHAN as it will pique your curiosity…

The mysterious Jaitak Fort is steeped in history while the Suketi Fossil Park is an extraordinary insight into the past. As you dig deeper, the two spots will arouse your curiosity further. Thus, you must avoid Nahan!

Avoid DHANAULTI because it promises a refreshing break…

Camping, shopping, adrenalin raising activities, nature walks…Dhanaulti is a break from your mundane city life. But who wants to break away from one’s mundane life and stop by and breathe for a while! So, avoid Dhanaulti if you’re not looking for a stimulating break.

I have travelled to most of the cities in Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh however, I have my reservations about visiting them again lest I get lost in the tranquillity that these destinations offer. That said, I know I will never have the heart to the return to the humdrum of daily life once I set foot in these endearing lands.
