There’s something I’ve noted about many hill stations near Delhi – overall, they cater to only certain kinds of people, providing leisure activities falling within a limited range. However, when a getaway is planned as a family, each member has a different taste which needs to be catered to. Some want to explore the nature hard to find in the cities on weekend getaways, some just need to shop, some are categorized into what is called the knowledge seeker, some need nothing but peace from the usual hustle-bustle of life in big cities while others simply want to get rid of the longing they have for adventure, in any of the hill stations near Delhi!
How will these weekend getaways provide families with a variety of options? How will each of them truly get a taste of their own wishes?
Access to family’s desires granted. Welcome to Bhimtal in Uttrakhand! It has a plethora of places with different purposes to match everyone’s wishes. Unlike many hill stations near Delhi, this region has a lot in store!
