Samuel Johnson, the renowned English author said “The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are”

The quote kind of summarizes the point behind visiting new places. You must definitely have heard and read about the beauty of the Himalayan ranges, the hill stations which are nestled in it and the stunning sceneries everywhere you look. But no book, painting or photograph can truly capture the magnanimity of the majestic mountains. You have to visit the place and see it for yourself. The real beauty of these mountains is much more than you can imagine.

When you think of a vacation in a hill station in India, there are three places which spring to mind – Darjeeling, Kashmir and Ladakh. Each of these places is unique in its own manner. Each of them has an underlying character, a culture and an aura which is unmatched and distinct.

Darjeeling tour takes you to the eastern state of West Bengal. The place itself is located at a height of 2150 meters and offers wonderful views of the snow capped peaks at a distance. From Tiger Hill, which is one of the best attractions of Darjeeling located at a height of 2590 meters, you can see Mount Kanchenjunga, which is the second highest peak in the world as well as Mount Everest, the highest peak on earth. The zoo is another good place to visit in Darjeeling tour. You can see some rare Himalayan animals such as yaks, Himalayan bears, red pandas and snow leopards. The zoo also houses Siberian tigers. Other good attractions in Darjeeling tour are the Chowrasta for shopping, Happy Valley tea gardens, Druk Thupten Sangag Choling Monastery (Dali Monastery) which belongs to Kargyupa sect and the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute.

Kashmir tour packages are also highly sought after by people who wish to drown themselves in natural beauty. In Kashmir, you can visit tranquil and pristine lakes such as the Dal Lake, Nagin Lake and Manasbal Lake, which are all located in Srinagar. Kashmir tour packages also include trips to Hazrathbal shrine, beautiful Mughal gardens, Nishat garden and Indira Gandhi tulip gardens. Also make it a point to visit Diskit Monastery, Betaab Valley, Lamayuru Buddhist monastery, Aharbal waterfalls and Thajiwas glacier and wildlife sactuary.

If you travel further north in Kashmir, there is Ladhakh, which is very different from Kashmir and Darjeeling. Once you reach the place, you feel like you are in another part of the world. The place is so tranquil and quite that you automatically begin to relax. The lakes in Ladakh tourism are especially attractive. Some lovely lakes are Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri. Other places promoted by Ladakh tourism and which are really worth visiting are various monasteries, Moore plains, Drang Drung glacier and valleys such as Zanskar, Dha and Nubra. There are numerous religious and historic sites here as well.

While Darjeeling bathes you in lush greenery, Kashmir drowns you in a riot of colors and Ladakh is all brown, white and blue with very little greenery. To experience these diverse places for real, choose good Kashmir tour packages and packages from Ladakh tourism.
