How can we afford to travel non stop?  


Our Guest Author Himanshu, tell us where to go in the surroundings of Delhi to look for a nice environment and a cooler climate!

If you are looking for a nice relaxing getaway or perhaps that ideal honeymoon spot, why not consider going to one of quiet and peaceful hill stations where you will find yourself entranced in the tranquility and beauty of some of the most incredible places in the world. Though there are many places to visit within Delhi, I have put together a list of hill stations that are near Delhi, in the State of Uttarakhand & Himachal Pradesh, which are easily reachable by road and are not too expensive.

1. Kausani, Uttarakhand – 400km
