Quick Weekend Getaways From Delhi

Every season is enhanced in Delhi. When it's winter, the weather is so cold that you feel as though you are going to freeze. During autumn, it is difficult to find a more cool, serene atmosphere anywhere else in India. And when it is summer, it's like you are burning from within.

With temperatures that can rise to 45 degrees or more, it is no surprise that you might want to retreat to a cooler, safer place. After all, heat isn't harmless. The scorching sun can make it difficult to go about your life, and can even present some risks to your and your loved ones' health.

But you might be wondering where exactly you should go. You may be worried about which place is more convenient to travel to. Well, look no further. Here are some of the best places to vacation if you are from Delhi.


1. Mussoorie

As one of India's most popular hill stations, Mussoorie is also referred to as Queen of the Hills. A visit to Mussoorie is best during summer when it provides a welcome break from the sweltering heat.
