Jaipur- Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital, is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India’s most flamboyant state.

Jodhpur- Mighty Mehrangarh, the muscular fort that towers over the Blue City of Jodhpur, is a magnificent spectacle and an architectural masterpiece. The Blue City really is blue! Modern Jodhpur stretches well beyond the city walls, but it’s the immediacy and buzz of the old Blue City.

Jaisalmer- The fort of Jaisalmer is a breathtaking sight: a massive sandcastle rising from the sandy plains like a mirage from a bygone era. Beneath the ramparts, particularly to the north, the narrow streets of the old city conceal magnificent havelis, all carved from the same golden-honey sandstone as the fort – hence Jaisalmer’s designation as the Golden City.

Udaipur- Beside shimmering Lake Pichola, with the ochre and purple ridges of the wooded Aravalli Hills stretching away in every direction, Udaipur has its magic, not just in its marvellous palaces and monuments, but in its matchless setting, the tranquillity of boat rides on the lake, the bustle of its ancient bazaars, its lively arts scene, and some lovely countryside to explore on wheels, feet or horseback.

Nainital- Crowded around a deep, green volcanic lake, Nainital is Kumaon’s largest town and favourite hill resort. It occupies a steep forested valley around the namesake lake Naini.

Leh-Ladakh- Leh, the capital of Ladakh is enchanting and hassle-free mountain-framed Leh is dotted with stupas and crumbling mud-brick houses, the Old Town is dominated by a dagger of steep rocky ridge topped by an imposing Tibetan-style palace and fort .

Best Time: November-February

Chamba-Dalhousie- Ensconced in the valley of the fast-flowing Ravi River, the capital of Chamba district is a beguiling old town with some beautiful temples, a good museum and bustling markets.

Kullu- Manali- Nestled in the lap of the majestic Himalayas, Kullu is a veritable jewel in the crown of Himachal Pradesh. Manali is a year-round magnet Trekking, climbing, mountain biking, canyoning, paragliding, rafting and skiing; and a taste of snow at Rohtang La.

Simla- Steep forested hillsides falling away in all directions, the Himachal capital is a good appetite-wetter for the awe-inspiring mountain tracts of the state’s interior. From mid-July to mid-September Simla is frequently wreathed in cloud, and in winter it often gets a carpeting of snow.

Lahaul & Spiti Valley- Lahaul is a relatively green Chandra Valley, but in the east into Spiti you pass into the rain shadow of the Great Himalaya Range.
