As an avid traveller, I either explore the unknown or the known destinations basis my interest! Purely with much exciting options, one would consider going away to the mountain regions such as - Shimla, Manali or Nainital as a weekend trip. But, to be honest, they are getting way too overcrowded and commercial to the bone now. Really not the kind of weekend getaways! Instead, if you really want to rejuvenate and get yourself revitalise over the weekend, it would be better staying / exploring a small town or a village in the outskirts of these towns, where you can also grab enough picturesque shots!
