Thal, Maharashtra 402208, India
Old Portuguese forts surrounded by a shrubby terrain, Khanderi in Thal, seven kilometres from the Alibaug district of Maharashtra, and Underi near the mouth of Mumbai’s harbour, near Prong’s Lighthouse, are two fort islands whose histories date back to the 1600s. These forts have seen the Maratha and the British rule as well, and but they aren’t very talked about. Although, history buffs often find themselves walking around the walls of these forts.WHAT TO DO:Trekking the fort islands is taking that Alibaug weekend drive a bit further. Explore the drawings on the cave walls in Underi, visit the temple of Vetal, the tomb of Daud Pir, and the British-made lighthouse. The island is also accessible by a ferry.This article was first published in Travel and Leisure India South Asia. To read more stories like this one click here.

Weekend Getaways from Thal 

Best time to visit - March,April,May,October,November
Dehradun is easily one of the most popular hill stations in India. Though easily accessible by all modes of transportation, taking the road would be the best way to experience this heaven. The drive will take you through dense forests on the hilly road and if you're lucky, you might even see a wild elephant or leopard pass you by. The fresh and dewy hill air will infiltrate your lungs and put you in a great mood right away. In terms of things to see, there is Robber's Cave, a river cave formation and Sahashtradhara, which is also a stunning sight of nature consisting of sulphur springs. But more than its sights, Dehradun is the perfect place for a family getaway. After all it has everything that you could need for a relaxing holiday. The town has many vintage bookshops (Natraj Publishers, The English Book Depot), college campuses with hilly backdrops, architectural marvels (such as the Forest Research Institute), alleys filled with quaint restaurants, adventure sports gear shops and forest resorts and hotels to fit every budget. Vishranti, a resort tucked away discreetly in the Sal forests of the Doon valley, deserves a special mention for its beauty and luxury. The city is a haven for foodies as Dehradun offers a lot of variety and affordability in its cuisine. Restaurants and cafes such as Doon Darbar, renowned for devour-worthy Mughlai dishes and The Buffet for its mouthwatering burgers, cutlets and coffee, are popular options.
