Kufri is an astounding hill station in the state of Himachal Pradesh. Winter is the best time to visit when the travelers can enjoy skiing on the snow clad mountains. Trekking is the best way to explore the picturesque beauty of the place.

Very short list. So many other places around Delhi to visit. There are many short weekend getaways near delhi that you don’t have to go anywhere else.

Khajuraho very boring place to visit unless you are interested in sight-seeing of temples. Nothing much to do.

I agree with you. We went to Khajuraho in a group of friends and the only fun thing we did was hiring bicycles and going sight-seeing of the place.

I’ve visited Shoja with my family twice already. We always stay at the Banjara retreat. The place is so peaceful. We had a room with a view of the Himalayas and the early morning view is so beautiful. I liked the night camps too. So much fun and good food.

I’m so glad Auli made the list. I had gone in Jan with my family. We were there for 10 days and I signed up for skiing course. The instructors are very good and patient. It was such a wonderful experience.
