5. Malana, Himachal Pradesh

Malana is positioned so perfectly that no matter which side of the hill station you are in, you get a perfect view, be it that of the majestic Chandrakhani Mountains which cast their shadows over the entire hill station, the gushing Malana River as it rushes by or the Kullu Valley that lies to the north-east of Malana. With just about a hundred houses and sprawling forests as far as the eye can see, this quaint and quiet hill station is like paradise! It also offers some beautiful and challenging trekking trails!

6. Moreh, Manipur

Moreh, sandwiched between India and Myanmar, is a quaint destination to head to for celebrating Christmas and New Year. The thriving pulse of excitement in this little border town belies its size. A sizeable Christian population and an assorted motley of Kuki tribes, Burmese nationals, colourful Punjabis and Manipuri Meiteis make both New Year and Christmas a jolly good affair in this cosmopolitan town. Don’t forget to take an extra bag or two for stocking up on Burmese goodies freely available in this border town.
