With over 25 mountain ranges in its territory, India provides every desirous tourist with a plethora of options when it comes to holidaying at a hill station.

Since India is pretty huge, it can be difficult to list all the hill stations in one place, so here is a zone wise guide to the massive variety of places in the country we love. A hills holiday package is surely a bliss. Read ahead:

1. Hill Stations in North India
Characterised by buzzing touristy crowds, sprawling views of the breath taking Himalayas, luxurious resorts, adventure sports like trekking, rafting and paragliding and in some even the possibility of seeing snow in June (!!!), North Indian hill stations score well when it comes to both quantity and quality. If you think you have seen it all, go through this list and find the next place you want to visit: https://www.ixigo.com/which-are-the-popular-hill-stations-in-north-india-fq-2002542

2. Hill Stations in West India

Think West and one of the first images in your mind will be that of Rajasthan, and it might a little weird to imagine a hill station in a desert, isn't it? But hey, the west does have more than Mount Abu to offer as a hill station! Consisting mainly of the rugged Sahyadri and Konkan ranges, hill stations in India might not have the towering snow capped mountains per se, but have many caves, orchards and natural charms to offer, all set to take your breath away!
