Its winter views are so mesmerizing that it can easily be compared with Europe’s famous destination, Switzerland.

Auli, a gem of Uttarakhand

If enjoying the Alps like a mountain view from your resort is the ultimate for you, you don’t need to go abroad for that. All you need is to visit Auli to enjoy the stretches of mountain slopes covered with snow. It is basically a small hill station located in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, which can make your adventures worth it. So, make sure not to skip this ‘Switzerland of India’ from your bucket list.

Manipur, a jewel from the Northeast

Manipur, a small part of northeast India, is truly a jewel of the country because of its unparalleled beauty, exotic landscapes, rich wildlife and calm nature, which is something Switzerland has to offer you. This small valley surrounded by blue hills has all the qualities to enrich you with visual richness. These are some of the reasons why it is happily called the ‘Slice of Switzerland’.
