India is home to not just the mighty Himalayas, the greatest mountain range in the world, but also a host of other prominent mountain ranges that meander their way through its length and breadth, thus creating breathtaking landscapes and sceneries.

The seven major Indian mountain ranges — the Himalayas, Karakoram & Pir Panjal, Purvanchal Eastern mountains, Vindhya and Satpura, Aravali, Eastern and Western Ghats— then branch off to dozens of other small ranges and foothills.

While much of India’s 1.4 billion population lives in its low-lying Indo-Gangetic and Southern plains, the hill stations nestled in these mountain ranges, far away from the mayhem of its major urban landscape, provide Indians the perfect escape from the everyday strains and stress.

When life in the warm and humid plains becomes relatively exhausting, Indians for good reason, dream of treating themselves to the perfect mountain holiday at a destination ensconced somewhere in the middle of a mist-covered idyllic vale with snow-clad mountains towering above it.
At RESPLENDENT TRAVEL, we offer flexible tour packages and itineraries catered perfectly to your needs and style.

With decades of experience in the luxury travel hospitality niche, we are your companion for an ideal hill station staycation. We offer private tours to all major hill destinations across India and provide customized bespoke experiences along with 24/7 guidance and support.


Thankfully, the ideal holiday does not just have to be in the Swiss Alps, Mount Fuji, the Andes or the Pyrenees. With dozens of equally superb options to choose from, Indians are truly spoiled for choice.

Historically, the quaint old-fashioned world “hill station” springs to mind images of the Himalayas in the North, but we have compiled a diverse list of destinations that cover all geographical regions of India.
