Summers in Delhi can be quite unbearable. Why not travel to hill stations and beat the heat? While you can surely go to Swiss Alps, considering a hillstation near NCR wouldn't be a bad option. Afterall incredible India has a lot to offer. Here is a list of five hill stations under 300km from Delhi for a quick rejuvenating vacation.

Nusa Dua, the southern most region of Bali is known for its scenic water bodies and pristine beaches. You cannot miss this little peace of heaven if you are looking for some relaxed carefree time surrounded by the beauty that would amaze you. Here is a photo blog on Nusa Dua Beach in Bali, Indonesia.
Aug 2017 Relaxed afternoon at Nusa Dua Beach, Bali. Ticked this serene place off my bucket list as I watched the waves retreating and play with the wind across the rocky limestone path. The stretch of this exotic white sand beach has a lot more to offer on your holiday. #Bali #NusaDua #Holiday #Relaxinbeach #Vacation #Indonesia #Traveladdict #Travelblogger

Right at the beach, 100 meters from the Nusa Dua Beach, there lies a spot called Waterblow. The high sea waves fill into a rock cavity and blows up with full pressure like a volcano. The waves go as high as 20 meters during high tide. Tourists flock to this place to witness the force of nature. Following is a photo story from Water Blow-

The towering Mehrangarh Fort
Built around 1460 by Rao Jodha, Mehrangarh fort towers at 410 feet above the city and is enclosed by imposing beautiful thick walls. Spread over a huge expanse, the fort houses large museums on different floors with artifacts from the past. From paintings and weapons to palanquins and queen's palace, you cannot help but marvel the astonishing pieces of History. The entry to the main complex of the fort is done through seven gates, each symbolic of victory over enemies. Here are glimpses of the majestic Mehrangarh Fort in this post:

Jai pol or gate of victory was built by Maharaja Man Singh in 1806 to celebrate his victory in a war with Jaipur and Bikaner.
|Old time charm- Jai Pol|
|Symbol of sacrifice- Sati queens' handprints|
These handprints are on the left of Loha Pol, which is the final gate into the main part of the fort complex. In 1843 the queens had immolated themselves on the funeral pyre of their husband, Maharaja Man Singh.

Armoured suit on display in museum of Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur. The majestic Fort is huge, takes more than 3hours to see. Museums are housed on different floors displaying paalki, war weapons, embroidery, artwork and life of the palace of that era. This full body armoured suit is made of iron for war. Super heavy and tough! #Rajasthan #Jodhpur #IncreddibleIndia #WarSuit #ArmourSuit #Museum #History

And hence they call it "BlueCity". Jodhpur, the princely state of Maharaja Gaja Singh, has most of the houses painted in blue. When viewed from Mehrangarh Fort, the cluster of houses look like little blue spots. #tourism #TravelBlogger #jodhpur #BlueCity #TravelMania #HistoricalFacts #HoppingTheWorld #RajasthanTour #GoldenHistory #IncredibleIndia #Tourthecountry #ExploreIndia #
