Hill stations in India


The hill stations are high-altitude towns used especially by European colonialists, as a place of refuge to escape the blistering summer heat and dust of plains during the British Raj. They are prevalent in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent, particularly in India.

Most of the hill stations in India were developed by the British around a central mall to get respite from the oppressive summer heat. Many have picturesque lakes as their focal point, making them excellent places for boating activities.

Most of the hill stations in India are located in Jammu and Kashmir, Manipur, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim, West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Meghalaya in the Himalayas and in Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in Western ghats. Some are located in Eastern ghats Andhra Pradesh, Odisha.
