Travel India Passionate Romantic Destinations Lakshmi Sharath

High on the Hills: Kanatal
White misty peaks do a peek-a-boo with the clouds. Sun-kissed mountains. Flowers at my feet and birds in the air. Kanatal is not just another town nestled somewhere in Uttarakhand. Its charm lies in the fact that it is delightfully non-existent to the tourist. If silence is your way of celebrating romance, then this town near Dehradun should be on your itinerary. One more thing – go for long walks with the deodars for company.
