The beautiful location on the banks of the Ganga River, pleasant climate, rich cultural heritage, world-class yoga institutes, excellent camping facilities and a variety of adventure activities, including rafting and cliff jumping, make Rishikesh one of the best places to stay. Summer vacations in India for school students. This holy land provides the necessary rest from daily classroom routines and conveys knowledge of Indian culture in a sensual way.

Manali – Striking Snow Splendor
The frequent mention of Manali along with Shimla and Kullu forced me to visit Manali. I was stunned! Good elevated location (around 2,050 meters), lovely weather conditions (although there was a pinch in the air during my visit in November 2013), deodar views and pine trees with snow-capped mountains in the background simply make Manali a spectacular place to stay. fall in love with. In addition, the site offers wonderful camping bases for trekking expeditions to the Kangra, Lahaul, Spiti and Zanskar ranges. While talking to some locals, I learned that the site also witnessed a large number of students looking for adventure camps during the summer.
Dalhousie — Summer Delight
My fascination with Himachal Pradesh encouraged me to take another break. This time I chose Dalhousie, a beautiful place located 341 km from Manali. Despite the calm around me, I was greeted by the shaking of a group of teenagers. I later learned that they were students who had gone to Dalhousie during the winter school holidays. Dalhousie is on the western outskirts of the Dhauladhar Range and is a place for peace seekers and nature lovers. Because of my strange weather selection (December), I couldn’t appreciate most of the interesting things except snow fun. Dalhousie is mainly a summer delight and is an excellent mountain station for people of all age groups. Also, due to its proximity to many popular places like Khajjiar, Kalatope Sanctuary and Chamba, Dalhousie is also one of the best summer vacation ideas for school groups.
Shimla – Gateway of Himachal Pradesh
Ah! Enough talk about me and my expeditions; Let’s focus on the main theme, “summer vacation”. As I mentioned, the discussion started with selecting places for school outings in the summers and in that hot debate, a name that came up after every short break was Shimla. It is obvious that over time, Shimla has undergone many reforms in all aspects. Whether it’s connectivity to other places, attractions, number of hotels or other contemporary charms, Shimla can be called the modern face of Himachal Pradesh. But what makes it so popular that almost every school has included it on their tours has led me to do some research. And here are my post-research overruns.
Shimla is dotted with a host of popular attractions, offering school students various sightseeing options. It serves as the main gateway for excursions to other destinations such as Chail, Kufri, Kasauli, Narkanda and Rampur (the largest commercial and market area in the region). Favorable weather conditions and various recreational activities including camping.
Srinagar – Amalgamation of Beauty and Fun
When you think of summer vacation options for the North India school trip, Srinagar routinely takes the trip itinerary. A perfect fusion of natural beauty and recreational activities always fascinates the playful minds of young people. There is a lot to know about the aspect of ecotourism in Srinagar. Nehru Botanical Garden, Indira Gandhi Tulip Garden, Shalimar Bagh and many other beautiful gardens enrich your knowledge of flora in a memorable way. Likewise, bird watching, golf, horse riding, shikara rides, apple orchard leisure trips, cultural travel, excursions to destinations such as Gulmarg, Pahalgam, Yusmarg and Sonmarg are all things students can do during school trips in Srinagar.
Corbett National Park – A Distinct World of Wild
I know this may seem a little surprising, but I have included it in the list of Indian summer vacation destinations after doing the necessary homework. Enriched with varieties of flora and fauna species, a trip to Corbett National Park offers golden opportunities to experience India’s exotic biodiversity. As for school trips, the park offers special summer camps for students. Children can enjoy a wide range of fun activities such as bird watching, animal watching, fishing, trekking and river crossing during their stay.

If you want to add a touch of luxury during your stay, Corbett Leela Vilas is a great option.
Nainital – Worthy Option for Unlimited FUN
When it comes to summer vacation destinations in northern India, there are several charming mountain seasons that provide rest for our monotonous urban lifestyle. But Mrs. Joshi’s (my neighbor’s) enthusiasm for her son’s school trip to Nainital during the summer holidays surprised me. I wondered when there are so many wonderful options available, so why Nainital? But I found my answer in my niece’s simple and meaningful answer. Not only does Nainital provide a rejuvenating atmosphere, it is also very close to Delhi and other simple areas, thus reducing travel time, especially for children. For me too, it’s a plus point. The other reason for its popularity as one of the top summer school holiday destinations may be due to the availability of a large number of summer camps in the region. Camp organizers focus on the overall development of a child’s personality in a relaxed and fun environment while raising awareness of our rich biodiversity. The last, but not the least (according to my calculation) is that Nainital, compared to other faraway places, is quite affordable and most schools can easily manage an excursion to this amazing place without any embarrassment.
Coorg – An Eternal Splendor for Tired Souls
Misty hills, vast expanses of tea and coffee fields, and green views of sandalwood and teakwood forests – in my words, Coorg is simply spectacular. Adding the rustic charm are its hamlets and villages that reflect the rich cultural heritage of Karnataka. As for school trips and the fun nature of teenagers, Coorg is involved in various outdoor activities such as fishing, trekking and whitewater rafting. There is a lot to learn about coffee planting and procession in India’s coffee bowl. Nagarhole National Park is a must see attraction for people of all age groups.
Munnar – Dewy Drop Magnificence
If you are wondering where to go on summer holidays, Munnar is the perfect choice for people of all age groups. It is another emerald beauty of the treasure of Idukki district. Its elevated location (1,600 meters above sea level) at the junction of three mountain rivers gives Munnar a dew-dropping behavior. Adding beauty to this damp look are the expansive tea gardens and winding lanes that make Munnar an oasis of tranquility and eternal magnificence. Eravikulam National Park, Anamudi Peak, Chinnakanal and Anayirangal are some of the main highlights of this impressive destination. Together with them, the Munnar Tea Museum and the Pallivasal Hydroelectric Dam are great places to enrich our knowledge.
Ooty – Visual Treat of Nilgiri Hills
When it comes to the best summer vacation ideas for school groups in southern India, Ooty is the most common preference, like Shimla and Nainital in northern India. And, like other mountain resorts, it is fully loaded with natural panoramic views. Ooty is a land of beautiful scenery that is great for picnic trips and school trips like Jolly World. The hill station is dotted with distinct flora species native to the Nilgiri Mountains, and to enhance this beauty are scattered tea and coffee gardens and eucalyptus vegetation, barriers, pines and acacia trees. A ride on the historic Ooty Mountain Train, which goes through many curves, tunnels, tea plantations and deep gorges, sets it apart from other destinations.
