(TRAVPR.COM) TOURISTLINK LAUNCHES A TRIO OF PACKAGES TO VISIT INDIA'S HILL STATIONS THIS MONSOON

Touristlink launches several package deals for travelers seeking new experiences in India.

(TRAVPR.COM) INDIA - June 20th, 2012 - Touristlink.com announces the launch of a trio of packages that will take travelers to central India’s most beautiful hill stations during the upcoming monsoon season. Travelers can choose between different trips to Pachmarhi, Mahabaleshwar or Lonavala. These locations are all exquisitely beautiful during the monsoon season as the vegetation turns a verdant green and the waterfalls jump off every cliff. The packages are designed to target the local market but travelers new to India can see a side of the country that most tourists don’t see. The hill stations of India were historically high-altitude towns that were originally used by European colonialists as places to escape the summer heat.

Today the hill stations primarily serve a growing domestic clientele looking to escape both the heat and the city crowds for the weekend. The British Raj, and in particular the British Indian Army, founded perhaps 50 of the 80-odd hill stations in the Indian subcontinent. The rest were built by various Indian rulers over the centuries as places of leisure or even as permanent capitals.

Touristlink offers packages to Pachmarhi, Mahabaleshwar and Lonavala. Pachmarhi located at height of 1000 meters if known as the “Queen of Satpura” and is a crown jewel of central India. Visitors will experience breathtaking waterfalls and sunsets. Lonavala is an excellent holiday hill destination offering hiking, trekking and sight-seeing opportunities close to Mumbai. It is also a great place for tours to beautiful waterfalls, lakes, caves, historic forts and Sahyadri Peaks within the Western Ghats Range. Mahabaleshwar is known for its cool climate, boating trips, historic forts and tasty local strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, mulberries and honey. All the packages are aimed at weekenders looking to spend between 3 and 4 days.

Touristlink lets you get to know firsthand the local behind the tour you are planning or the small hotel you want to stay. It's a great resource whether you want to get off the beaten path or just want to plan your own trip. With over 5000 local experts it is perhaps the largest social marketplace connecting travelers and locals. Touristlink is managed by GotripIndia the developers of visitusa.com and the parent company of hotelkhoj.com.
