It was our honeymoon destination," says Lokanuraag of Nainital, which he visited in March 2009.

"Summer was setting in Delhi and Nainital was cool even in mid-March. It is an ideal place for a couple who would like to spend some quality time together. There are lots of lakes, hills and scintillating Mother Nature. All in all, a total paradise on earth."

Sangeeta Sharma visited Kamshet with the primary objective of paragliding.

"Although we were not able to fulfil our objective, as the Wind Gods did not oblige us with currents strong enough for us to take off, the beauty of the location was enough to have made our trip a satisfying one. The lake here, like most in Maharashtra, is formed by a dam. The tranquility of the lake and the sereneness that prevailed made our stay worthwhile and we could not have thought of a better summer destination!"

I visited Kolleru lake in 2009," shares Ravi.

"Although half of it was dry when we visited (mid-summer), the number of birds that visit this place is amazing. It's baffling how so many fish, birds and humans survive on this little leftover water right through the summer."
