Default Family Trip - 1 week , Where to go?

Hi Guys.
My dad is planning to take us to a trip for around 1 week. Some hill station preferred. Any location in India.
Have been to Manali, Shimla, Nainital, mussorie, kerela(Thekkedy, munnar) recently.
Please suggest some place ( or places ) where we can go and enjoy with family for 1 week.

Thanks in Advance
Abhinav

From the places that you have listed, looks like you have not visited North-Eastern states ... Think about Shillong or Sikkim. I have been to Shillong and its really beautiful. Sikkim I hear is another beautiful place to visit.

If beaches and islands are an option, Andaman or Lakashdeep. Both the places are on my future holiday planner.

Thanks for the suggestion.
Also Darjeeling is out of option.

Will consider Shillong and Sikkim as well.
I don't think this weather will allow me to enjoy the beaches.
Either rains or the Sun all the time.

Yes, North eastern states like Sikkim, Assam etc will be nice but I must tell you that currently its raining very heavily there, So it may spoil your vacation.
You can also try some adventerous trip like of Jim Corbett national park, I've been there and its a real adventure and it adds up if you take your own vehicle.

All the best.

EDIT: Just saw your reply.

Well rains would be there in Shillong as well, but then it rains practically all the time in Shillong. From Shillong its about 65 Kms drive to Cherapunji.

If you have been to Darjeeling, then Sikkim would be out of option too, unless you want to explore the rest of Sikkim.

I think there is some unrest in Darjeeling. So rule out Sikkim ( you go via darjeeling). Also, NE is not good during monsoon.

Some of the hill station in the western ghats are really good during monsoon. You can try Goa/Maha region like swapnagandha. You may also visit the beaches for one day.

Almora or Ranikhet or Mukteshwar, in Kumaon. Not been to any of them myself but planning to after hearing of friends' trips there in winter.

I noticed you said you have been to Nainital which is in that region too, so maybe you have seen these places already.

I went to Goa and Mumbai last month itself.

I have been to Nainital, Ranikhet and Jim Corbett in that region. Not Mukteshwar or Almore.

Ladakh or Sangla or Kinnaur or such side.

Peaceful nice places.

There must otherwise be resorts around McLeodganj or so. Nice place, and enough culture for touristy travels as well!
