3. Dalhousie: Lush greenery, misty mountains and clouds descending on the hills, if this is what you want for your weekend then head straight to Dalhousie. The Pir Pinjal mountain range of Dalhousie is as overwhelmingly gorgeous as that of the vast meadows of Kahajjar. Uninterrupted breeze with drizzling rains and the scenic view makes for quite the picturesque setting.

Kasaul: A old favorite, this short trip from Delhi takes you across the beautiful state of Himachal Pradesh through Chandigarh, Simla and Kasaul, these places receive decent to moderate rainfall which makes them quite pleasant in this weather.
