Need some suggestion to plan a short trip for 3-4 days!!

I am planning a short vacation with my family for 3-4 days in the month of August at a hill station in south India.

I am still not able to fix the place but the probable options would be Ooty / Kodaikanal / Munnar.

I would be travelling from my sister's place at electronic city in bangalore and we are planning to set off for the vacation on the independence day eve.

Kindly suggest the best option during that time.

I would prefer a peaceful hill station with natural beauty.

Also please suggest me some good budget hotels @ 1500/night.

Try for Wayanad; the beautiful hill station in North Kerala. It's very close to Mysore and Calicut.

Major attractions in the district of Wayanad are wild life sanctuaries, Chembra Peak, Neelimala, Meenmutty, Chethalayam falls, Pakshipathalam and Banasurasagar dam, Soochipara, Edakkal Caves, Pookode Lake, Ghat Road View etc.

Wayanad is on the Western Ghats, at an altitude of 2000 to 3000 feet, with a rainfall of around 80 inches per annum

Hi

If you have 4 days, you can also consider a combination of Coorg and Wayanad. Both places are 6 h journey from Bangalore.

Coorg to Wayanad is 3 h journey.
