A great deal of nature’s diversity is spread over the mountains. Mountains are a combination of nature’s generosity and beauty. Mountains are lost in the sea of thrill. The lush greenery of the hills, the fountains of song, the kaltan of the birds, the flowing of the river in the crystal clear waters, or the wandering of the beasts of the valley all enchant the mind. If a city is well-planned on such a beautiful hill, then that city also comes in contact with the existing shape of the hill towns in India.
