This is not all as August 2017 is been really a blessing to all working people like us. In the 4th week, there is holiday on 25th (Friday) for Ganesh Chaturthi followed by the weekend. So you can plan a short weekend during these three days and head to Mussoorie or Haridwar or Shimla. You can also check tourist spots and activity offerings of these places before deciding for one.

If you are not sure about the destination yet then don’t worry. You still have plenty of time for that. But don’t be very lazy in deciding as many travelers are going to hit these holidays. So, there will be a rush for hotel rooms in the traditional vacation places. To stay at your price, plan your vacation in time and book hotels in advance.
