Air pollution is not just an essay topic for a 2nd grader anymore but one of the deadliest killers in India today. It is the seventh biggest cause of illness and the fifth biggest cause of death toll according to the Global Burden of Disease report, released in 2013.

My solution is to run to the hills! But sadly enough even hills are also not spared from the rage of air pollution with Shimla being one of the most polluted hill stations in India.

So, if I’ve scared you enough, it’s time for you to look at some of the places in India where you can breathe in the freshest air:
