HolidayIQ Reviewer Megha Gupta says, “Calm, serene and a relaxed trip. We were a group of 8 friends, from Bangalore. We booked a vehicle to reach Coorg from Bangalore. The journey was quite interesting with lot of fun and adventure. Coorg is beautiful.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aranha Ag adds, “Best sunset view. This is the spot where the local ruler used to watch sunset. Except for a small structure, there is nothing much to see but the panoramic view of the surrounding area is awesome. ”

2. Ooty

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhinav Pathak shares, “A beautiful experience! I am a college student. Me and my 4 friends made a plan to visit Ooty and what a great trip it was. We have been to many places but out of them we enjoyed the Ooty Lake most. ”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhinav Sahu says, “Mesmerizing Mountains! I and my few college friends planned to go to Ooty as it is near from our college. We went there by train and bus and while returning we took the toy train. We visited several places there but among them one was Dolphin's Nose point. It is called Dolphin's Nose because the tip of the mountains looks like it and we can see gigantic mountains left and right of it. ”

3. Lonavala

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shalini Trivikram says, “The hills beyond the waterfall stream are covered by dense forest. So fresh and cool air is always there. Invigorating indeed! A beautiful waterfall situated about 22 km away from Kalpetta.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Muhammed Sharukh says, “Best way to spend Sunday close to nature with friends. Best Time To Trek 07:00 am - 02:00 pm.”


5. Manali

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aditya Kothari says, “This is a great place for snow lovers. Usually you are recommended to wear warm jackets, gloves and might rent gum boots on spot. A car won't go a lot ahead if there's snow fall, you need to walk about 2 Kms up the hill to see the real snow point or you can always enjoy the snow anywhere on your path.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Lovverma adds, “Diving ieep into old Manali. Manali indeed a paradise for young budding travellers, as the life there is surrendering the daytime) & rocking (in the late hours.”

6. Kodaikanal

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vamsi Krishna K shares, “This place has different boat services available but I would suggest self peddled boat for couples. The place is so calm and quiet that it's really very difficult to find a place more romantic than this, but unfortunately I visited this place with my friends.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Santosh Ks adds, “Indeed an awesome Kodaikanal trip with friends. We(group of 7 people) went to Kodaikanal on January 1st 2015. It is an odd season. But as none of us had visited this place earlier, we thought we will go to this place for new year.”

7. Gangtok

HolidayIQ Reviewer Surabhi Palyal says, “My trip to Rumtek will definitely be something I will remember for long. Since we were exploring Gangtok in a hired vehicle and had made some changes in the itinerary on our own, we were behind schedule to reach Rumtek. Somehow, our driver, rashly exhibiting his amazing driving skills made us reach Rumtek exactly at 4. 55 pm(the closing time is 5pm). I, with my friends made the quickest sprint to the top of the monastery and God knows, this was the fastest that I ever ran!”

8. Hampi

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sridevi says, "Beautiful and enchanting trip. Good to go as a family or with a group. Make sure the trip is done not during the hot months. And be ready for a lot of walking." 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Meenakshi adds, "Hampi, a live example of India's rich heritage and a must visit no matter which part of India you belong to! Wonderful and unbelievable sculptures, temples, remains of this vast Vijayanagar Empire are a treat for art lovers and explorers."
