Lovely place for a short weekend getaways and ease to access well connected by roads and train ways. We get lovely food to eat mostly non veg. Lot to drink that also in subsidies rate. There are beautiful beaches to spend evenings and day full of joy and refreshments. Water sports are available. Horse and camel rides for the kids There are few good churches and temple too.

3. Experience The Highest Motorable Road In India At Khardungla

HolidayIQ traveller Abhijit Sarkar from Bellary shares, “Dream come true to stand at the highest motorable road of the world. Feel really thrilling although a bit tough to breath. It's only 40 km from Leh but the roads take you up slowly as we become more acclimatized as we move up. Hats of to bikers who scale this road and it's only possible who dares. Met many women bikers who trailed along with us to the top and we really feel proud when we shake hands with them at the top. Yes one has to be mentally prepared / physically acclimatized to start this journey.”

HolidayIQ traveller Atin Mukherjee shares, “It is really an enjoying go from Siliguri to Darjeeling. The first sight of mountains from car windows would sooth your mind. When you reach near the city Darjeeling, the spectacular view of white snow covered Kanchenjunga would tempt you to catch it with your hand and hot Darjeeling tea at one hand and camera in the other would give you the feelings of adventure. You can choose optional visit to Mirik and/or Pasupati market while travelling to or from Darjeeling.”

HolidayIQ traveller Amit Roy from Jaunpur shares, “This is indeed one of the most beautiful places on earth. Beauty in a variety of forms snowy peaks and craggy mountains, sloping meadows, terraced fields, winding river valleys with sparkling blue water, greens of every shade, wildflowers and flowering trees, birds and bees. I went there with my family on a vacation. We reach there by train from Kolkata-New Jalpaiguri. Then by a taxi to Gangtok it could cost you around 150 per head. We visited some of the places like Changu lake and Nathula Pass, Yumthang Valley, Kanchenjunga. The view of Kanchenjunga mountain from Pelling is superb. You will feel its only few kms from your hotel if you view it from your hotel balcony. Moreover the whole Sikkim is a awesome adventurous place One thing that you would observe while you are in Gangtok is that. It has a market which is not very big but can Boast big in terms of cleanliness, the innovativeness, and the beauty. If you really love nature, and would like to be a part of it then Sikkim should not disappoint you.”

6. Challenge Yourself On The Treacherous Roads Of Tawang


source: team-bhp.com

HolidayIQ traveller Arindam Chakraborty from Kolkata shares, “Tawang is almost 600 km from Guwahati and you should take two days in between to reach here. We have taken 1st night halt at Tezpur & next night halt at dirang. It will help in acclimation with the height. On the way to Tawang you will cross Sela pass at 13200 ft and then again descend to Tawang at 10000 ft. The best time to visit is in Sept- Nov or Apr- May but you can also visit in Dec or early Jan if you want to experience crystal clear sky with snow. In late Jan - Mar it is not recommended because of chance of heavy snow fall you will not be able to visit many places. From June- Aug also it is not recommended for heavy rainfall. The roads has lots of turns, hairpin bends and steep ascending. The roads are very bad in most of the places but you can forget the pain by enjoying the beauty of the surrounding. The Inner line permit is required and it can be arranged easily from Kolkata, Guwahati or Tezpur. You will need another permit to visit Bumla Pass at 15700 ft the Indo China border. The same had to be arranged from Tawang only. The driver of the car helps in getting the same. The cost of obtaining the same along with the form fee is Rs 70. But if you don't want to go into the trouble of going twice to DM office & twice to military office you can ask the driver or the hotel to make it and they will do the same for Rs 500. Also one thing to note that if you have hired car from Assam and it does not have Arunachal Permit then it will not be allowed to visit Bumla pass and you need to hire local car separately whereas your hired car for the trip will sit idle. The trip to Bumla pass is a memorable one for the beauty on its way and also for the adventure on the road. Its around 40 km from Tawang but after 10 km from Tawang the road ends and you will travel through rocky, bumpy and sometimes icy ways through mountain. On the same trip will get to see Madhuri Lake & Ptso lake.”

7. Bask In The Beauty Of Pamban Bridge In Rameshwaram

HolidayIQ traveller Shijo Thomas from Bangalore shares, “As you enter Rameshwaram from mainland Tamil Nadu, Pamban bridge is an awesome view. You can not stop the temptation to stop your vehicle and click few pics. Boats all around, sea in different colour layers of green to blue visible distinctly. Then comes Kalam's samadhi on the way to Ramanathaswamy temple which is right on the beach and devotees take dip in the sea before entering the temple. Lot of small hotels available close to the temple. Hotel Tamilnadu is the nearest decent restaurant.”

HolidayIQ traveller Digesh Patel from Surat shares, “Ladakh should be on the top of every traveller's list. It is must to visit this place, especially by road from Manali which is around 475 km. There are many attractions here and very good accommodation too. 5 nights are enough. Must not miss any sightseeing location. Your journey may be long and tiring but it's worth its every bit. The best place in Ladakh, according to me is Pangong Lake. Wish I could build a house there and stay there.”
