HolidayIQ Reviewer Sweekruti Pradhan shares, “We were the first group to start, so I was hopeful and highly confident of catching a glimpse of a few elephants. The road inside the sanctuary was muddy, due to the heavy downpour the previous night. The jeep was very very bumpy, my friends had a few bruises due to the rough driving of the driver. We saw a few spotted deer, 3 pea-hen', 7 Indian bison and the tail of an elephant (because it was very far from the jeep). The jeep was making an enormous amount of sound and was scaring all the animals. Finally, I was happy when the ride ended...We had been to Tholpetty Wildlife Sanctuary. A day earlier I had called up the wildlife office of Wayanad to ask about the Safari timings.The safari was open, in spite of the heavy downpour.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Nilova Pande says, “The experience of driving through the serene surroundings is beautiful. You might even be lucky to sight elephants walking along the roads along with their little ones! Best time to visit would be the post-monsoon seasonRead Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Samarth Raj shares, “Experience the serene, picturesque and calming Pykara Lake ...The lake is one of the biggest and far better than the more well known Ooty lake. Pykara Lake pops into view while driving down NH 67 down from Ooty towards Gudalur. It's a huge lake between the Nilgiris and its overall length between the farthest points is approximately 31 km. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jackie O says, “We were awed by the misty covered hills Where has this jewel been hiding all my life? I am a frequent visitor to Ooty and no one has ever told me about Glenmorgan. When we were picking up spices from Ooty on this visit, the owner told us about Glenmorgan his exact words were, "it is paradise on earth". While driving back to Masinagudi where we were staying, we saw the little Glenmorgan sign and decided to check it out. The drive was simply fabulous. The roads were amazing and the views were breathtakingly beautiful. Glenmorgan is filled with tea estates and rolling hills. When we reached the main town we were really awed by the misty covered hills. We were ready to turn back when we were told to go 1 km further. We did and all I can say is 'WOW'. Lying peacefully in the foothills was one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. There is a little walkway where you can walk about or just sit and stare at the lake, which I did. We felt so close to God. It is a little cut off and you don't get the crowds like Pykara Dam gets. If you just want to spend some time with nature and reflecting on your life, Glenmorgan is the perfect place for you.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anil Mathur shares, “ Tiger Hill, Darjeeling...without a visit to Tiger Hill the visit to Darjeeling is tasteless. ...Plan a day before in advance as you have to book a tourist jeep in the evening for next day's trip. The time to depart for Tiger hill is 4 am, so be ready as the vehicle will reach sharply at 3:45 am. Before starting, the drivers make sure that sky is clear from hilltop to view the sunrise. It takes an hour or so to reach there after driving through the serpentine roads making it thrilling and enjoying. Once you are at the top you will find the whole world under your feet. Wait along with thousands of other tourists in the Glasshouse, take breakfast, chat, take selfies, inhale fresh air of the mountains and keep your fingers crossed for a clear view of the sunrise.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Vidyakar Mishra says “Darjeeling - A paradise on earth; Darjeeling, a northeastern Indian town is laden with nature's bounty aesthetic values with an augmentation of Indian Himalayan railways makes it paradise on earth. The Himalayan railways were established in 1879 and still this heritage is an exemplary human intelligence and beauty through the gigantic Himalayan ranges and waterfalls. Beautiful climate and fascinating tea garden are so soothing for a person. Rock climbing, paragliding, driving through udankhatola (virtual flying machine) are expeditions in the town. Mountaineering School, Museum, and the Zoo (which has peculiar animals) adds icing to the cake. It is a must visit hill station which happens to be a resort in English regimes. Come and Enjoy nature's bounty.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ajith Ninan shares, “One of the best waterfall near Munnar; This is an amazing fall right inside Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary! One has to reach Alampatti and contact the forest office and after paying the cost per person a guide is provided and it's approximately an hours ride. Takes about 3 hours to come back to the starting point. As we got close the view of the falls, the water gushing down and the sound was terrific. However, one can get superb bird's eye view of the majestic fall from the Marayoor Road. Looks majestic during the monsoon.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Tejender Pal shares, “ A place where you can be with ice and full masti. Totally paisa vasool. Don't forget to carry a camera to capture all natural scenery. Ice-capped mountains add beauty to that place. Take woolen clothes or clothes can be also provided in a midway or on the site also. If you like adventurous driving, this place is very good for you. Follow the traffic rules and traffic warnings for a safe journey.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Jyoti Gupta adds, “A complete wholesome fun!! We went to Rohtang pass from Manali by car in August last year. Although it's rainy season then not an ideal time to go we were lucky it didn't rain that day, otherwise the trip would have been canceled. The advantage of going in August was there was not much crowd and no traffic jams or waiting periods. (waiting when one has so much excitement ahead is one thing I cannot do). So we had this ride uphill watching beautiful green mountains in the way the snowline had receded so as we were going uphill our driver told us that all those roads we were driving on will be covered in snow in winters...Well, it was great fun an experience which brings a smile to my face and will keep bringing that smile until long time to come. Thank you, Manali.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Surabhi Palyal adds, “Surrealism personified; My trip to Rumtek will definitely be something I will remember for a long time. 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 and made us reach Rumtek exactly at 4:55 pm (The closing time is 5pm).” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sandeep Asati says, “It's an awesome place with natural beauty. Must visit if you go to Patnitop. About 22 km from Patnitop, roads are not good but you can go to the place in an hour but while driving be cautious as there is ice on the road and break does not work on ice if you're on high speed.” Read Full Review
