Chopta is a must visit destination for nature lovers and those who are passionate for trekking. Plan a trek to Tungnath and Chandrashila. HolidayIQ Traveller G. Goswami shares, “Trekking to Lord Tunganath - a-three-and-half-kilometer trek on a well-built road is very exciting.”

4. Try The Local Rice Beer In Ziro

Inhabited by a local tribe called Apatanis, Ziro is known for its outdoor music festival. Try a local delicacy made with rice, which is cooked and stuffed in a hollow bamboo stem and baked on fire. Enjoy home-brewed rice beer. HolidayIQ Traveller Nabajit Paul shares, "The place is beyond beautiful with massive nature beauty. The hills in silent with the rivers singing by is the best holiday destination for friends and family. The weather is quite moderate with orange Orchard nearby to enjoy at its fullest. Perfect place for outdoors."


5. Get Lost In The Serenity Of Almora

HolidayIQ Traveller Sabyasachi Rayc from Delhi shares, "Some say that Almora has somehow lost the story as far tourists go. But has it really? Not to me at least. It has definitely lost it to the typical honeymooners and weekend hill-invaders, who intend to consider Almora more as a pass-over or en-route cross-over. But as far as I am concerned, its actually for the good. It means that the selfish ones like me get to enjoy this old town all to ourselves. Its more than 500 years old. It had its history, its legends, its paved roads, heavily carved wooden houses some of which still exists!"

6. Chase Butterflies In Pachmarhi

HolidayIQ Traveller Anupama Gupta from Delhi shares, "People must visit this place because the destination is free of city life and in between the nature lap you can enjoy life by distance from hustle and bustle of metropolitan city and good food at a very nominal rates. The must visit place is wild life sanctuary adjoining the area and it is a marvellous experience to visit the place. Amongst the jungle I have seen, the place where local residence have built the structure with wood and husk and I had a wonderful experience of sharing the cup of tea cooked on chulha. Deer and other animals are roaming here and there in that place. I can't forget that experience in my life. There is one place in jungle where lot and lot of butterflies are there and the scene still mesmerises me."

7. Chill Out In Matheran

Motor vehicles are banned from entering Matheran. It’s only accessible by foot or on horseback, and the latter is a fun way to explore its lush landscape, which is dotted with waterfalls and streams. HolidayIQ Traveller Senta Pereira from Mumbai shares, "Matheran is a beautiful place to relax, we went in may this year. the monkeys are a troublesome lot. the whole batch landed on our hotel roof and snatched away whatever food they saw. it was a frightening experience as we thought they may attack us as well, the hotel food and location was good. overall it was a delightful experience."

8. Enjoy Cheap Chinese Food And Practice Yoga In Dharamshala

Yoga classes are also organized at McLeod Ganj. Sehaj Yog is meditation classes are most popular."

HolidayIQ Traveller Piyush Agarwal from Roorkee says, “The beauty of Dhanaulti lies in the hills that surround it, making it a peaceful and serene place. It is just a few kilometres from Mussoorie. If you are looking to spend a short time with your friends or with your better half, you should go for it. There are beautiful apple orchards and perfect eco-huts. There is an eco-park which is a must-visit. From an end of the eco-park, you can see the distant snow-capped mountains. One thing that you must do is shout your name and hear the beautiful echos from the nearby hills. Weather is very pleasant. I visited the place in September and it was not too cold. But, you can enjoy the snowfall if you visit in December-January. The gorgeous landscape will steal your breath.”

10. Seek Divine Assistance In Reckong-Peo

HolidayIQ Traveller Kshitij Deopa from Delhi shares, “If you want to go to a place where no one visits, visit Peo. Peo is the place for explorers though there are many tourists at the time of 'Kinnaur Kailash' season. Eight hours journey from Shimla, beautiful mountains and parts of River Satluj. The view is much better than Mussoorie, Shimla, Nainital, Mt. Abu and the place is worth visiting and living in its tranquil nature.”
