Must be place for people in love with Himalayan range and Wide variety of exquisite nature. People in love with adventure will also like the place very much. Starting from small trek to Khalia top to more adventurous treks for other Himalayan glaciers as well as the trek to Nanda Devi starts from here.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Partha De Sarkar narrates, “Today we would trek from Darbau to Tip Yokama. As we we trekked for 2 hours, we came across a waterfall called Chimchar, coming out of rock. Here we assembled for lunch. Porters told us to be silent as wildlife like ibex or blue sheep followed trekkers for thrown out food. We did not see any wildlife following us but we saw a male ibex against a rock unmindful of us. Ajaz surprised us when he told us not to pitch our tents. He took us another 200 meter up the gorge and we came to a natural cave where at least forty people could take shelter. Here we would camp in the natural cave. This was the biggest natural Chadar trek cave.”

3. The Sand Dunes Of Jaisalmer

HolidayIQ Traveller Nikhil Bansal shares, “The Sam Sand Dunes are kind of the highlight of Jaisalmer. They should be on must visit places for everyone visiting Jaisalmer. Almost every hotel provides packages to visit this place. You have the option of choosing a camel ride or desert safari through jeep. The open jeep is really an awesome experience. The tyres are almost inflated which makes the journey even more adventurous. Leave most of your belongings in the jeep because things once lost in desert cannot be found. Just carry camera and some water bottles. Have a light snack before the jeep ride. Walk barefooted on sand and just enjoy the nature. Try to reach around 3 so that you do not miss the sunset. Roll on sand and have fun. There is no fees as such for the visit but there is charge for desert safari which is part of package which follows a small dance program and dinner. It cost around 1000 per person all expenses included.”

4. The Salt Marsh Of Kutch

HolidayIQ Traveller Diksha Rangnani from Mumbai shares, “You will get to see something new in India specially if you live in north India where you don't get to see so much of water. It's a city of backwater and the only and most attractive thing is the houseboat ride in the back water. Altogether a different experience where you get to stay in a boat which has all the facility they travel whole day and after sunset on the bank of river. They stop and you can enjoy night there. Gives you a feeling of cruise but yes not so cheap. 7k to 15k for a night, good for 4 people. Not heavy on pockets.”

6. The Coral Reefs Of Lakshadweep

HolidayIQ Traveller Asmita Pradhan from Mumbai shares, “This place is roughly 20 kms away from the Rameshwaram Railway Station. You can take the bus till the bus and if you wish to go further till Rama Sethu, hire a jeep or join a group of people. If you are travelling on your own vehicle, I'd advise you to take it only till Dhanuskodi beach and not further than that as the roads till Rama Sethu is still under construction. This particular place has a significance in Indian mythology and is also is closer to Sri Lankan Border. They also say that you can see one of the islands of Sri Lanka if you stand on the tip of the Island on this side.”

8. The Green Ganges Deltas Of Haldia

The smriti soudha, the hamilton school etc are some must visit places among others. Local food are nothing of special mention, however the hotel serves many delicious cuisines. We just hovered around the compound of the hotel or in the dock apart from the sightseeing sessions.”
