Lachung is an ideal destination if you wish to just laze around and enjoy the pristine scenery. HolidayIQ Traveller Atul Tulsian from Lucknow shares, “Lachung is a destination where one can take a ride with nature at its best, I have visited most of the hills in India and found Lachung ideal for regular travelers who wants to experience of adventure as roads are not smooth but as soon you progress your journey you feels that some extraordinary natural valley is approaching to embrace you.”

2. Ziro

Ziro has its charms but when it has absolutely nothing on its list of ‘must -do’ things which is just perfect to chill with a rice beer, which is a local speciality. HolidayIQ Traveller Sunil Yadav from Sitapur shares, “An amazing experience altogether. Ziro located in mountain is so beautiful and cool. Loved the place. The Shiv Linga located on the mountain top is a must watch for sure. Beautiful scenery and a pleasing environment. It was good to be for sure.”

Beautiful beaches, a hint of spirituality and hippies culture, are some of the things that make Varkala one of the most ideal places to relax in India. HolidayIQ Traveller Jose from Achhnera shares, “Varkala is indeed a beautiful place. I recommend this destination for anyone who wants to kick back and have fun or just relax. There are so many facilities, including Ayurveda which is very calming. As I only spent 2 days there, I was not able to visit all the places of historical importance. But the places that I had visited were also very beautiful. A lovely place indeed.”

4. Gokarna

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the world - no TV, no AC or any other entertainment gadgets to distract you. Laze on the beach, take in the wonderful views and just relax. The world can function without you for a few days. HolidayIQ Traveller Soumya Reddy from Bangalore shares, “Gokarna is one of the best places to vacation and it's a favorite on my list. I can keep coming to this place for vacation and never get bugged. You can take boat to three islands located nearby and good for shopping too. If looking for a relaxed holiday, then this is the place to be.”

Set amidst imposing mountains, gushing rivers and magnificent canyons, Spiti is indeed a land of stunning beauty. HolidayIQ Traveller Aman Kishore from Delhi shares, “Its simple another world, close to your world. Another life existence, if you love to explore, see place and meet people. You have to be there. It's an amalgamation of rich culture and existence of civilization in any condition. It's about beautiful landscapes and lovely people. It's about huts which are more comfortable than any luxury resort. It's about home cooked meals and alcohol. If you are explorer, then you must go!”

Binsar is a small town in the state of Uttarakhand and is located amidst dense green forests. Binsar is also an ideal place to catch a glimpse of some of the most beautiful peaks of the mighty Himalayas. HolidayIQ Traveller Praful from Agra shares, “There is not much to do in and around Binsar. However, if you are looking for some light trekking and offbeat areas to explore, then, this should be the destination for you. The best part about this place is that there is never any crowds and it is not corrupted like other hill stations where everyone is simply after your money.”

7. Pondicherry

Take a lesson, slow down, take your time to appreciate French architecture while sipping coffee. HolidayIQ Traveller Anulal Surendran from Delhi shares, “Pondicherry is place where you can feel french culture and architecture in India. The place is very neat, calm and quiet. In a traveler's point of view, the place is collection of tourist attractions range from Indian to foreign culture.”

Gavi is darned with mild weather and the temperature is usually low throughout the year. HolidayIQ Traveller Anooj says, “If you want to be away from the maddening crowd and unwind yourself under the canopy of tropical evergreen forests, we strongly recommend Gavi in Idukki District in Kerala. Entry to Gavi is highly restricted as it is a part of the Periyar Tiger Reserve in Kerala and prior permission from the forest department is required to enter Gavi.”


9. Mount Abu

Mount Abu is the only hill station in Rajasthan and guarantees peace. HolidayIQ Traveller Chintan Prajapati from Ahmedabad shares, “Its having mountains which are directly connected to the clouds. Its having good atmosphere. Polo ground, lucky lake, sunset point, shikhar etc things are you should see. Food are much costly than elsewhere. Its double rate. Some hotels are providing good food. Food mostly contains aloo paratha. Trekking activity is good.”

10. Pushkar

Enjoy the laid back, lazy ambiance of Pushkar and there are many cafes here where you can relax and catch-up on that book you couldn’t finish earlier. HolidayIQ Traveller Mandeep Singh shares, “Pushkar provides the best Aravalli has to offer. During monsoons low hanging clouds and waterfalls flowing what else can you expect from Rajasthan. Pushkar does not have much to offer as sightseeing except Brahma temple, Rangji Temple, Nag pahari and the Pushkar Lake. But has a lot to offer if you are a foodie all cuisines ranging from punjabi to italian are available here and that too at affordable prices with authentic taste. And the one not to miss is the famous Malpua opposite to Gau ghat. Market has on offer products ranging from leather goods to mystical stones and harem pants, all kind of incense and not to forget the psychedelic paintings which makes you trip with Indian trance playing around.”
