You can enjoy the Beauty of Nanda devi, Dronagiri top and Trishul (Highest mountain peaks of India). Skiing is the best sport if you are visiting in Winters and if in Summers trekking is the best option. The Cellphone you are carrying will be just a dummy on some points."

2. Kutch

This district of Gujarat brings to mind a unique landscape with salty marshlands and no vegetation. Situated on the Gulf of Kutch, leading to the Arabian Sea, it is also known as the Rann of Kutch. The word Kutch or Kachchh, means tortoise in Sanskrit, and interestingly the shape of the region is rather like a tortoise.

HolidayIQ Traveller Pradeep says, "You can not be a complete traveller unless you visit Kutchh. This place is full of culture, Nature and adventure. The Rann is a vast overvhelming landscape where you can get lost without a GPS. Cottage industry, handicrafts, beautiful villages, water bodies, plenty of migratory birds. It is all there. Plan to spend at least 8 days and make sure you visit the artisans working on making beautiful artifacts in their homes."

3. Kaziranga National Park

One of the largest national parks in Northern India, Ranthambore is famous for its tigers and it is the only place in India where these royal predators can be spotted in the jungle, even during the day.

HolidayIQ Traveller Arun says, "Forts and wildlife enthusiasts shall agree that this is one place which may force 'Holiday IQ' team to reconsider there grading system as this place combines two destination themes, rather three if one is of a religious frame. The fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has some unique temples besides the remarkable defence build-up. We were able to spot a couple of young tigress, with the elder of the siblings (acclaimed by the guide)as the queen of Range IV of the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. The place is economical and about three hours from Jaipur with good road network. A destination for all age groups."

Right from the drivers to the cooks, everybody is smart here. This is not like those conventional hill stations flooded with couples on their honeymoons, so it's a place for the backpackers."
