The beautiful golden beaches, the mild February sun and the whole idea of this beach town make Gokarna a beautiful and idyllic destination. What makes it more attractive is that the colourful shacks serve great food, coupled with chilled beer and all of it hardly costs any money. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Millo says, "Gokarna main town is a mystical world that is in transition between both an ancient and a modern world. Kudle beach has been my favourite beach, apart from Om beach, Paradise beach and Moon beach. There is a lesser known cave that is really secluded and well hidden." HolidayIQ reviewer Priyanka says, "The best part of the trip was the clifftop at Kudle beach. You can see the entire sea from atop, and the view is truly mesmerising! It was the most beautiful sight I had seen in a long time."

Towering hills, breathtaking landscapes, narrow roads, waterfalls and monasteries make Tawang one of the most beautiful places on the earth. The Tibetan monastery is the largest of its kind in the country, the snow clad Sela pass and the spectacular Nuranang Waterfalls are must visits. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Sabaresh says, "Tawang is an absolute show-stopper and must-visit place if you are someone, who loves peace, solace, natural sceneries, meditation. Journey to this beautiful town is itself interesting. You need to cross Sela-pass, which is the third highest motorable road in the world. Amazing, yet, thrilling, the ride is. Once you reach, you can see the snow-clad mountains, first rays of sun hitting here, monks roaming around the city."

If you are looking to inculcate a deep-seated understanding of each other with a meaningful experience, you should explore the history and culture of the ancient ruins of Hampi together. Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami exude the rich heritage and legends of the iconic Chalukya Empire.

HolidayIQ reviewer Jyoti Sharma shares, “The colour of this place is sepia with patches of greenery around. Coconut trees, banana fields and mango trees add to the drama. The undeveloped landscape is covered with natural boulders perched upon one another defying the laws of gravity. It feels as if they are romancing in unique positions. It is one of a unique site one could ever experience in India. And the best part is, it always leaves you wondering about the story behind each boulder. These boulders are living witness of the mighty Vijayanagara Empire of the 13th century. I am awe-inspired and in love with this place.”

Spend a quiet evening in the breathtaking salt desert of Kutch where you can just sit and stare into the horizon marvelling at the fascinating landscape hearing the sounds of silence. Spend the night in pristine white tents with red hearts, under the starry sky which is an apt setting. 

HolidayIQ reviewer Apporva shares about the view of the moon over the Rann, "Initially appearing as a faint flicker of scarlet, a blood moon slowly and steadily rose from behind the clouds and over time escalated to deliver the promised view of the silver desert in the moonlight. The last time I have witnessed moonlight strong enough to cast moon shadows was in Ladakh and I dare say, the moonlight over the Great Rann blew my mind! We spent a good 4 hours out in the desert, even helped pull out an army officer's vehicle stuck in the desert, walked for miles into the unknown and took our time taking in the incredible expanse! Rann of Kutch in one word is surreal. Welcome to the 'Infinite', surpassing time, distance and everything in between."

HolidayIQ reviewer Jay shares, “If you want to spend a holiday free from city life and want peace of mind, this is the place. To indulge in adventure, try a trek which starts from Triund itself. It’s a 3 to 4- hour trek, which is perfect for beginners.” HolidayIQ reviewer Akriti says, “Take a stroll to the open markets of this place and you can see a perfect confluence of people coming from different ethnicity making the environment so full of vibrancy and warmth. The crisp mountain air and serene spots nearby are added bonus. It is a perfect shopping destination to take back home souvenirs like Tibetan singing bowls, chinaware, beautifully crafted crockery, homemade paper and jams, incense sticks, silk apparels and much more. The Dalai Lama's Temple complex and Tibet Museum are must-see places.”
