HolidayIQ Traveller Shilpz S from Mumbai says, “Majuli Islands-I had not been aware of this fascinating place until I planned my trip to Assam, Guwahati to meet a college friend after a decade and he mentioned this place.One search for the place on google was all it took to get hooked .It is a destination spot, with a mix of wonder, amazement, respect, reverence, culture, nature & religion. If you are looking to unravel fascinating facts, about a place, about its culture, people and living, then nothing beats Majuli Island. It is the largest river Island in the world I suppose. The island has a Vaishnavite cult so visiting during Janmashtami is sure to be a visual treat.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Agniva Basu says, “Visiting havelock was a bliss. Beautiful beaches, nice resorts and very friendly localities. The sunset at Radhanagar Beach was awesome and it is considered to be one of the best beaches of India. The Kala patthar beach was calm and serene. Clean blue water and white sand makes this place a heaven on earth. The Elephanta beach was too good and the best part was the journey to Elephanta. There you can enjoy a number of water sports too including scuba and sea walking. We had a great fun with the banana ride. Whenever you go to havelock spend at least two days there. The natural beauty combined with beach activities make this place a must go.”

The tour is a mixture of long drive, trekking and sightseeing. The best part is you are viewing the water falling from some hundred meters and you can feel the true nature essence. The stairs are very adventurous and you will get a lot of food and hot beverages all through the walk.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Nikhil Bansal says, “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 the desert cannot be found. Just carry a camera and some water bottles. Have a light snack before the jeep ride. Walk barefooted on the sand and just enjoy the nature. Try to reach around 3 so that you do not miss the sunset. Roll on the sand and have fun. There are no fees as such for the visit but there is a charge for desert safari which is part of the package which follows a small dance program and dinner.”

10. Kaas Plateau, Maharashtra

The air is pleasantly cold and the blue water surrounded by the mighty Himalayas of brownish colour makes the view as if you are seeing a scenery. At night when the moon shines the water rhythms and the rays dances, the snow white peaks shine and you realise that you exist on this earth for this reason. Spend a night in the tents nearby lake for a lifetime experience.”

The calmness of the mountains and its beauty just captures your soul. There is an adventure park too. A great place for kids to hang out and have fun. It's thrilling to go on a giant wheel at top of the mountain. There is a temple with 100 steps situated at top. The scenery lets you experience its beauty. Shimla is not far from here. Kufri is a place more beautiful and peaceful from the crowded Shimla.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Rachita Biswas from Kolkata says, “I had never visited any hill station covered with such amount of snow. Truly justified with the saying "Heaven on Earth". Gulmarg is perfect pallet of bliss and solitude. There is a golf course also located here. However, the main attraction here is the Gondola cable car. There are two levels. Make sure to take both the levels. The second level takes you to more than 4000 m altitude. Both the view from that height and the Gondola ride are breathtaking.”

There are many snow peaked mountains in the area which everyone would love it. There are very few hotels at there as the place is not so crowded. So if you want to stay there then advance booking of the hotel would be a better option.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Aditya Mandloi from Indore says, “I found Pahalgam as the most beautiful, spiritual and relaxing place as compared to Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonamarg. It has the mountains, river, valleys, good hotels and what else one needs.? I truly would like to visit the place again. It's a bit crowded on weekends due to local tourists and hence please take at least 2 to 3 days for the place else you won't be able to enjoy it to the fullest. River rafting was also an overall a different experience.”

This place is kinda remote, but all efforts to reach the place is worth it, prices are a bit on the higher side, but considering its remoteness i have no complaints. One can see a lot of folks from defence here, apart from skiing, one can go for beautiful treks. In Feb the temp reached -10 and it was a real good experience. A highly recommended place for travel enthusiasts.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Shah Dura from Surat says, “We went to Manali in March end. Superb weather this time of the year. You feel being with nature. Such good place as Solang Valley gives pleasure of being in snow surrounded by trees and also good place for adventure sports in snow. Special attraction for me was way to Rohtang Pass, not the destination but all the way to reach there. Happened to meet some great local people, who made me want to go there again. If anyone planning to go there, I suggest at least four days to stay.”
