HolidayIQ Reviewer Anen khiam adds, “Beautiful mountain scenery, high mountains with the peaks covered in clouds, with snow-covered tops. Thundering white waterfalls from a high mountain and serpentine roads leading high up to the destination makes you forget everything and it makes it worthwhile the visit.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rahul Chatterjee says, “The view from the road of the valley was spectacular. Overall a good place to be there and one can enjoy nature and feel the fresh air. It is recommended to go at sunrise as the view is breathtaking.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Poonam Rodrigues says, “A beautiful experience with a quaint landscape overlooking the valleys and hills of Ooty and the train journey was so wonderful. It was a pleasant experience that we had and we enjoyed it tremendously. We felt that it should go on and on as it was a wonderful experience with all the tunnels, the trees, the slopes, valleys and the mountain tops as well as the mountainous terrain on which the railway was built was also amazing!

HolidayIQ Reviewer Samarth Raj shares, “If you are fortunate, you can find yourself above the clouds on some days during the day with sunlight making the clouds look like cotton balls floating around. Imagine the view!

HolidayIQ Reviewer Binay Mohanty adds, “It's a treat to anyone's eyes. You can hear the word 'whoa' being uttered by fellow visitors the moment gates open and you get the very first glimpse of the Taj. The moment you notice Taj you will have a feeling as if it's a painting on the sky. The nearer you go to it, you feel it moves away, a kind of optical illusion.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Niraj Shah says, “It is jaw-droppingly beautiful, a must visit if you can find the time.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Latash Khan shares, “Take a dip into the saga of the most romantic place culled out from no friction but fact and unfurl a saga of pure, pious love. The Taj is pinkish in the morning, looks milky in the evening and golden when the moon shines and the intermediary variants during different hours of the day and during the different seasons in a year.

4. Udaipur

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq adds, “An intelligent fusion of the Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles, and was built on a hill top that gives a panoramic view of the city and its surrounding....The complex provides a fine view of the lake and the Udaipur city from its upper terraces.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq adds, “At the bank, it offers beautiful sunset view and the backdrop of the lake is quite scenic. The Royal structures within the lake and the township close to the lake shore creates a very sensational view at the time of sunset.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ria Das adds, “The spectacular view of the plantation amazed me. The sun was playing with the clouds and our jeep was playing and romancing the bends of the road uphill. The road was very rough and patchy with stones. We crossed some beautiful streams and waterfall.”

6. Jaipur

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anuradha Manjul shares, “One can see a beautiful blend of Hindu Rajput style (domed canopies, fluted pillars, lotus and floral patterns) and Mughal style (stone inlay filigree work, arches) architecture in Hawa Mahal.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sukhvinder Kaur says, “Foundation of Amber Palace was laid by the king Man Singh and was completed during the regime of King Jai Singh II. Summer Palace had a beautiful cooling technique. Two side tombs were used as water reservoirs, which were connected to a water pipeline. The gates had Khus curtains, which used to remain wet with water constantly poured on them through the holes in the water pipe installed on top.

7. Gangtok

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rajendra Makharia adds, “Changu is located in the middle of snow-covered mountains on the road to Nathula at 14500 feet (open to Indian visitors only on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), on the Indo-Chinese border where you can wave at Chinese soldiers on the other side. Fortunately, it was a bright sunny day with clear skies. We were able to get a perfectly unobstructed view of the snow covered mountains and the lake area.

8. Darjeeling

HolidayIQ Reviewer Anil Mathur adds, “Without salt food is tasteless, without a visit to Tiger Hill the visit to Darjeeling is tasteless. Once you are at the top you will find the whole world under your feet.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Samrat Gupta says, “If you have no belief in magic, a sunrise and sunset over the misty mountains and mighty snow capped Kanchenjunga with the sky changing colours every moment will surely make you feel heavenly.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Husain Parvez adds, “The romantic Himalayan Railway, DHR, is a world heritage site and a man made wonder. The journey from Jalpaiguri to Darjeeling is an unforgettable experience passing through the majestic Himalayas, Tea Gardens, Misty Mountains, Green Forests and Deep Ravines.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Muhammad Aqib shares, “It was romantic especially the boat ride and then the music at Zabarwaan. I suggest the travellers spare some time and go full Dal sightseeing - it will take 2-3 hours but it will be worth more. The best time for whole sightseeing and shikara ride is in the evening. However, at later evening under lights, the lake appears very beautiful.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rahul Pratap Singh shares, “I was very impressed by the beautifully landscaped park. I have visited many botanical gardens, but when thus Tulip garden brags, "the most beautiful spring garden in the world after the Keukenhof - Amsterdam" to be, you can believe the well.”

10. Nainital

HolidayIQ Reviewer Samriddha Roy shares, “The entire town of Nainital is a region of lakes - where Naini lake forms the core accompanied by its cousin lakes like the Garur tal, the twin lakes of Sita-Ram tal, the Bhim tal, the Hanuman tal and the Naukuchia tal, each providing a distinct and an exquisite view of its own. High above in the hills of about 3000 ft, lies this eccentric lake, the blue bean shaped water body that stands apart amidst the lush green stretched everywhere and across its surface floats teeny colourful toy-like boats painting the city with every shades and hue of nature. Even a glimpse of this sight can give one an ecstasy of tasting paradise.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Hemant Shekhar Rathore shares, “It is a great place for newlyweds and couples. One can see a lot of couples around.
