The famous traveller who left behind school, family and his own identity has inspired a lot of people in the world. If you haven’t read this one or already watched the movie, this is where you begin. Go ahead, sit in the lap of the Himalayas and feel how Jon Krakauer wants you to.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sanjay Jain shares, "Needless to say, Ladakh is a must-visit for the beautiful snow-capped mountains. I happened to be there first week of this May, when summer hadn't arrived. I was said that the temperatures could be below 10 deg C. But my first night there, it was 4 deg below nought. And it kept getting cooler!! ( Even snowfall on a couple of occasions) Was fun nonetheless. Visited all places worth visiting - Spituk, Patthar Sahib, Sangam, Hemis, Shey, Shang La, Khardung La, etc. Loved Pangong Lake and Hall of Fame in particular. The latter even has an adventure park where you could put yourself at test."

2. ‘A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History’s Greatest Traveler’ For Bhandardara

‘A Sense of the World: How a Blind Man Became History’s Greatest Traveler’ For Bhandardarasource: HolidayIQ

A blind man not travelling, but journeying through 250,000 miles in five continents and meeting 200 cultures will shame all your excuses for not travelling or being depressed. The dramatic landscapes of Bhandara in Maharashtra are perfect to sit through this inspiring story of James Holman, the blind traveller.

HolidayIQ Traveller Samrudha Kadam shares, “The speciality of this place is that it is still unexplored, hence you can enjoy untouched nature. No hustle bustle like other tourist places. You can enjoy the rough rustic stay with fresh air to breathe in and enchant your soul. Unfortunately, there aren't much food options available so your hotel is the only place to rely for food. Two to three days stay is required for complete experience of the place.”

3. The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy While On The Road To Kodaikanal

Written By Douglas Adams, this book is perfect for a trip to Kodaikanal. The book takes you through a crazy journey of destruction of planet Earth and hitchhiking onto a passing spacecraft. This is a perfect beginning before tripping in Kodaikanal.

HolidayIQ Traveller Deepak S shares, “Kodaikanal is the best place to visit to have a wonderful time in ur life. Its very romantic. Food was good, but u do find drumstick to be a common vegetable in sambar always. The taste was good sight seeing was awesome. Pine forest is a must visit place."

4. 'Life Of Pi’ On A Sea Journey To Andaman

How about reading an adventurous story of Pi, not surviving, but living on a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger in the middle of the ocean while the deep blue sea at Andaman stares at you? It will be a company better than none!

HolidayIQ Traveller Namrata Singh shares, “I will say it beat our expectations when we reached that place. It's a place you have not seen before and can't find a copy of that anywhere else. I will say its one of the best place on Port Blair I have seen and will love to go again. Beautiful sunset, water and hills, nature at its peak of beauty."

His Holiness Dalai Lama will strike perfect conversations with you about life, happiness and introspection. Carry this book on any solo trip and you’ll never run out of conversations with yourself. What other place can be better than Hampi for a solo trip this season though?

HolidayIQ Traveller Kumari Priya shares, “Hampi is a perfect destination for solo trip and internet free holiday. Well it's too hot over there so you can carry umbrella and sunscreen. And shoes especially as you have to walk a lot over there.”

6. ‘The Alchemist’ For Your Desert Trip To Jaisalmer

A curious child with nothing on his plate but beautiful dreams to discover what lies beyond his countryside will take you through his journey of treasure hunting in the Egyptian desert.   

HolidayIQ Traveller Parth Shah shares, “Special about Jaisalmer is Desert Safari. Best time to visit is December month. Nice place for shopping but do maximum bargain possible - more cheaper then Jodhpur. Food is nice at Killa Korner.”

7. ‘The Beach’ For A Perfect Beach Island Trip To Agatti Island

This trippy tripster will fill in all the loopholes that might make your trip incomplete. It will make you trip without any form of drugs and take you to this dreamland where you’d always want to be. The best place to experience it? Agatti Islands in Lakshadweep it is!

HolidayIQ Traveller Sandeep Kumar Saxena from Dehradun says, “Agatti Island is amazing. There were a total of 30 tourists on the whole island while we were there and for hours we had a beautiful white beach all to ourselves. The snorkelling is amazing, coral a little bleached but lots and lots of fish right in the lagoon. The most striking feature of the islands is they have serene blue lagoon and crystal clear water around them and is fringed by snow white coral sands."
