The ancient home of the Toda Tribe, Coonoor was discovered by the British in the 19th century. The destination is frequented by tourists and travellers travelling to the Nilgiri ranges in search of solitude and adventure. HolidayIQ Traveller P Yesuthasen says, "Coonoor is where I was born and brought up so I tend to look at this holiday destination through rose tinted glasses. Notwithstanding my bias, the crowds that throng the town, not only in summer, but all year round, are testimony to its popularity."

Known for its scenic beauty, snow-clad Himalayas, and tea gardens, Darjeeling is frequented by tourists from all over the country as well as from around the world.

HolidayIQ Traveller Arnab says, "I can't give a specific reason as to why one must visit Darjeeling, it started being my favourite place ever since I visited it for the first time in 2007. Rightly termed as the Queen of Hills, this place has an amazing charm which is hard to describe in words. The best time to visit is during the winters and summers, always avoid the monsoons. October, November, March and April are the best months to get a clear view of the sunrise from Tiger Hill. "
