The moonlight shimmering on this lake is hauntingly surreal. Visit this place to experience it. HolidayIQ Traveller Abhishek says, "Gurudongmar Lake is the best place I ever visited. You have to stay at Lachen and wake up early at 4. The way is all hilly and suddenly you can find a flat earth. The surrounding is awesome. As it is at very high, you may have breathing problem if you stay for long. Also it was very cold place; you should have enough warm clothes and probably a windcheater as well."

2. Kaup Beach

It has a lighthouse, gorgeous sunset, cliff and is relatively secluded. What more can you really ask for?Kaup Beach, situated at a distance of 12 km from Udupi, is one of the beautiful coastal belts in India. HolidayIQ Traveller Nishitha says, "Kaup beach is very famous in Udupi. This beach is really nice and I liked it more as there was not much crowd and the place was peaceful. There is a light house in the beach we can climb up there where we can see the amazing view of the beach."
