HolidayIQ Reviewer Utkarsh says, "It's a beautiful place surrounded by Nagarhole National Park and Bandipur National park. Must visit. We stayed in the bison resorts which is quite a beautiful resort. Activities you can do there are- go for a wildlife safari, tribal village walk, trekking, dinner next to river and many more sporting activities."

3. Munnar

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aishwarya shares, "The beauty of Munnar is so stunning that it's trouble believing that such place can even exist. It can not be captured in either words or photos, it can only be experienced." 

HolidayIQ Reviewer Shashank says, "Secnic landscapes, beautiful tea gardens and pleasant climate makes it one of the best destinations in India. Must visit for every traveller. A visit to the tea factory makes you aware of the tea making process and you can also taste a variety of tea flavours." 

4. Dzukou Valley

HolidayIQ Reviewer Mayank says, "We headed straight to trek the Dzukou Valley. This is a valley atop the hills which blooms exotic flowers during the monsoon season which is generally from July-September, so that's the best time to visit. We stayed there overnight in the government dormitory and lived the night with the caretakers. Carry food if you intend to stay overnight. The dormitory charges are really cheap at 50 per head per night for a common hall space."
