The Roop Kund Trek leads to the infamous Roop Kund or mysterious skeletal lake in Uttarakhand. Crossing ice and snow, ascending a dizzy height of 16,000 ft, thin air, changing climate and hailstorms; make reaching Roop Kund one of the toughest.

Chinmay Rathore: This was really an amazing experience with this little town Gopeshwar and in this hotel. As this hotel located at the top of the town so you can not only get clear view of complete town but also the mind blowing natural sceneries of snowy mountains & greenery.

2. Kolli Hills - 70 hairpin bends and a ghost

Kolli Hills - 70 hairpin bends and a ghostsource: tamilnadu-favtourism.blogspot.com

Riding up the mountains of death and conquering 70 hairpin bends along the narrow winding road to the Kolli Hills is challenging and exciting enough. But what makes it spookier is the folklore about a maiden who lures travellers with her beauty and kills them!

Lakshman Masilamani: If you are looking for an budget base hotel than PA holiday would be ideal place to stay. They got huge place to relax we can see fully greenish everywhere. They made my trip happy. They have got complete knowledge about Kolli hills and received us with warm welcome. 

3. Rohtang Pass - Deadly mudslides and unpredictable weather

Rohtang Pass - Deadly mudslides and unpredictable weathersource: homestaymanali.in

Rohtang means pile of corpses, a name that stems from the deadly mudslides that often cover the 4,000 m-high road in the Himalayas. Rohtang’s unpredictable weather, snowstorms and avalanches add to the danger factor. 

Prashnat Oza: Situated at awesome place, cool atmosphere and nice place. It's a calm place to stay away from the hustle bustle of the town. Very well maintained with very well trained staff. Try the rooms with balconies facing the valley behind the hotel. It has a fantastic view of snow capped peaks and lush green valley.

4. Kishtwar Kailash Road - Scariest road in the world

Located in the Kishtwar District of Jammu & Kashmir, the road in some places is only wide enough for one vehicle, and in many places bordered on one side by cliffs and on the other side by a drop of hundreds of meters into the valley unprotected by guard rails. 

Aditya Dogiwal: This is the only best hotel in city for family stay. Well-structured hotel with good and polite staff. Manager is so helping. Food is hot and tasty. I loved the Wazwan dish at dinner.

The Sentinelese reject any contact with other people, and are among the last people to remain untouched by modern civilization. 

Sourav: As I wanted to stay in a beach side property in Port Blair and this was the best option to go with. Perfect location and perfect rooms. Good service and served with good attitude. Food was good. View outside the room was too good. I completely recommend this this hotel to everyone.

6. Dras - Second coldest inhabited place in the world

Situated at a distance of approximately 60 km to the west of Kargil, the destination is a small township located in the heart of valley, which is denoted by the same name. Drass, the second coldest inhabited place in the world, Oymyakon, Russia is regarded by most as the coldest permanently inhabited place on earth.

Shahnila Khan: Location and destination of hotel was fabulous. No one can find better hotel than Ab-I-Hayat Hotel in whole Jammu and Kashmir. Decent location and nice atmosphere of hotel. Services provided by the hotel was admirable. Rooms were luxurious with good quality of amenities. Great food taste with spicy flavor. 

7. Rajabhatkawa - Core area of the Buxa tiger reserve

Special permissions and passes are required to venture into Rajabhatkawa, which is the entry point for the core area of the Buxa Tiger Reserve. Forest fires in the core area, Bodo militants from Assam and poisonous weed adds to the danger of entering the core area of this reserve without proper permissions and guides.

Roopa Ramachandran: This small but efficient home-stay has some great service, wonderful Nepali cuisine and a great host. This was a stopover enroute Bagdogra from Gangtok.  This place gives you your privacy but is also attentive to your requests.

8. Stok Kangri Trek - One of the toughest treks in India

Stok Kangri Trek - One of the toughest treks in Indiasource: tourismladakh.in

The Stok Kangri trek takes you to India's highest trekking summit at 6100 mt. High altitude, steep ascent, oxygen deficiency, dry terrain, and crossing glaciers and rivers with a current that can whisk you away, makes it one of India's toughest treks. 

Kiran S: Typical Ladakhi women in their reception welcomed us on arrival. The furniture and beds in the room were clean and cosy.  The best part is oxygen cylinders in the hotel for guests who feel uneasy due to the altitude go this region. The afternoon high tea, snacks and breads were warm and delicious. The staff was quite polite.

The lake lies adjacent to the Tibetan plateau on the northern side of the Khangchengyao Mountain in North Sikkim. In ancient times, the lake remained frozen all the time and hence, there was no source of water in the area. 

Nikita Bavishi: Secluded but indeed it's worth every bit. The Manager told us to wake up at 5 am and come down in the lawn. First we thought why. So he took us out in the lawn at around 9:30 pm and being a full moon night showed us the Kanchenjunga range as silver and it would become Golden due to the sun's rays at the time of sunrise. 

10. Rafting on River Tons - Braving grade 5 rapids

Rafting on River Tons, the largest tributary of Yamuna, is considered the most challenging river rafting route in India. It offers one of the most technical river rafting expeditions and has plenty of rapids from grade 3 and 5, spaced with flat waters. 

Kanupriya Jaireth: The tent was cosy & comfortable although there wasn't much space around. It was nice of the staff to give us hot water buckets so that we could take bath & freshen up. The food at Kinner camps is really good.
