"I love this place. It was awesome experience with my family and friends. It was full of adventure & thrill. Rishikesh is a must watch place. I would suggest you to take a road trip to make it more memorable. There are lot of things which you can try start from camping in the valley, white water rafting, rock climbing, rappelling and I must mention if you happen to go to Rishikesh, Bungee jumping should not be missed at any cost. Apart from Bungee jumping you can also try giant swing and flying fox at Jumping Heights and feel the adrenaline rush," says HolidayIQ Traveller Reshma Manager.

Nothing is more exhilarating than camping in the wide desert expanse, under the blanket of the star-studded night sky, watching the heaven from your cozy tents.

HolidayIQ Traveller Rohit Bhumame says, “Leh is the best place to unwind. There is something magical in the air which makes it special. Whatever you are going through in the life, a trip here will get you back to your life, refreshed with a new zeal. Also, for stargazing at night from Shanti stupa. Take herbal tea and enjoy looking up at the stars.”

3. Book A Beach Vacation In Andamans

Bhangarh fort was believed to be abandoned after a sorcerer cursed the village and villagers had to flee overnight.

HolidayIQ Traveller Shivam Gupta shares, “Said to be one of the most haunting places in the world, these are the ruins of a whole town. Entry is prohibited before sunrise and after sunset. On weekends and holidays, it gets crowded and is not scary at all. But if you want to experience the thrill, go there on a normal day. The eerie silence frightens people.”


5. Treat Yourself To Some Steak And Wine In Pondicherry

The unique location of Pondicherry captured the attention of Portuguese, the Dutch, the Danes, the English and the French. Pondicherry, fondly called as ‘Pondy’, is a haven for foodies and shopaholics as well.

HolidayIQ Traveller Rohit Ak shares, “This place is blessed with beauty and cuisine. It has a Portuguese influence in almost every nook and corner of this city. Beaches are very well maintained and local cuisine will leave you asking for more especially the wood fire pizzas of the localities. Georgio's Pizzeria, Auroville is a must visit if you want to try out some delicious pastas and pizzas. People are very warm and are ready to help. Connectivity is good but if you are planning from Bangalore the roads are in bad condition for most of the stretch. Might be better by now at least. Best season to visit is during summers as the beaches are the perfect retreats and weather over there is neither too hot nor too cold”

6. Explore The Natural Beauty Of Gangtok

Unwind and shake the hustle bustle noises off your head because Gangtok would surely show you how peaceful life can be.

HolidayIQ Traveller Mahak Bajaj from Kochi shares, “Travellers must visit Gangtok as it is the capital city of such a lovely state to visit and you can admire the beauty of the nature from cable car, do paragliding. Kanchenjunga world's third tallest peak is visible from Gangtok. It looks snow white in winter. We see Nepalese and Tibetan people there. Although it's difficult to understand their language but still we made friends with them. Very kind and friendly people, they use to serve us Tea which was bit salty. It has natural scenic beauties like mountains, valley, hillside in steep tiers. One feels as if one has reached a different world, quiet and calm away from noise and traffic that we usually see in our cities. An excellent place for vacation and it's a safe city no law and order problem. Hotels and restaurants are not too expensive, easily affordable.”

7. Witness Snowfall In Manali

HolidayIQ Traveller Bhaskar Babar from Satara shares, “Huge mountains, milk like water running through streams, vast cultural variety, and good environment to leave a peacefull life. Travelling on to Manali Kullu was lifetime experience with lots of curves on rod. Rohtang pass was the extreme experience as on the rod where only we can see a state transport driver was taking reverse on a rod where there was no space at time only 2 vehicles can go side by side but he was confident and we were frightened.”

8. Go Rustic In Jaisalmer

One of Jaisalmer's most romantic qualities is the sweep of desert sand that spreads out just beyond the city. The surrounding desolate landscape reflects its stark and austere beauty.

HolidayIQ Traveller Amit Dangra from Ahmedabad shares, “Awesome city to hang out. Loved the Gadisar lake, Fort, Havelis. The fort of Jaisalmer is a breathtaking sight a massive sandcastle rising from the sandy plains like a mirage from a bygone era. No place better evokes exotic camel-train trade routes and desert mystery. Desert safari in sand dunes will be memorable forever.”
