HolidayIQ traveller Ajit Wahi from Kanpur shares, “All those people who want to have a quite and eventful holiday should visit this place. Orchha, is a quite and peaceful place having a wealth of archaeology with well preserved monument dated back to 16th to 17th century. Nested on the bank of river betwa the place has a lot of stories of bundelkhand and the kings who ruled there. Must see is the fort and the light and sound show in the evening. The place has a lot of well preserved monument of late 16th to 17th century. A few good resorts, and hotels are available in the place. Orchha is just around 18 km from Jhansi which is well connected to the rest of India. The best time to visit will be rainy and winter months as the place becomes really hot in rest of the year. The people around are really helpful”

There are so many facilities, including Ayurveda which is very calming. As I only spent 2 days there, I was not able to visit all the places of historical importance. But the places that I had visited were also very beautiful. A lovely place indeed. Its a place I would definitely visit more than once, its a great place for a family vacation.”

6. Gavi

Gavi is darned with mild weather and the temperature is usually low throughout the year which makes it lazy person’s heaven.

HolidayIQ Traveller Anooj says, “If you want to be away from the maddening crowd and unwind yourself under the canopy of tropical evergreen forests, we strongly recommend Gavi in Idukki District in Kerala. Entry to Gavi is highly restricted as it is a part of the Periyar Tiger Reserve in Kerala and prior permission from the forest department is required to enter Gavi.”

7. Pondicherry

Enjoy the laid back, lazy ambiance of Pushkar and there are many cafes and an idle and relaxed culture to catch-up on a book that you couldn’t finish earlier.

HolidayIQ traveller Mandeep Singh shares, “Pushkar provides the best Aravalli has to offer. During monsoons low hanging clouds and waterfalls flowing what else can you expect from Rajasthan. Pushkar does not have much to offer as sightseeing except Brahma temple, Rangji Temple, Nag pahari and the Pushkar Lake. But has a lot to offer if you are a foodie all cuisines ranging from punjabi to italian are available here and that too at affordable prices with authentic taste. And the one not to miss is the famous Malpua opposite to Gau ghat. Market has on offer products ranging from leather goods to mystical stones and harem pants, all kind of incense and not to forget the psychedelic paintings which makes you trip with Indian trance playing around.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Praful from Agra shares, “There is not much to do in and around Binsar. However, if you are looking for some light trekking and offbeat areas to explore, then, this should be the destination for you. The best part about this place is that there is never any crowds and it is not corrupted like other hill stations where everyone is simply after your money.”
