HolidayIQ Traveller Priyam shares, “The town is lush green and the main attraction is the Vembanad Lake. It is a great place for bird watching. Take a walk around the bird sanctuary to spot some beautiful birds. A ferry across the lake in the evening gives you a spectacular view of the sunset and is great for spotting birds.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Jay Gupta shares, “If you want to spend a holiday free from city life and want peace of mind, this is the place. To indulge in adventure, try a trek which starts from Triund itself. It’s a 3 to 4- hour trek, which is perfect for beginners.”

HolidayIQ Traveler Meenakshi Shankar shares, “The city is poetry in motion. For me, I need the blanket called Varanasi simply because it is the detox that my soul needs. And I have been detoxing for the last decade or so. Benares is that puzzling city; a city of existence and continuity. Like Icarus to the sun, the lure is impossible to ignore. Everytime I go there, I discover a new layer - a layer that makes me pause and drink in the fill to satiate my soul. There is an invisible note that surrounds the city - and you don't have to have an ear - the haunting note slowly threads its magic onto your soul. You are caught in the legends and the lore. Captivated, you are a mere bystander as you watch age old traditions come to life.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Meenakshi Vijay shares. “Rishikesh is one of the holiest places for Hindus, which has attracted Indians and foreigners alike including the Beatles, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Kate Winslet owing to its potpourri of spiritual mysticism, yoga and adventure. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, this town and the adjoining areas along the Ganges namely Muni ki reti, the Ashrams on the east bank, Shivananda Nagar and the temple sections along the Laxman Jhula comprise what is known as Rishikesh. This town is famous for its Ashrams, temples, yoga lessons and not to mention the exciting white water rafting on the Ganges.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Swati Talwar shares her experience, “The stone carved temples with stories from Ramayana and Mahabharata, stone pillars capable of producing sounds similar to musical instruments, stone aqueducts for water supply (Rome is not the only place to have it) the first pin hole camera effect, the passive cooling systems in palaces this place has it all. I recommend that you must hire a guide and then take a tour of the place, ancient stories of the great dynasty adds to the whole effect of the place, otherwise it seems like a ruined city.”

8. Live By Yourself in Lachung
