HolidayIQ Traveller Jitaditya says, "Challenging, enticing and bewitching, the Valley of Flowers trip in Uttarakhand has been my most memorable holiday trip so far. It was difficult for a morbid city dweller to traverse the rocky upward slope with no one in the vicinity to even enquire about my last wishes in case I slipped and descended into those Himalayan pits. Nevertheless, a successful completion of that trip also restored my faith in myself, something I needed desperately at that point of time. "

3. Munnar

The moment you set foot here, you at once know that all the praise is justified. HolidayIQ Traveller Biju says, "Munnar is a place filled with tea plantations and got a lovely natural beauty. A minimum of 3 night stay is required to cover the important locations. If you have a nice camera, you will go crazy with it.

HolidayIQ Traveller Ami says, "During our stay at Spiti, we visited various places and beautiful villages like Losar, Kaza, Tabo, Ki, Kibber, Comic, Dhankar, Langza, Laung, Chandratal Lake, Pine Valley,etc. that laid peacefully in the lap of the stupendous Himalayan range. The locals being as calm and welcoming as the mountains lured us to stay back and left us craving for more.We gazed at the colorful monasteries and breathed in the bliss it had to offer. The flaming red attire draped across the lamas and the attractive Buddha statues that stood strong and handsome in contrast to the light hues of the surrounding forming its background. The treks through the mountains and the enthralling serene lakes absorbing the reflection of the fresh blue skies and the mountains surrounding it creating captivating views that left us beguiled."


5. Darjeeling

If we ignore the chances of landslides (which are dreadful), you will not find the place like Darjeeling. Nature and its beauty crafted by man. The drivers of Darjeeling, oh my god, really great they are. We just cannot imagine and they do it."
