If you love mountains and nature, then a visit is very much worthy. The place has historical background. There are graves of Britishers on the mountain, who died in 1880's. And greenery surrounded. The food and activities are pretty nice, from parathas and tea to trekking, rope walk, etc”

Planning the whole trip right from the transport to the pit stops and hotel booking could be time consuming process. In group traveling there are people who will take care of the travel aspects while others will focus on the accommodation thus cutting down the stress of planning the whole itinerary.

HolidayIQ Traveller Oliver John from Chennai shares, “Goa proved to be place which releases everyone of the hustle and bustle of the busy work life. This could be attributed to the our visit during the off season time. Goa is place that has the recreation for all regardless of their age and size. One true place which knows to welcome people in style. As long as you keep yourself everyone and everything around you is wonderful. This city never sleeps and you are able to get whatever you want at whatever time you want, this is just amazing.”

Among the temples Radha Damodar, Radha Shyam Sundar and Madan Mohan temples are must visit. Kaliya Daha Ghat is a prominent place in Vrindavan. Radha Kund and Shyam Kund are the two holiest tanks in Vrindavan. Also must visits are Nand Gain and Kans Karagar.”

Traveling solo is often a challenging endeavour for most people, it’s scary but traveling with group eliminates that risk. There are people who will help and even encourage you when you’re scared to do something.

HolidayIQ Traveller Abhigyan Chakrabort from Kolkata shares, “Full of snow and sights, this chilly place has the ability to woo wanderers from distant places. Exotic view of mountains, snow capped roads with yaks treading along them and zigzag roads - all of them together sum up this place. Make sure enough woolen cloths are carried as the temperatures can dip pretty low. For food, one has to depend on the locals as this place is not near any city, but the food served is standard.”

7. Allows You To Have Unrestricted Fun
