Rent A Car And Take A Road Trip Across Coastal Indiasource:

Probably the best way to experience India is on it's roads. The fancy new highways, the interior roads, the small towns along the way, landscapes that soothe the eyes and smiles that pacify the soul. You have to see this before you grow up!

HolidayIQ Traveller Ganesh shares, "According to me travelling by car on this route is most fantastic experience. The road crosses many rivers and mountains and many beautiful temples and waterfall."

2. Camp Under The Stars At Kinner Camps, Sangla

Camp Under The Stars At Kinner Camps, Sanglasource:

There's nothing like going to the Himalayas and lying down under a sky full of stars. Well, it's wacky because it's damn cold but it'll shape a lot of your life's perspective. You need that before you turn 25. 

HolidayIQ Traveller Snjeev Sharma shares, “The Baspa River flows between the camps and the mountains and the gushing sound of water is clearly audible at all times. The camps are on an elevation from the river for safety, so the river is not visible but it is very near and needs a walk of about 3-4 minutes (100 metres or so). The food is good and is served in a common area which is also beautiful. And one can also sit in complete open near bonfire. The trek they arranged for us, river crossing, were great. They gave us ample time and suggestions on where to go and what to do.”

3. Backpack Across Spiti Valley

It's scary to just pack your bags and leave and you need to do that to make the most of your life. You will have the craziest bit of fun and you'll grow up.

HolidayIQ Traveller Shekhar Verma from Jaipur shares, "The dramatic change in terrain starts the moment you are over the rohtang pass. The deep valley of chandra river on one side and snow clad mountains on the other give you a feeling of being on a different planet. The gradual absence of any form of vegitation is striking. Climbing the lofty heights of Kunzum pass (14500 ft) you feel as if you have reached the skies. The great sculptures carved by the wind and snow over hurdreds of years on the side of the river & the small villages dominated by buddhist religious symbols are a sight to behold. The oldest monastry at Tabo is worth seeing. places to stay are at Losar,Kaza and Tabo. The famous mummy of a monk at Gyu is near Tabo."

Do The Dodital Trek In Uttarakhandsource:

HolidayIQ Traveller Ashwin shares, “This is where the Ganges River originates and it is called Bhagirathi in that region. We began our 19 km-long trek from Gangotri and by evening, we managed to reach a place called Chirwasa - its place at Bhagirathi Valley. During the night, it got really cold and we could see some of the most reputed peaks of the country - Gangotri 1, 2, 3 and Bhagirathi 1, 2, 3. The icing of the cake, glowing like a crown, was the Shivling Peak. Next day, we started early morning to reach Gaumukh. On the way, we experienced a 500 metre-long landslide prone area where we had to run and cross missing the falling stones. Finally, in a few hours, we reached Gangotri. Trust me guys, I have never seen something so beautiful. This time we were not seeing a mountain covered with ice; this time it was mountain of ice and my first-ever glacier experience - it was simply jaw-dropping beauty.”

Celebrate The Rann Utsavsource:

Buy painted pottery, wooden carvings, chaniya choli with hand embroidery, mirror work and bandhini in vibrant colours. Apart from all this, do not miss to take a ride around the city in the Chhakdas. They are colourful modes of transport, which are like a cross between a semi-covered motorcycle and an auto rickshaw.”
