10 places in India that will bring shame to your foreign travel fantasies
Updated: Jan 21, 2019
Why travel to a foreign destination when you can have a better experience in India itself? Famous travel destinations abroad are undoubtedly fascinating but you can get a similar or better experience in your own country itself that too at a much lower travel cost. Posting pictures on the social networking platform is what most of the tourists are looking for, but if you are a traveller by heart you will know what I mean when I talk about going and experiencing these places.
Visit Mandi (Himachal Pradesh) instead of Scotland.
Scotland is famous for the rolling green hills, but have you ever seen Mandi in Himachal Pradesh?
Himachal Pradesh is also known as Dev Bhoomi (the land of Gods). Dev Prashar lake is one of the biggest example which proves it to be a paradise. Give it a try this vacation.
Visit Munnar (Kerela) instead of Malasiya.
Having a cup of tea and looking at those lush green tea plantations at Boh, Malaysia is probably the best feeling. Or rather you can find out how a medicine grew up as a daily beverage in Munnar, Kerela. Breath-taking sceneries with a lovely weather creates a deadly combination.
Visit Gulmarg (Kashmir) instead of Switzerland.
Before you say that there is no such place like Switzerland in the world, visit Gulmarg in Kashmir. That place cannot be described in words but the view soothes your nerves and calms your senses. Also this could turn out as a spiritual awakening trip for you.
Visit Auli (Uttarakhand) instead of Alaska.
Before you get affected by the scenic beauty of Alaska, get lost in the natural vistas of Auli in Uttarakhand. Also Auli is the place where international Skiing event was held in January last year.
Visit Ladakh (Jammu & Kashmir) instead of Australia.
The hardcore trekkers across world just wish go to overland tracks in Australia because of the killer mountain view, but trekking in Ladakh can make you experience the untouched places of an extreme terrain.
Visit Andaman islands instead of Spain.
Talking about underwater life and diving, the first place that comes to mind is Spain. But the water of Andaman will hold you for life, once you take a dive in it.
Visit Srinagar (Kashmir) instead of Amsterdam.
Before you visit to Amsterdam for the coulourful display of tulips, give a chance to mesmerizing tulips at Indira Gandhi tulip garden, Srinagar.
Visit Tarkali (maharashtra) instead of Brazil.
Remember the geography lesson from the school, India is surrounded by 3 oceans, and hence have a large number of beaches. Though Goa is the most common tourist spot, but bag-packers avoid it for the crowd. Hence the narrow stretch of Tarkarli in Maharashtra will blow you away.
So before planning a holiday to Brazil, visit Maharashtra.
Visit Bangalore instead of England.
Who does not want to live a life King size, though we laud the royalty of the Windsor castle in England. However India is also known for its royalty and rich cultural heritage. So before wondering about the Windsor castle in England, Glorify the royal treatment at Bangalore palace.
Visit Kumbalgarh (Rajasthan) instead of China.
The only man-made thing which could be seen from the moon, is the Great Wall of China, or so they say. But, give a try to the Kumbalgarh fort in Rajasthan once. Along with a great wall, this place is full of the royal culture of India.
