If you are unsure about where to travel next, here are 5 offbeat domestic destinations that should be a part of your bucket list:
Jaipur is the fortress of luxury; a sea of palace windows; a voyage through history. With so many different shades and a blend of everything unique – from architectural wonders, the chaotic, colourful streets to opulent grandeur that the city reflects, the Pink City is a beautiful gateway to India’s most flamboyant state, Rajasthan. While most of us must have visited the monuments and other tourist attractions across the city to get a sneak-peek into royalty, there are so many lesser-known places that are as fascinating. When in Jaipur, do visit Anber Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Alber Hall S
Bounded by pristine Himalayan peaks and surrounded by emerald-green tea plantations, Darjeeling is rightly West Bengal’s foremost attraction. From July to September, it is high cropping time at Darjeeling’s tea estates, and the fresh and green scenery just make the state a must-visit.
The Gateway to Northeast India, Guwahati, is the capital of the most enchanting states in India, Assam. This mountain state sees less tourists as compared to the other north-eastern states, and still remains little-explored. Travellers vouch for Assam as being one of the most serene and humbling choices to get away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Mesmerising waterfalls and formidable mountain ranges make the state a natural adventure playground – a prime destination for trekking, caving and canyoning.
We all love visiting Goa, as Goa is divine in terms of scenic beauty, and is the perfect place for a dreamy vacation. During monsoons, there is much more to Goa than just those beautiful beaches and picturesque landscapes. Visiting Goa from October to December, is simply magnificent, and the real beauty and grandeur of this much-loved destination is at its height.
