India’s beach party capital, Goa is the perfect destination to let loose with your squad and live out all your fantasies. There is so much to do, we don’t know where to begin. Beaches in North and Central Goa are buzzing with activity – from exhilarating water sports in the morning to wild parties that go on till dusk. If you are feeling lucky, head on down to one of the many casinos. And once you are tired of all the revelry, drive to South Goa to escape the bustle and find that much need solitude.
# A Road Trip To Ladakh
Whether you are an avid biker or a driving enthusiast, road tripping to Ladakh will be one of the best and most memorable experiences of your life. Topping the list of the most coveted road trips in India (and rightfully so), driving down the Ladakh is a sensory delight. You will be crossing jaw dropping sights at literally every few kilometers and the experiences you will have will be forever etched in your brain. Whether you are doing it solo or with your gang, a road trip to Ladakh will bring you closer to nature and leave you mesmerized.
# A Trek To Valley Of Flowers
Nestled in the West Himalayas in the mountainous state of Uttarakhand, Valley of Flowers lives up to its name and is home to over 500 species of blossoms (and that’s a conservative estimate). You’d be surprised to know that it was discovered in 1931 by three British mountaineers and is now on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The alpine flowers dot the valley in a riot of spectacular colours between the months of June and October and are a sight to behold. A trek to the valley is of moderate difficulty and a must for every nature lover.
# Sail Through Kerala’s Scenic Backwaters
God’s Own Country has so much to offer, but the one thing you shouldn’t miss is an overnight stay on a houseboat as you sail through the languid murky backwaters. Comprising serene and serpentine stretches of lakes, canals and lagoons running parallel to the coast of the Arabian Sea, the backwater regions of Kerala are amongst the most popular tourist destinations worldwide. Alappuzha, popularly known as the ‘Venice of the East’, is a sight to behold and one of the most mesmerizing trips you’d ever experience.
