Many of us yearn to get away (if only for a few days) from the madness of our daily lives, never ending deadlines and work commitments that chip away our time and energy. Fortunately India has plenty of remote destinations and diverse terrains where we can completely lose the track of time. Here is a list of eleven such destinations you should consider the next time you want to leave the world behind.

The Spiti Valley, located high up in the Himalayan mountains, is a cold desert in one of India's least populated regions. This place is ideal for soul searching.

4: Buddhist Monastery of Bomdilla, Arunachal Pradesh
Snow clad mountains, apple orchards and Buddhist Gompas provide the perfect setting to experience peace and tranquility.
