7 Secret Tourist-Free Spots To View India's Most Famous Attractions

Tripoto

Sometimes the better vantage point is where you least expect it, because you’re better off livin’ in the hole looking at the palace, than living at the palace looking at the hole. Which is why I tracked down seven lesser-known spots for seeing some of India's biggest attractions.

1. Qutab Minar, Delhi

Best Viewing Spot: Dramz Whiskey Bar & Lounge, Mehrauli

This absolutely new chic place has arguably the best view of the Qutab Minar. Things don’t come cheap here. But the view is to die for.

World’s No.1 tourist trap, but did you know a little known prime viewing spot of the Taj Mahal exists opposite the monument on the northern shores of the Yamuna River in Agra. It is Mehtab Bagh, a centuries old garden complex, open to the public but little advertised and not easily visited for short term Agra visitors.

3. Bandra Worli Sea Link

Best Viewing Spot: Bandra Fort

Reducing commutation time between Worli, and the Suburbs of Bandra from 60-90 minutes to under 10 minutes, Sea link is definitely one of Mumbai's most enjoyed and loved attractions.

4. Nainital Lake

Best Viewing Spot: Naina Peak

Apart from Nainital Lake, from here you can also capture panorama of Himalaya's snow-laden peaks like Nanda Devi, Bandarpunch, Api and Nari.

Are these the only spots you could recommend... These are really not the top spots in terms of quality as well as satisfaction to eyes...
