Someone somewhere had once said, east or west Goa is the best; true that Goa is a perfect gateway in any season. Head to north Goa if you want to experience a hippie life! This is the tourist-centric region in Goa, while you should travel south to explore the stretches of unspoiled sand. You can also visit the temples, waterfalls, mosques and wildlife sanctuaries, for when you want to avoid the beaches. Don't forget to hit the beach parties during Diwali for witnessing some amazing light work.
I totally agree with the Puducherry Tourism Department, "Give time a break" when you are in this colourful town. Right from pristine beaches to awe-inspiring cultural heritage sites, Puducherry gives you a chance to spend some quality time with your loved one. Get soaked in the French architecture or enjoy an evening walk, go make most of it when you are in Puducherry. Have fun!
The world capital of Yoga, Rishikesh is located at a stone's throw away distance the sacred town of Haridwar. Apart from the spiritual side, Rishikesh has gained a popularity as a thrill-seeker's haven. When in this Himalayan town, you can go for white-water rafting on the waves of Ganges, or kayaking. Rishikesh boasts the first bungee jumping camp in India. For those who want to escape the madness of Mumbai or Delhi, Rishikesh should be definitely at the top of your list.
Sikkim is one of the most unexplored places in India. Surrounded by the magnificent Himalayas, Sikkim appeals the discerning and provides them with a myriad travel opportunities starting from the Buddhist Monasteries to the unexplored caves, pouring rapids to the cascading waterfalls. Himalayan trekking trails have gained a lot popularity and thus makes Sikkim an ideal destination for traveling with friends and family alike.
