This happens to be my very first post on the Travel Blog of Wise She, you might be familiar with me if you have visited our Beauty and Fashion Blog.
I have always been an avid traveller from inside but never really got so much of opportunity earlier. Then realized that “Nothing is going to come by its own, I’ll have to do some efforts for it” then and there my journey began.
In my words, you live only once (though many other people have said it earlier ) and you have to make the most of it. In Ranbir Kapoor’s words “Main Udna Chahti hu, Daudna Chahti hu par rukna nahi chahti”. Well here’s my list of the places that everyone should visit before they say Ba Bye, read on…
Ladakh is heaven for solo travellers and people who love adventure. The pristine clear lakes surrounded by the dry hills, freezing cold and a walk on the frozen rivers is all you need to see and experience in Ladakh. No must visit list is complete without including Ladakh.
Rann Of Kutch
Ohh yeah! I took the Amitabh Bachchan’s “Kuch din toh guzariye Gujarat mein” advert way too seriously. But seriously if you visit the Rann of Kutch you’re surely going to feel that you are in no man’s land. The feeling is wicked and weird when one sees white land till the sight! There’s one festival also which takes place in the month of October, so if you’re planning a getaway then Kutch is your way.
If you have ever thought that the heaven of earth is only Kashmir and the paradise is Switzerland then my lovely readers, Sikkim is going to give you the shock of life. The fairly unexplored region is home to some of the best scenic mountains and waterfalls and what not. Ultimate peace is what you get in the paradise of Sikkim, peace to the eyes and peace to the soul.
Mawlynnong Village, Meghalaya
Named as the cleanest village of Asia and often called as God’s own garden, this place will surely leave you awestruck. It is not a cult favorite tourist place but I have included this in my list because I really want to see the beauty of this place situated in Meghalaya. If you ever plan a trip to the North-East or Shillong to be precise, you should not come back without visiting this little village.
Being a North Indian I feel really ashamed of the fact that I have not been able to see the ancient city yet. If you want to feel the culture, spirit and beauty of Indian, Banaras is where you belong. The colorful city is beautifully clad with Ganga Ghats and little boats floating in the Holy river. The ancient architecture is commendable and looks enthralling when sun sets with the vision of Ganga Aarti.
Andaman & Nicobar Islands
Remember your geography classes? You have always named those two islands while filling the map of India. Head to Andaman & Nicobar if you look for silver sand, untouched clear waters and greens touching the sky. Enjoy some adventure activities in the sea as well.
Kolkata During Durga Pooja
Every travel freak has to visit Kolkata or Calcutta once in their lives to witness the Durga Pooja. Kolkata is anyways joyful but at the time of the Bengali festival Kolkata adapts a whole new Avatar. It is a city that loves passionately, hates even more passionately and is as joyous as a baby’s smile.
Ram Setu, Tamil Nadu
All of us have grown up listening to the Ramayana and Mahabharata, and we do remember the bridge created by Nal and Neel from India to Sri Lanka. The bridge still exists though it is geologically evolved now but it surely a must visit place to witness our history and culture. The bridge looks beautiful from air and one of the 12 Jyotirlingas is situated there so it has it’s spiritual value as well.
The fun begins here. I don’t need to say more. Like my brother says people forget their own names in Goa, it is crazy. There are many places to visit & activities such as beautiful beaches, humble beach side resorts, waterfalls, wildlife sites, water sports, street shopping, Goan cuisine is something that you must experience once in your lifetime. Well I’ll be packing my bags for Goa very soon.
Puducherry or Pondicherry whatever you’d like to call it is one of the most amazing places in India. To me it feels like our own Europe, though you won’t experience the same climate in this Union Territory but it is still a great place to explore beautiful beaches, western architecture, some amazing churches and a mind boggling fusion of multiple cuisines including Portuguese, French and Indian…
