India

India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress during the last 67 years of its Independence. India has become self-sufficient in agricultural production and is now one of the top industrialized countries in the world and one of the few nations to have gone into outer space to conquer nature for the benefit of the people. It covers an area of 3,287,590 sq. km (1,269,346 sq mi), extending from the snow-covered Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of the south. As the 7th largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinct geographical entity. Bounded by the Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west.

Lying entirely in the northern hemisphere, the mainland extends between latitudes 8° 4′ and 37° 6′ north, longitudes 68° 7′ and 97° 25′ east and measures about 3,214 km from north to south between the extreme latitudes and about 2,933 km from east to west between the extreme longitudes. It has a land frontier of about 15,200 km. The total length of the coastline of the mainland, Lakshadweep Islands and Andaman & Nicobar Islands is 7,516.6 km.

Places to Visit in India

Himachal Pradesh

Khajjiar: This beautiful place bears a very striking resemblance to Switzerland’s topography, the well known romanticizing location. Khajjar is located at the foot of Dhauladkar, in the lap of Himalayas and is 2000 meters above sea level.

Suraj Tal Lake: The Suraj Tal Lake, also known as the lake of the sun god, close to the Baralacha la pass is the third highest lake in India and the 21st highest in the world.  Beautifully clad mountain tops, glacier views, the extreme polar region conditions and pin drop silence greets you out here which is probably why you will hardly find any other soul around if you manage to trek to this lake.

Rohtang Pass: ‘Pile of corpses’ is how the literal translation is for Rohtang pass, for all the people who lost their lives while crossing the pass and yet in the recent times it has become one of the most popular tourist spot, attracting thousands of  people with its captivating beauty.

Jammu & Kashmir

Dal Lake: Dal Lake, the iconic destination of the Kashmir valley, also referred to as heaven on earth is one of the Bollywood favorite shooting sights. The mughal gardens by the lake’s shore go back to Jahangir’s reign and the shikaras, houseboats in the lake are the best way to embark upon the nature.

Pangong Lake: The Pangong Lake is one of the beautiful places visit in India. Spread over an area of about 600 sq. km, the lake is shared by India and china and 60% of it lies in the neighboring country. The alluring beauty of the lake and its natural scenic views make it seem like a landscape painted. It’s enduring to see how the lake changes colors every season due to its salinity.

Kashmir Valley: Kashmir valley is no doubt the most beautiful destinations in India. The heaven on earth tag is always linked to Kashmir for its evergreen landscapes and snow-filled mountains. Mountaineering and river rafting are good adventure activities in Kashmir.

Nubra Valley: Located about 150 km from the town of Leh is the Nubra Valley. It is also referred to as the valley of flowers, because it is covered with some really beautiful flowers during the summer months. The beautiful flowers are kind of complemented by the largely rugged terrain of the valley, as is the case with the rest of Ladakh.

Rajasthan

Jodhpur:Jodhpur is beautiful in a paradoxical kind of way. Most of Jodhpur’s terrain is barren and rugged, which makes it a quintessential desert land. It is one of the largest cities of Rajasthan, offering tourists an opportunity for memorable desert safaris. One of the best safaris you can take in Jodhpur is a Bishnoi Village Safari.

Desert of Jaisalmer: Camel Safari is one of the most memorable and delightful experiences you can have. It gives you an exclusive approach to discover colorful villages in Rajasthan. Travel through the crests and troughs of the naturally formed Sand Dunes on a camel back and experience the essence of life in the Jaisalmer region. Once the night falls gather around a campfire and enjoy a luxurious treat of cultural performances like lambada dance by the locals.

Lake Pichola: One of the highlights of the beautiful city of Udaipur, Rajasthan is Lake Pichola. The lake overlooks the Lake Palace, making for a fantastic setting is a must see place in India. Lake Pichola, like other lakes in Udaipur, was built over dams in order to serve the water and irrigation needs of the people of the city.

West Bengal

Sandakphu: Located close to Singalila National Park in West Bengal is Sandakphu, or Sandakphu, the highest peak of the region. You need to endure a moderately difficult trek in order to reach the summit, but you will be rewarded with awesome views of the Kanchenjunga Peak. There is even a small village at the top of the peak where you can find some hostels for a stay. Of course, there is nothing like camping under the starlit sky and enjoying a cool mountain breeze.

Darjeeling Tea Gardens: The lush tea gardens of Darjeeling are also among the list of beautiful places in India. Tea gardens of Darjeeling are not only known for their flavorsome tea cultivation, but also for their scenic beauty. Endless stretches of tea plants which tends to vanish with the mist, creates a magical spell on the visitors.

Goa

Dudhsagar Falls: For those who would like to see the other side of Goa, head to Dudhsagar Falls. The waterfalls are actually tiered falls about 60 km from the capital city of Panaji. According to popular legend, a princess once lived in the forests nearby the falls. She used to bathe in the pond at the base of the falls. One fine day, during her bathing session, she caught a prince watching her. In order to protect her modesty, she poured a jug of sweet milk in front of her to form as a curtain. It is believed that it is that sweet milk which pours down the falls, hence giving them a milky appearance. While you can believe that story at your peril, the fact remains that it is a gorgeous waterfall which deserves a visit.

Karnataka

Jog Falls: One of the highest waterfalls of India is the Jog Falls in Karnataka. The falls constitute four separate waterfalls, viz. Raja Fall, the Roarer, the Rocket, and Rani Fall. It is an amazing experience just to stand there and look at water coming down at full force from a height. The surrounding greenery makes the falls one of the most beautiful in India.

Nandi Hills: A small hill station about 60 km from Bangalore is Nandi Hills. Compared to other famous hill stations of Karnataka, Nandi Hills is a little less frequented, which adds to the charm of the place. It is known for its trekking opportunities and houses the ruins of a fort atop a hill.
