    10 Splendid Places To Visit In Hampi (+ 5 Epic Things To Do)

    Did you know that Hampi was once the richest city in India with marvellous temples, trading markets and massive fortifications? It used to be one of the largest cities in the world and the capital of the Vijayanagara empire in the 14th century. However, in 1565, the Deccan Muslim rulers destroyed the city and looted its wealth leading to the fall of the Vijayanagara empire. What remains now is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the world’s largest ‘open-air’ museum. Huge boulders and archaeological ruins with a rich history mark…

    10 Unique Places To Visit in Dalhousie: Better Than Manali?

    What is common between Rabindranath Tagore, Subhash Chandra Bose and Rudyard Kipling? All of them had a common love for the peaceful climate and pleasant atmosphere of Dalhousie and spend quite some time here when it was under the control of the British empire. While Dalhousie has changed a lot since then, it still exudes an old-world charm with Victorian-style mansions surrounded by deodar and pine forests and the snow-capped Himalayas in the background.  It is also home to the mini ‘Switzerland of India’, has a thriving Tibetan culture and…

    5 Stunning Places To Visit In Gokarna In 2 Days: An Epic Guide

    ‘Let’s plan a trip to Goa.’ You have either said this statement or heard someone in your group mention it. It is probably one of the most used travel quotes in India. And it makes complete sense because Goa is the ultimate travel destination in India when it comes to beaches, partying and adventure sports. But on the flipside, Goa has also become one of the most hyped, commercial and overrated Indian travel destinations.  And if you’re anything like me, you would rather visit a place that offers all the…

    11 Best Places To Visit In Araku Valley (+Vizag): A Hidden Gem

    I went for a solo trip to this little-known hill station lying on the southeastern coast of India. As I hadn’t heard much about this place before, I didn’t have much expectation. However, after the trip, I realised how underappreciated this place was.  It blew my mind how this scenic hill station hasn’t been covered or talked about much among the traveller community in India, even today. And hence, I would like to give you an introduction to Araku Valley, also known as the Ooty of Andhra Pradesh. Famous for…

    10 Best Places To Visit In Valparai That’ll Take Your Breath Away

    After driving for close to five hours, we reached our destination at noon. It was a hill station not very far from Coimbatore. However, the first time I got out of our car to get a view of the landscapes in front of me, I had a deja vu moment. The tea gardens here, surrounded by tall mountains covered in fog, reminded me of Munnar (the famous hill station in Kerala). Yet, this place was different. There was hardly any soul here, unlike Munnar, which has become commercialised over the…

    5 Amazing Things To Do In Munroe Island: India’s Hidden Venice

    While you read this article, a tiny island in Kerala is sinking by the hour. It will submerge in water by 2050, according to experts.  If it happens, it’ll be devastating as I consider it one of Kerala’s jewels that can give any other tourist destination in ‘God’s Own Country’ a run for their money. I’m talking about Munroe Island.  It is a highly underrated and unexplored tourist destination in Kerala, known for its backwaters like Alleppey but without the crowds. While Alleppey is famous as the Venice of India,…

    5 best places to visit in Chikmagalur in 2 days

    Did you know that Chikmagalur, a small hill station in Karnataka, is responsible for bringing the coffee revolution to India? A Sufi saint called Baba Budan smuggled coffee beans from Persia in the 16th century and planted them in his garden here in Chikmagalur. Since then, Chikmagalur has been known as the coffee capital of not only Karnataka but also India before the coffee cultivations started spreading to other parts of the country. But Chikmagalur has a lot more to offer than just coffee. It is a paradise for nature…

    7 places to visit in Rameshwaram for a memorable trip

    How often do you hear water sports, ghost towns and mythology in the same line? Not so often, right? Well, these are exactly what comes to my mind when I think about Rameshwaram. A famous temple town located in Tamil Nadu, Rameshwaram is an important pilgrimage centre for the Hindu religion, much like Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh and attracts thousands of pilgrims every year. However, Rameshwaram is anything but a temple town. From white beaches to turquoise-blue waters to ruined buildings, Rameshwaram is perfect for anyone who leaves beaches and…
