A hot favourite with adventure junkie and trekker’s paradise for a while now. This year too it retained its ‘best destination’ tag. Popular for changing landscape, gentle people, rich culture.
Maharashtra has its all in one state . The hills of the western ghats or pristine beaches like Ganapatipule, Kashid or Malvan.
Kerala- God’s own country and so it is , state with different experience whether it is coffee plantations of Munnar, valley of Wayanad, backwaters, beaches and lagoons, Kumarakom with its backwater tourism and Varkala with its virgin beaches.
Agra with the Taj Mahal never fails to appear in the first thing to see in traveller’s list . Be it for domestic or international community.
