Chadar Lake, Ladakh
If you are planning a trip to Ladakh, like most of us do every year, you must include Chadar Lake in your travel itinerary.

Deep in Zanskar valley, the Chadar lake is a place you must go to at least once in your life.
Ziro Valley, Arunachal Pradesh
A picturesque valley, unlike any other, Ziro valley, is a small village in Arunachal Pradesh which has beautiful rich rice fields and breathtaking rivers. To enjoy the cultural festival even more than you would otherwise, it is recommended that you visit the valley during the month of September as you could get to experience the Ziro Music festival.
Though not as popular as the other lakes in the country, Majuli is one of the largest freshwater river islands in all of Asia. So much so, that the island is even mentioned in the Guinness World Records. As per the present conditions, the island might be absolutely immersed in the coming twenty odd years. The island is breathtakingly beautiful and while in Majuli, don’t forget to enjoy the Ali-Aye-Ligang which is a five-day cultural festival that happens in the middle of February.
Bangaram Islands, Lakshadweep
Bangaram islands is a desolate island in Lakshadweep enclosed in a blanket of breathtaking coral reef. A shallow bay surrounds the island and is four hundred kilometers from Kochi. The islands make for a perfect getaway to enjoy good quality time amidst the quiet and serenity. One of the most underrated islands of the Indian Ocean, the Bangaram Islands in Lakshadweep should definitely be on your bucket list.
India is home to many fascinating historical sites. One such important site is the Dholavira excavation in Gujarat. Even though Dholavira is not as famed as the Harappan civilization and the Indus Valley civilisation, which are the other two important historic sites in India, Dholavira is said to be much bigger than both the two. Despite the fact that Dholavira does not get it’s an adequate share of fame, the place is a fantastic insight into the prehistoric culture. Enveloped in the Rann of Kutch, Dholavira makes for an absolutely breath taking visit.
