A suburb of Dharamsala, Mcleodganj is famed for its natural wonders and surreal climate. This is one of those rare places in India where you need not travel with a group to enjoy. The region’s beauty is enough to keep you captivated throughout your stay. Mcleodganj is also known as a Tibetan hotspot. The place houses many Buddhists sites, including the Dalai Lama Temple, Nechung Monastery, Mani Lhakhang Stupa and Namgyal Monastery.
One of the best ways to make the most of your time here, in Mcleodganj, is to take a boat ride on the Dal Lake or a trek to the Triund Hill that overlooks the ever-fascinating Dhauladhar Mountain Range.

A year-round destination, Coorg is Karnataka’s gem studded in its crown. The scenic hill station enjoys a mild weather all through the year, which makes it one of the best choices for leisure travelers like me. Besides its amazing weather and rich flora and fauna, there’s so much to explore, especially the Madikeri Fort, Abbey Falls, Iruppu Falls, and Cauvery Nisargadhama, Bylakuppe Temple and Omkareshwara Temple. Reaching Coorg, again, is quite easy. The hill station is well connected with the rest of the country. The best way to reach is by taking a bus or hiring a taxi from Mysore or Bangalore.
The holy city of Varanasi, or otherwise known as Banaras, the place has its own beauty and charm to admire. Nestled on the banks of the river Ganga in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Varanasi has deep associations with not only Hinduism, but Jainism and Buddhism as well. The city is also a home to some of India’s most esteemed Hindu temples in the country, including the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple and Durga Temple. Varanasi’s ghats or embankments are also some of the city’s allures. Thousands of pilgrims perform ablution rituals here, on the ghats, on a daily basis. Some of them also serve as cremation sites for the deceased. For it is believed that those who are cremated here, on the ghats of Varanasi, find salvation after death.
Varanasi again, is very easily accessible. There are a number of flights and trains that run between Varanasi and the rest of India. You can also reach the city via road connect.
