India may have becharmed you with its rich history, diverse culture and some really finger-licking cuisines. But do not pack your bag yet, until you have seen some of these wonderfully beautiful sites. The country with its huge share of mountains, seas and waterfalls has got no dearth of natural sites. Here are some of the most beautiful natural sites in India you must walk over to:
Dhakuri Pass, Uttaranchal
At a stupendous height of over 10k feet and surrounded by some icy glaciers and a craning Himalaya, this place is truly a ‘jannat’ (paradise). Dhakuri Pass may not be easy to access for everyone and really requires you to put on your adventure shoes, but once you surmount the barriers, what you get is poetry in snow! You will literally feel on top of the world and even the mightiest of the mountain ranges (Himalayas) can be conquered with an eye-to-eye stare!
The Silent Valley, Kerala
Kerala is a state which requires no elaborate explanation. Its natural beauty has been scripted explicitly in many a traveler’s travelogue! But this corner called ‘The Silent Valley’ takes the cherry with its virgin natural beauty and heart-rending tranquility. This place is also a trekker’s delight and a wonderful getaway for a photographer. The ecology out here is brimming with pristine plants and some rare species of wildlife. Unfortunately, the 21st century man is too callous to respect some keepsakes from the nature, and is doing his best to convert this green place into a concrete jungle. Hopefully, you would be able to pay it a visit before it lets out its final breath. Book Kerala tour package from WeAreHolidays to enjoy the real nature of Kerala.
Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh
Tawang is beautiful for more than one reason. It is located at a great height of nearly 10,000 feet; it is nestled towards the farthest end of eastern India; it is replete with wild forests and orchards; it houses some peacefully sedate Buddhist monasteries; and it is one of those rare places in India which is truly unspoiled! Walking over to this place you will justly repent at the kind of sedentary lifestyle you are leading back there in your posh metro!
Lakshwadeep is not as popular as its cousin Andaman (both located towards the southern part of India), but its beauty is just ethereal! Having less number of visitors must have allowed the island to preserve its virgin beauty, but one can be sure that this corner would enjoy a very high traffic in the years to come. With turquoise waters and some panoramic beaches sprinkled with plenty of dense woods, Lakshwadeep is like that undiscovered ‘Neverland’.
Kaziranga National Park, Assam
India has a number of wildlife parks but none comes close to Kaziranga in terms of natural beauty. The place looks right out of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’ minus the knickers-wearing mowgli. Lush water bodies and a potpourri of different animals make this place extremely panoramic. The one-horned rhino is the poster boy of this jungle, but they are always under threat from poaching! Poaching, in fact, is the biggest problem plaguing most of the wildlife parks in India! Here is hoping that a messiah-like Mowgli would arrive to put an end to this roaring menace!
