Mathura and Vrindavan- Catch some soul delight
Mathura is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna. Vrindavan, on the other hand, is where he spent his childhood and youth. Hence, both are very significant religious places to visit in north India for the Hindus. The distance between Mathura and Vrindavan is just about 12 km and both these places are known for their heritage temples.
Amritsar- A must visit city
Amritsar is a fascinating place and definitely finds its place among the best places to visit in north India. The aura of Golden Temple, amazing delicacies, and cheerful people pull tourists throughout the year.

Endowed with picturesque villages, gorgeous mountains, and panoramic glacier, Spiti Valley offers awesome and mind blowing views and is surely one of the most unconventional tourist destinations in north India. The vibrant monasteries add to the charm of the place that is already well known for offering ultimate spiritual serenity.
Nohkalikai Falls, Cherrapunji
Located near Cherrapunji, one of the wettest places on earth, Nohkalikai Falls is one of the tallest plunge waterfalls in India. Name of the falls (in Khasi language – “Jump of Ka Likai”) is linked to a legend about a local woman, Likai, who after a family tragedy became insane and jumped off the cliff next to the falls.
Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu
Sunsets don’t get much more romantic than this: journey to Kanyakumari on the southernmost tip of India at Chitra Pournami, or full moon, to see the sun setting in tandem with the moon rising. Almost entirely surrounded by water, Kanyakumari is where the Bay of Bengal meets the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea. It’s also a popular pilgrimage site, and the 3000-year-old Bhaghavathy Amman temple, perched on the sea shore, is well worth a visit.
For a quintessentially Keralan experience, spend some time cruising the enchanting backwaters of Kumarakom on a traditional houseboat. Bordered by lush, green banks, the setting is nothing short of magical. Enjoy the sounds of water lulling your boat lazily to a coconut tree-lined shore, evoking a sense of old-fashioned romance, as you enjoy the best of Keralan cuisine.
Kodagu (Coorg), Karnataka
Kodagu may be known as the Scotland of India, but as clouds of mist unfurl above the verdant, green, swirls of coffee plantations, it reveals itself as far more exotic. Breathe in the scent of fresh coffee and spices and luxuriate in Coorg’s laid-back way of life as you explore its sleepy plantations. There are also plenty of opportunities for amorous strolls due to the area’s rich birdlife and atmospheric teak and sandalwood forests.
Puducherry, Tamil Nadu
Escape from the hectic pace of modern-day Chennai in Puducherry (also sometimes Pondicherry or just Pondy). With its crumbling colonial villas and colourful leafy streets, the influences of French rule are clear to see in the French quarter. And, known as “Little Paris”, it certainly espouses some of the City of Love’s romantic charm. Take a stroll along the beach promenade for panoramic views out over the Bay of Bengal.
Dubbed the blue city for its famously cobalt-coloured buildings, Jodhpur is an irresistibly alluring destination in India’s so-called Golden Triangle. Above the city, imposing Mehrangarh Fort rises, its red-sandstone walls perched at the top of the cliff. Stay in a heritage property within the fort’s walls and look out over the city from intricately carved windows.
With its palm-tree-lined white-sand beaches overlooking the turquoise waters of the Arabian sea, the idyllic cluster of islands that make up Lakshadweep boast the country’s only coral atoll. Part of the same marine mountain range as the Maldives, the islands’ diving and snorkelling opportunities are unsurpassed, and they feel a world away from modern life, making this the ultimate honeymoon destination.
Mamallapuram, Tamil Nadu
While the town itself may be overrun with visitors, nothing can detract from the majesty of the historic structures at Mamallapuram. Carved in the seventh century, the awe-inspiring UNESCO-listed temples and sanctuaries are a spectacular sight, particularly as the sun goes down. Local sculptors in the street also give lessons on how to carve, so you could create a locket for your loved one.
Rann of Kutch, Gujarat
In the monsoon season, this white desert stretching between India and Pakistan is covered with water. But, once the water dries up, it transforms into a barren landscape of pearlescent salt flats. Visit during Rann Utsav, the festival of joy, between November and March, which brings colour, music and crowds to the land. Away from the party, the white earth here contrasts enchantingly with the clear blue skies overhead.
