No, The Taj Mahal is not in the list. But a few other unexplored gems definitely are!
Everything in the world has its first time and travelling has all the absolute chances of converting first time to an every time experience. Getting around and across India is something everybody wants to experience once, and with this emerges the massive squad of first time explorers! The zeal to explore has been gaining its ground lately, keeping in mind the ever so enthusiastic people all around the globe.
India has a never-ending list of unique locations which are sought by passionate wanderers, who say-
“Ditch the common, get around the exclusive!”
But first, the four most spellbinding destinations picked by us are listed below, have a look-
1. MALANA– First time explorers take note; A place boasting its own sense of pride, Malana is a nucleus of hundred houses that look ancient but lively. Also known as the Republic of Malana, this quaint village in the valley of Kullu can be reached from 3 mountain passes. Surrounded by the high peaking mountains and valleys of North India, this destination entitles itself of the Greek origin. Pass through wonderful waterfalls and river streams and seek only what you explore!
2. SANDAKPHU– Darjeeling, Sikkim, Siliguri, locations like these have been traveled to quite often. But what is usually not talked about is the ‘Paradise of Trekkers’, Sandakphu, a vantage point in the Darjeeling region where some of the world’s highest peaks gaze back at you! Sounds delightful right? Sandakphu means “height of poison plant” and it’s interesting to know about the poisonous aconite plants that grow near the peak creating a breathtaking sight for the trekkers!
3. FROZEN RIVER– Adrenaline rush soaring high, drawing in the exclusivity which seldom comes easy; this ‘chadar trek’ invites you to walk the river, a frozen river! This is where the harshness of mountains merges with the cold nature of the Zanskaar River and enthralls the adventure seekers to wrap its beauty around themselves! Not too much to ask from first time explorers, is it?
4. KHAJURAHO– For first timer explorers, visiting a UNESCO world heritage site is only about gaining a deep insight of what India holds in itself. Going back all the way to 950-1050 AD and tracing the ahead-of-its-time sculptures narrates a different and an unusual aspect of intricacy. Divided into three complexes and embracing in it over 85 temples, this place mirrors ancient amazement!
