Nowadays we all are missing about travelling. I believe that all limitations are temporary, and soon we will be living our usual life 🙏.
Recently, we have travelled around India for about 2 months and visited 15 cities. In this article, I prepare for you the top 6 places in India which you should see and what to do there. Enjoy 😉
Isha is a yoga and meditation centre. They provide a lot of programs, which allow you to live in ashram and volunteering, practice yoga, meditate and healing. Or you can just come for a day, and visit Dhyanalinga, 112 Feet Adiyogi and other nice places. About the centre read here.
We have taken the Ayur Sampoorna program in Isha Rejunivation Centre. And it was gorgeous 🥰. The staff provided a high level of treatment 🙏. We had a busy schedule: yoga and meditation practics, visiting sacred placed, swimming in Suryakund, nature walking, even stayed under the waterfall 😊. The best thing what I have enjoyed was Ayurvedic therapies. I have never experienced such good treatment of my body 🤗😍. Moreover, food in Rejunivation Centre is something absolutely special 🤤.
After one week I felt myself so balanced, calm and relieved. This experience is definitely worth to repeat.
Munnar is an absolutely astonishing and calm place. There are big tea plantations, picturesque views and friendly people. Also, they have tea museum and factories which we did not manage to visit because nature was more attractive 😋
It is better to book a hotel near Munnar, due to the most beautiful tea plantations are situated 15 km from Munnar. You can easily take the bus to the city – all busses which you see you can take 😉. Cost 17 INR (0.22$), duration 15 minutes.
You can go walk around tea plantation by yourself and enjoy picturesque views for free. But if you want excursion with a local guide it will cost about 1500 INR (20$) for 5 hours.
If you plan to go to Munnar from Aluva, you should definitely take the local bus with open windows. Sounds strange? Yeah, BUT☝️ you get marvellous “excursion” for 4 hours only for 115 INR (1.5$). The views on the road to Munnar are astonishing 😍.
Goa is the name of a big region which has a lot of beaches. The cost of staying is varied from the south to the north. Our “middle way” was the Arambol beach.
It situated 60 kilometres from Dabolim airport, and the prices for living there are cheaper than in closer regions. How to reach Arambol beach from Goa airport for 1$ 🤑 read here.
If you want to chill out on the beautiful beach, this is the right place. A nice addition is a lot of unusual people playing the drums on the beach, singing and just enjoying life. There are a lot of clubs, cafes and a variety of souvenirs shops which could be additional entertainment.
You should expect typically beach 🏖️ type of rest. If you want to see some sightseeing, you would have to take an excursion or move forward to the next place.
Do you want to explore the desert and feel Rajasthan spirit? Camel desert safari is the right choice for you! We took the bike in Jaisalmer city and set off on an unforgettable journey 😎.
There are a lot of options for tourists in the market, so everybody could find something special for yourself. We took the package for 2 days which included living in the luxury tent in the middle of the desert, camel safari, Rajasthan folk performance and serving local food. Needless to say that you can explore the desert on foot in whichever directions.
Personally, the most impressive thing for me was Rajasthan folk performance 💃. Musicians played Rajasthan folk songs and a woman was dancing during this. How to get camel and desert safari experience in India read here.
It is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World 🤩. All the greatest things in human history are about love 💕. This place wasn’t an exception. Taj Mahal was built by the prince as a memorial for a lovely wife who died during delivery 14th child.
We have decided to make our acquaintance with the city more adventure. So, how to see Taj Mahal for 3$, find a big laundry on the riverside, meet the monkey’s gang and face real slums you can read here.
Despite Varanasi is a sacred place for Hinduism where people come to die, it has some interesting places of modern art. Everybody will find an activity for his own pleasures.
I would recommend visiting the Ganga Aarti ritual 🔥. Worth fire performance to see. The second one was really unusual for me – burning dead people on the riverside. Of course, Varanasi has plenty of temples, impressive riverside and thin streets. So you just can get lost and enjoy an exotic experience.
Lastly, for me was a discovery place with gorgeous street art which I expected to run into least. If you want to know more about Varanasi, read here.
