1. The Taj Mahal of Agra

Perhaps India's most famous building, the Taj Mahal, is also the world's most renowned tribute to the power of love.  Located in the city of Agra, the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum created to house the ashes of Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. These gorgeous mausoleums began upon her death in 1631 and took 20,000 workers until 1648. Taj Mahal is obviously on any traveler's first bucket list to visit in India. It's a primary tourist location that welcomes over 800,000 tourists annually. Travelers usually arrange their tours to this mausoleum during October or November. But, there's no such time-of-visit, all year round. The vista is spectacular as it always has been.

2. Manali of Himachal Pradesh

Manali, one of Himachal's most well-known hill stations, offers spectacular views of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar mountains, covered in snow for most of the year. Old Manali is a popular neighborhood for such folks, thanks to its relaxing cafes, good wifi, little eateries, and convenient shopping. Some numerous homestays and hostels provide cheap dorm beds for extended visits. During the winter season (December to February), the city is covered in snow, creating an ideal setting for some snowboarding - most notably in Solang Valley. The city comes alive with color and warmth from June to October, enticing adventure seekers to go rafting, paragliding, trekking, and hiking. We believe it is one of the best destinations to visit in India because it provides 'diversity' for all travelers.

Manali is surrounded by numerous trekking possibilities, making it an ideal base for exploring this side of the Himalayas. In the neighboring town of Kullu, the River Beas offers excellent rafting opportunities. The Parvati Valley, which borders the Parvati River and includes Kasol, Manikaran, Tosh, and other tiny settlements, attracts visitors for more extended stays. The Atal Tunnel now allows travelers to reach Sissu in a matter of hours, making Spiti much more accessible.
