5 Offbeat Destinations for Your Next Vacation

Khajjiar (Uttarakhand)

Planning to go on a vacation? Why not visit places that no one you know has probably visited? That would make for a truly unique experience, won’t it? Indeed, India has many gorgeous destinations that are yet to become popular tourist spots. Let’s take a look at the 5 we love the most:

Maravanthe (Karnataka)

The road to Maravanthe is as breathtaking as is the location itself, simply because quite a long stretch of it runs parallel to the sea! Go for a drive along the beach, or for a ride on a bicycle – your choice. And of course, the virgin beach town with its pristine white beach provides an excellent location to just kick back with a good book and feel the stress drain out of you.

Patan (Gujarat)

Presently a World Heritage Site recognised by UNESCO, Patan has wowed travellers who visited it with its magnificent Rani ka Vav. The place feels like it belongs to another timeline altogether thanks to the high walls surrounding it and the old style of architecture prevalent in the region. This former capital of Gujarat in the medieval age is a great destination for a short vacation.

Often referred to as the Mini Switzerland of India, Khajjiar is a marvelous location for a rejuvenating vacation, thanks to its idyllic ambiance and facilities for adventure sports like horse-riding, paragliding, and of course, trekking.
