GORGEOUS PLACES IN INDIA THAT ARE A PERFECT REPLACEMENT TO FOREIGN DESTINATIONS
Perfect Indian alternatives to your foreign trips
If you are feeling the need of a change in scenery after a long time spent at home, but still can’t take a foreign trip, here are a few domestic destinations in India you can open yourself to.
They are a perfect remedy to beat those life-in-lockdown blues. And the best part is that they look like a few international destinations that tourists generally have on their bucket-list.
Chopta is said to be India’s Mini Switzerland for being a haven of natural beauty. It is an ideal destination to go for the Tungnath-Chandrashila Trek and the temple located at Panch Kedar peak. Chopta offers generous views of anm number of peaks and ranges including Trishul, Chaukhamba and Nanda Devi mountain ranges. It is home to pine, deodar and rhododendron forests and a host of birds and animal species.
Patnitop is situated close to the Pir Panjal range in Kashmir. Patnitop was originally named Patan Da Talab meaning Pond of the Princess, but the name got distorted over a period of time. It is believed that a pond once existed in the meadows and local princesses took bath there. Patnitop looks quite like Colorado’s Idaho Springs. It was formerly a miner town, established during the mid-19th century, but later turned into a tourist destination.
