WHERE TO GO…
Dhanushkodi, the southern tip of the Rameshwaram: This “ghost town” was destroyed in a cyclone in the 1960s. All you see are skeletal ruins, Sri Lanka in the distance and you can see what is considered to be the remains of the Ram Setu. Recommended by: Lakshmi Sharath (lakshmisharath.com)
Almora: It’s a very touristy place but go for local treks in Almora district instead. It has got the best view of the Himalayas. Recommended by: Neelima Vallangi (travelwithneelima.com)
Anywhere in Arunachal Pradesh. It is still unspoiled, and has the thickest forests I have ever seen. You can drink water straight from the rivers. And it has thousands of varieties of orchids.
