India is a country that does not leave indifferent and that can hardly be described in words. Not even in pictures. It is necessary to travel through it, live it and feel it in the first person to get an idea. It is a country that changes people. It is not a cliché, it is true. I think it affects travelers because of the poverty they can see in it, the dignified and positive way in which the Indians face it and the religiosity present in every second that is spent there.

If INDIA is in your destination, I recommend you visit the following places, they will leave you impressed with their beauty.


The southern state of Kerala is one of the most famous in India. It is on the west coast and, in addition to miles and miles of tropical beaches, it is full of forests and animals. Culturally it is also very interesting since here you will find Hindu temples, churches, mosques and even synagogues in a state that is considered communist (it is full of communist flags everywhere).

With permission from Ayurvedic medicine treatments and massages and Khatakali dances, Kerala's most famous experience is the canoe ride through the Backwaters of Alappuzha or Kottayam. The Backwaters are rivers, lakes and canals surrounded by vegetation and in which many people live.

2. Hampi

The small town of Hampi is the most popular destination in the State of Karnataka. The town was once the capital of the Vijayanagar Empire. Today many of its ruins are still preserved, which are World Heritage Sites by Unesco. The landscape around Hampi is brutal and the best way to get to know it is by renting a motorcycle and going up some of the mountains.

3. Goa

Goa is probably the most touristic and smallest state in the country. It is the ideal place if you are looking for beaches and parties. In addition to its beaches, Goa is famous for its hippie markets and trance parties. The normal thing in Goa is to sleep in a cabin on top of a palm tree in front of the beach, and to rent a motorcycle to tour the state.

4.Varansi (or Benares)

One of the oldest cities in the world, continuously inhabited for more than 3000 years. It is one of the obligatory places if you want to know the authentic India. Varansi is a sacred city for Hinduism since the Ganges River passes through it, that makes religion permeate everything. An estimated 60,000 people bathe every day in the highly polluted and sacred waters of the river. So a walk through the Ghats (the stairs that go down to the river) is essential to get to know the city.

5. Haridwar and Rishikesh

Haridwar is in the north of the country, in the state of Uttarakhand. Haridwar means the gate to God and the Ganges River also passes through it. Although here it is clean. This town is famous for the Kumbh Mela festival. A festival that is held every 12 years and in 2003 brought together 70 million people. So it is the biggest festival in the world and probably in the history of mankind.


Manali is a town in northern India at more than 2000 meters above sea level. This town is famous among travelers for being the place where those who want to smoke xaras (Indian hashish) go. And it is true that there are many people who go there (especially Israelis), but Manali is also a good place to go for excursions. The forests around the town are beautiful and are made up of giant trees with huge waterfalls.

7. Srinagar

Srinagar is the capital of the famous Cashmir. A land that has been facing India and Pakistan for decades. Srinagar is a city with a huge lake in the middle, full of houseboats that you can stay in. A highly recommended experience is to spend a day in a boat strolling around the lake observing life in it.
