  1. Nice article i liked it very much and you mentioned great places. But you only shown places in north side, i think you should also add other places to. Like goa beaches, kerla, and other places.

    1. I somewhat agree, although Munnar and Darjeeling are enlisted as suggested destinations. Given that we live in a country where you come across a beautiful destination every 50 kilometers, it becomes somewhat improbable to mention all vaunted places. I suggest you browse through other posts on this blog where adequate information about Goa and South India has been given.
