India is one of the largest countries in Asia, and with an area of over 3.3 million km there's a lot to explore! Before you travel through some of the usual tourist-filled cities across India, try some of these cities which will give not only an authentic Indian experience but will keep tourist activity at a minimum.

 

Kausani

Blessed with 300 km-wide panoramic views of the Himalayan peaks, the village town of Kausani is nestled amongst pine forests and endless valleys in the Bageshwar district of India. Mahatma Ghandi even called Kausani the Swizterland of India due to its similarly of landscapes and picturesque views.

Velas


If you're after a beach destination for your trip in India, Velas ticks all the right boxes. This seaside village lies within the Ratnagiri District of Maharashtra and is home to a plethora of turtles! Many citizens of Velas often grant themselves the task of protecting the native turtles and even host an annual event which is known as the turtle festival.

Devikulam


According to legend, a goddess by the name of Sita Devi is believed to have bathed in the pristine waters of Lake Devikulam. Although the lake, now known as Sita Devi Lake draws a considerable amount of travellers each year, it's definitely one destination which is worth the crowds.

Magnetic Hill

Located near Leh in Ladakh, Magnetic Hill is comprised of winding hills and structures to give the illusion that uphill roads are actually downhill. As a result, objects and cars often look as if they're rolling 'uphill' due to the position of the mountains.

Ponmudi

If you're a lover of chai, then Ponmudi (also known as the Golden Peak) is a must-see if you're travelling through the Western Ghats of Kerala. Home to rolling tea plantations and various hiking tracks, Ponmudi serves the modern traveller the best location to relax and recharge.
