    "I cannot have been more at peace here. If you guys watched the Avengers: Endgame, this is my version of Thanos' garden. Went here by myself and the scenery was just majestic. I'd definitely recommend going boating. Munnar in August is a haven for solitude and meditation."

    "I'm an adrenaline junkie so I'm all for extreme sports but the yak safari was definitely a new and exciting experience. The trails don't disappoint-definitely worth the12 hour-long drive from Delhi. Won't advise this place if you're an amateur trekker since you might have trouble breathing through such a high altitude of 12,000ft. Had the most awesome trek with my buddies. "

    "As soon as I got off the port I just knew that these islands had the clearest blue waters I've seen all my life. I almost cried just seeing it from above - a 2 hour flight from Chennai. Been here twice, once in the summer which was way too hot for me so I came back the August next year. "

    "The perfect 5-day trip in August must be spent along the coast of Goa. A hip and chill beach where I found meaning to the phrase "feel infinite" (-Perks of being a Wallflower). Such a profound experience meeting open-minded people from all walks of life. Plus when else can I say that I've gone through monkey valley hahaha"

    "Went here in August since this was the place to visit in India then and to go river rafting. I also got to see those waterfalls! Coorg's weather is just great. A group of friends and I planned a trip just for the sake of having a weekend getaway. I'd say leave early in the morning so that you can get there by noon if you're coming from Bangalore. The big bonus is that this was an affordable vacation near the city."

    "Udaipur is famous for its lakes and it deserves its title as the Venice of the East in every way. I've been a fan of Bollywood all my life so when I hear that a lot of scenes were shot here... I just had to see it in real life. This place has everything from food to attractions. Won't be a complete tour of India without stopping over here."

    "I'm an architect and I just had to see the Khajuraho temples of love. It was indeed breathtaking especially when you stay for the light and sound show at night. During the day, there were times I felt like I had too much time to spare. It was good nonetheless, I admired the intricately detailed carvings on the walls then proceeded to other attractions in the area. "
