With summer holidays on the groove, it is the best time of the year to post about the top 10 tourists spots in India.
India is a land of diversity and a country of contrast. Indians advocate both extremes across the country. We have the coldest places in Kashmir, place of highest rainfall in Cherrapunji, the driest place on Earth i.e. the Thar Desert and the list goes on. Again, more than half of the Indian boundary is clad with beautiful beaches. And how can one forget about the mighty Himalayan ranges with snow capped mountains protecting Northern India.
And this is not just it! We are also rich in cultures, languages and dialects. We have a mixture of diversity. Well, with such diversity in very field, it is really amazing to see how we operate as one single democratic country.
