HolidayIQ reviewer R.K. Saxena says, "Amritsar has many historical sightseeing places. One needs at least five days to a week to actually visit everything. Wagah Border and Golden Temple need to be visited with a lot of time in hand. The traditional 'Phulkari' work on textiles, 'dupatta' and ladies suits and visit various shops, it is a nice experience."

HolidayIQ reviewer Millo says, "Gokarna has been my go-to paradise for 5-6 times so far. Beach sports kept us busy, playing frisbee, running in the sea, playing in the water, boating, eating was exactly how one spends their time in Gokarna. Best time to travel is the onset of monsoons and winters. Board a train, bus, or reach by car. The drive is equally fascinating. Bring your shorts, sun block, torch and wallet. That should do."

HolidayIQ reviewer Digvijay says, "Rishikesh is one of the unique destination in India, which has to offer you adventure trips like river rafting, kayaking, trekking, along with natural beauty and globally renowned ashrams. The famous Geeta ashram near the banks of Ganga, the city icon Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula fills the thrill in the heart of every individual."

HolidayIQ reviewer Sunil says, "The experience was awesome, a temple among the mountains, with chanting and prayers all around. It gave a mesmerising effect, truly the experience was as if we were in the abode of Gods. In Badrinath temple, we feel spiritual environment as well as on the way to Shree Hemkund Saheb like just the way to heaven."

HolidayIQ reviewer Shekhar says, "Kedarnath temple is so nicely placed beautifully placed between the Himalayan mountains that you would never want to leave the place. The view of the valley and the mountains and choppers landing and taking off. It's just awesome. The breakfast at the government stall, only one available, is the best when taken piping hot."

HolidayIQ reviewer Mahesh Suthar says, "Khajuraho may be promoted as the land of Kamasutra but there's a lot more to Khajuraho than what the internet can tell you. You have to visit the place in person to experience and know the history and significance of what the 10th-century temples have to offer. The main attractions were certainly the western group of temples which are a majestic creation of extraordinary craftsmanship. I was amazed to see such intricate carvings, stories and devotion of the Chandela Empire."

Then early morning went to Chandanwari where our journey began. Reached to Pissu Top and was proud to see that the Indian flag on top of it. Then the whole day we went through and at evening we reached the place called Sheshnag. We saw the Sheshnag Lake and the mountains, feeling the on the top of the world."

It houses the grave of the revered saint."

HolidayIQ reviewer Payel says, "Haridwar situated on the banks of river Ganga is visited for religious purpose but I went with my family to see the scenic beauty of the place where the river first enters the plains!!! Rishikesh, Laxman Jhula, Ram Jhula, Mansa Devi Temple are other attractions of the place along with the short ride of the cable car to Chandi Devi Temple."
