Gangtok

October is one of the best times to visit this mountain retreat. Spectacular views of the Kanchenjunga which is only the third highest peak in the world. Yes, thats right! The whole entire world. If that’s not enough, snow-capped mountains as your backdrop and glacial lakes make this place seem straight out a disney fairytale. Another cool activity that you cannot miss out are the yak safaris. You read that right! There’s a story you can show off to your friends and family. Schedule a visit to the Buddhist monasteries to enjoy some peace and quiet whilst listening to the coordinated prayer chants.

Pondicherry

If you know what “J’aime le français” means, Pondicherry should be a must visit for you. This small coastal town is soaked up in all things French. Take a walk through the french quarter or visit the auroville ashram to indulge in some meditation. Not to miss out on the delectable french cuisines. We’re serious. Their croissants seem like they were flown straight out of a cafe in Paris. Cheap booze, yummy food and a laid back attitude is what this mini france is all about.

Udaipur

If you love James Bond, you know that scenes from the famous Octopussy were shot at the Lake Palace. India’s most romantic city is also known as the venice of the east. Boat rides similar to the gondola rides, narrow streets full of mystery and lake palaces that transport you to an unkonwn time, this historical and cultural capital of Rajasthan should not be missed. A shopper’s paradise, you can find a number of beautiful and intricately designed items for sale.
