India, truly a wonderful land, has myriads of tourist spots in all its corners. From scintillating mountains to coral beaches and historical destinations to pilgrimage centers, options are enormous as well as quite complex to choose from. It’s therefore I come up with my recommendation for travel destinations in India you must visit in 2012.

Gulmarg

A vast cup-shaped hayfield surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Gulmarg looks like a fantasy set in everyone’s mind. With lush green slopes, deep colorful valleys and high-scaling mountains covered with white layers of snow, this rolling meadow casts a wizardly trance to lure tourists from far and wide. However, travel to Gulmarg is an ideal escape for adventure lovers and sports enthusiasts.

Gulmarg is one of most sought after tourist spots in Jammu & Kashmir located approximately 2 hours drive from Srinagar – the summer capital of the state. This mountainous city is a premium skiing resort in India and is thronged by millions of travelers annually. The best time to plan a Gulmarg tour is always ‘November-February’, when Gulmarg offers magical beauty and awesome recreations.

Gangtok

Lying strategically in the foothills of Himalaya, Gangtok is a land of lovely mountainous views, exotic orchids and mystery-laden pagodas. The capital city of Sikkim, Gangtok is alluring equally to sightseers, nature-lovers, adventure enthusiasts and those interested in Buddha religion. Visit to its old monasteries and you get to explore wonderful murals, religious paintings and Buddha statues along with soothing spirituality and peace. Also, there are many trekking routes which lead the trekkers through picturesque valleys, monasteries, forests and mountain lakes. The best time to visit Gangtok is ‘November to January’ and ‘March to late May’.

Ooty

People come here to soak up a unique tranquility amidst heavenly natural beauty. Endless rows of tea plantations, majestic blue hills, cascading waterfalls and evergreen forests; Ooty has a timeless beauty matchless to other parts of country. Deep within Nilgiri Hills, this scenic hill resort is located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu and is the perfect retreat to nature lovers and honeymooners. The Ooty Lake, Botanic Garden, Stone House, Toda huts and Ooty toy Train are some attractions an Ooty package offers to the visitors.

Jaipur

‘Medieval grand palaces, mighty forts, lively markets, delicious foods and warm hospitality’, these are some of the components Jaipur travel has in its profile. Fondly called the ‘Pink City’, the picturesque heritage city of Jaipur has long been an alluring destination for history admirers and culture enthusiasts. Historical essence of Jaipur is unavoidable, and its food and shopping is internationally famous. One of the India’s Golden Triangle, Delhi and Agra being other two, Jaipur is truly a city to visit in 2010.

Tirupati

This divine city is recognized for the grand ‘Venkateswara Temple’ and the holiest ‘Tirupati darshan’. Thousands of pilgrims visit this temple annually to pay homage to the Lord Venkateswara, though its architectural excellence and spirituality also remain long in the heart and soul of visitors. Demand for Tirupati package has always been on top among pilgrimage packages in India.
