9 Remote Travel Destinations In India That Are Perfect For An Offbeat Vacation

India is a traveller’s paradise. Whether you seek the thrill of scaling a mountain or sunbathing on the shore, there’s something here for everyone. For those seeking solitude and serenity though, things can get a little difficult, seeing as popular vacation spots are often bustling with tourists.
So here’s a list of offbeat destinations that are reasonably remote, giving you the downtime you need.

1. Indira Point, Nicobar Islands

Indira Point is the southernmost tip of India. Rich in flora and fauna, the island offers the most pristine beaches and breathtaking sights.


2. Thar Desert, Rajasthan

This subtropical land boasts a colourful culture that can be seen in the folk music and dance of the local tribes along with the traditional dresses and jewellery. Take in the stories of the golden desert as you witness the sun rise and set on the sand dunes riding on the back of a camel.


3. Rann of Kutch, Gujarat

The largest salt desert in the world is a spectacular sight when bathed in moonlight. The distinctive folk dances, music, intricate arts and crafts altogether reflect the magnificence of the kaleidoscopic Kutch.
Try making it to Kalo Dungar (Black Hill) to experience a panoramic view from 458 meters above sea level.


4. Mawsynram, Meghalaya

As the wettest place on Earth, Mawsynram is a place where you can touch, smell and taste the clouds. Scenic hills, rain-soaked valleys, numerous caves and the fascinating “living bridges” built by the locals make it one exhilarating destination for an adventure.


5. Valley of Flowers, Uttarakhand

Nestled up north, this valley boasts of endless enchanting meadows of alpine flowers and is also home to some of our endangered furry friends. In springtime, this scenery, complete with mountains and little streams and colourful blossoms all around, is straight out of a postcard.


6. Araku Valley, Andhra Pradesh

The mists hanging over the coffee plantations and the sheer serenity of the valley make it one destination you simply can’t afford to miss!


7. Majuli, Assam

Majuli is located on the Brahmaputra in Assam and is the biggest river island in India. Majuli has been the cultural capital of the Assamese civilization since the 16th century and hosts important events, festivals and prayers.


8. Ladakh,  Jammu and Kashmir

With its jagged peaks and stark landscape, the land of wilderness with its overwhelming natural beauty is alluring to only the most adventurous of travellers. The Zanskar and Nubra Valleys are simply exquisite in the short summers.


9. Bhedaghat, Madhya Pradesh

The graceful Narmada river that dances through the Marble Rocks of Bhedaghat offers visitors a sweet surprise when she descends a massive 98 feet creating the stunning Dhuandhar falls. For a truly magical experience, indulge yourself with a boat ride on a moonlit night.


With views like these and the promise of peace, we hope you’re packing your bags already!
