Just like its diverse cultures, food habits and traditions, every corner of India has something unique to offer tourists. No matter if you are an adrenaline junkie or an explorer, you must have some unique travel experiences in India on your bucket list!
So, what are you waiting for? Pack your stuff and head to these places across the country!
1. Staying in an igloo
Igloo in India? Yes! You heard it right! No need to spend lakhs to visit Norway to stay in an igloo! The Sethan village in Himachal Pradesh gets all covered in more than 7 feet of snow during winter.
Heavily dependent on tourism, Himachal Pradesh got the first site in the country to have igloos where you can spend a night or two and have a chilling experience! Literally!
Near Manali, the igloo site is in the lap of the Himalayas in Hampta Valley. Besides staying inside a real igloo, you can also enjoy several activities with an inclusive package with all meals, bonfires and many more!
Imagine having an Eskimo experience in India with all the modern utilities and facilities!
2. Meeting the head-hunter tribe
This unique travel experience in India is only for bravehearts! Have you heard of the Konyak tribe of Nagaland? They are infamous for their old tradition of beheading their enemies and keeping their heads as trophies!
No, you do not have to worry as this practise has stopped long back! But, you can visit their village and meet them while travelling near the Mon district of Nagaland! Although they are ashamed of their gruesome past, they are truly great warriors.
Besides, their face and body tattoos, ear piercings and heavy jewellery are fascinating to watch!
3. Spotting snow leopards
The beauty of Spiti valley is known to the world! But, not everyone knows that during winter, you can go for a snow leopard spotting expedition! It usually begins from Kibber, and you need to be really patient to get a glimpse of a mighty snow leopard in its natural habitat in the middle of the snow-clad mountains of the Himalayas!
Spotting a snow leopard in Spiti valley is a matter of luck and going on this expedition overcoming all the climatic and other adversities is something only a true animal lover should sign up for!
However, even as an avid traveller, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
4. Doing a freediving course
Travelling to Andamans? You can become a professional freediver while on vacation! Several institutions in Neil and Havelock islands offer freediving courses! The course duration is for 2 days only!
If you are a water baby and want to explore the beauty of underwater from close, you cannot miss this opportunity! Besides the beginner’s course, you can also go for an advanced course if you are eligible for the same.
The first-time jitter is normal, but you do not have to worry as the instructors are highly professional and follow all necessary safety measures while diving deep into the sea!
