Time and again, we have told you guys how much we love North East and how underrated it is in terms of beauty and travelling. But, a good thing of it being underrated is that the beauty of the place is untouched and unfiltered from the human hindrance. It is totally raw and Sikkim is one of the best places in the North East without a doubt. If you are someone who loves staying close to the nature then Sikkim is the best place to be in.
A week or atleast 4 to 5 days in Sikkim would be an amazing time to spend in the place. The vibe of the hill stations of the North East is something different and the experience is quite unique to be honest.
Coorg, the Scotland of India, is a place that we would recommend you to visit quite often. This is the place that you can visit for a leisure trip as well as for the adventure trip. It is super soothing to trek along the waterfalls that make for a gorgeous sight. The best sight is of the sights of the tea and the coffee plantations.
