    • Gaurav Kumar Srivastava

      Disha, thanks for valid suggestion. I accept Maharashtra has some very good tourist places like Khandala, Mahabaleshwar etc.., but it isn’t possible to add every destinations in top 10 list. Hope, you got my point.

  14. its amazing
    you can give all types of tourist attractions information
    My advice is that – you should be a travel agent or open a website like GOIBIBO.com

    • Gaurav Kumar Srivastava

      Hi Khyati, thanks for your advice. But, neither I am any travel agent nor going to start any huge website like goibibo and some others. I am single owner/author/admin on this small travel blog who just love to write about travel and other related information.


  15. It is really very informative and helpful post. can you please suggest some good places to visit in first week of October for family with small kids. we want to have a 4 night trip from Delhi. don;t want to go to Shimla/Mansoori/Nainital/haridwar/Jaipur/Agra/Udaipur (already visited). can go by Air. Goa also visited.

    Is Darjelling or Kerala is good option for us or some other place. please advice.

    • Gaurav Kumar Srivastava

      It’s good to know you already visited some of the most beautiful destinations of India. That’s great. I believe you still have some good options for your next family trip. You may plan for Mount Abu, Rishikesh, Coorg or Wayanad(in Kerala). These all destinations are best to visit in October month. Darjeeling is also a good option after monsoon, and if you visit Darjeeling after mid of oct it will great.

  16. No Doubt, India is the most beautiful travel destination. Many many thanks to Gaurav Kumar Srivastava for listed most polular tourist destination in India.

    Thanks for sharing this list.
