    2. Kulu/Manali
    3. Ooty
    4. Kodaikanal
    5. Goa
    6. Ranthambore/Kanha/Bandhavgadh (pick one)
    7. Matheran
    8. Dharmasala
    9. Jaisalmer and the dunes
    10. Andaman & Nicobar

    But there are many to which I cannot do justice because I am pegged at 10.

    I like lonely place when i visit goa i never want to stay in north goa specially in session (i avoid calangute,Candolim or Mapusa) i always stay in south goa(colva-majorda or vasco) but in mumbai i just like marine drive or sometimes i just went to Hanging garden(malavar hills) so much crowds just like kolkata really this is not for holiday destination for me.

    I would recommend Jammu and Kashmir to everyone.kashmir valley is pristine beauty,the pine trees,long unending roads,Dal lake,Kawa,snow capped mountains,walnut and pear trees dotting every roadside,long nights,rickety taxis and above all very friendly people.I have been to Kargil,Patnitop,Pahalgam,Srinagar and various place that don't find any mention in Tour guides.There's everything in Kashmir but it seems people can't enjoy under the shadow of huge Indian forces that are omnipotent there and did I mention Kashmiri women are epitome of beauty.Not to mention this place is perfect gateway for those who are looking for solitude.

    1. Ranthambore and Bandhavgadh
    2. Kulu/Manali
    3. Ooty
    4. Kodaikanal
    5. Goa
    6. shimla
    7. Leh/ Ladkah
    8. Dharmasala
    9. Jaisalmer and the dunes
    10. Andaman & Nicobar

    Only two people from this thread have mentioned Kashmir. Apart from its troubles you got to admit its a beautiful place to visit, especially the Valley of Flowers thats something I would love to go and see.

    Srinagar is another place on the list I think, its a beautiful place to visit, especially in the summers when its nice and cool there. And the main reason for people to go there is Dal Lake! I did hear that they stopped the house boats, was this true or are the house boats still avaliable there?

    Thats good, because I want to go and stay in the house boats. I had heard about a year and half ago that they wont be there anymore, was quite dissapointed, as I think staying in a house boat is quite a different experience.

    What month did you go in and what are costs like staying in a houseboat?
