The Qutub Minar is an unmissable, soaring Afghan-style tower and minaret. Ringed by intricately carved sandstone bands bearing verses from the Quran, the tower stands nearly 73m high and tapers from a 15m-diameter base to a mere 2.5m at the top.

Combine heritage with this short hike up the Sahyadris to the Torna Fort. Starting at Velhe village near Pune, this trek takes you across a stream to lush green plateaus, dotted by gushing cascades. Don’t miss the abandoned temples and desolate buildings that take you back in time. Get ready for a treat as you spot two valleys separated by a ridge on which you will be walking. A cloud covered hike along this green trail definitely gives you a wet yet magical flavor of monsoon.

Long immortalised by Bollywood, pine-fringed Gulmarg (‘Meadow of Flowers’), located in the Kashmir Valley, is the nearest India gets to a ski resort. The town is encircled by snow-capped peaks, the most impressive of which is Mt Affarwat, accessible via the precipitous Gulmarg Gondola – the second highest cable car ride in the world.

An intriguing, picturesque ecosystem, Loktak Lake is one of the few places in Manipur that a foreigner is allowed to visit apart from Imphal. Its shimmering blue waters are broken into small lakelets by clumps of matted weeds called phumdis, and the lake is inhabited by villagers who build thatched huts on the floating ‘islands’ and make their way about in dugout canoes. Large, perfectly circular fishing ponds are created out of floating rings of weeds. The best view is atop Sendra Island.
