With mountains, plains, and flowing rivers, North India is a diverse and tourism-rich landscape. The ideal spring weather makes it the best time to travel by road in northern India, before the oppressive summer heat kicks in. Here are some of our favorite travel destinations to visit in 2021:
1.Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh
Dharamshala, surrounded by Deodar forests, offers captivating views of the Dhauladhar Ranges and the pristine Dal Lake. March is the best weather to trek, hike, paraglide or camp here.
March is the ideal time to visit the Golden Temple and take a dip in the holy Amrit Sarovar Lake. One must also visit Jallianwala Bagh and the nearby Wagah Border.
3.Agra, Uttar Pradesh
Mere hours from Delhi, a trip to Agra encompasses visits to the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort, the tomb of Itimad-ud-Daula and Fatehpur Sikri, each stunning in its own right.

Ranthambore is home to the Ranthambore National Park, the largest tiger reserve in India.

The Ranthambore Fort, a World Heritage site, is also frequented by leopards and the fishing cat.
