One of the top-most travel packages that tourists opt for in southern India is starting from the Capital city of Karnataka, along with the two equally popular and visit-worthy destinations of Mysore and Ooty, the Heart of Tamil Nadu. The chilly and relaxing hill stations of Ooty combined with the luxurious palace visits in Mysore, and the exploration of one of the greatest metropolitan cities in India is truly a great experience to have.
Ladakh’s capital city of Leh is located near the eastern parts of Jammu and Kashmir, at the junction of the historically famous “Silk Route” that goes from Sinkiang to West Asia and through the plains of India.

Though the disastrous calamities recently ruined most of Kerala’s tourist attractions, it still stands as one of the greatest places people have ever been to when it comes to tourism in India because of the beautiful backwaters.
