Not all those who wander are lost.\r\n- J.R.R. Tolkien\r\n\r\nVery well and rightly said.\r\n\r\nSome are those lone travelers who carve their way out through every place and broaden their vision.\r\n\r\nOne of the most varied and diversified places in the world is India, the South Asian country and the most populous democracy in the world.\r\n\r\nIndia being home to numerous tourist attractions places and world heritage sites, always provide travelers a heartwarming experience. From the smallest of the villages to some of the biggest metropolitan cities, India has always remained a diversified yet a unified country.\u00a0Though there are many popular places here to visit in India but there are a lot of them which never gained popularity though being worthy of it.\r\n\r\nHere, I have mentioned some of the most underrated travel destinations in India with the hope that they will someday become well-known places and mesmerize others with their beauty. Here we go:\r\n\r\n \r\n1. Bounsi\r\n\r\n\r\nSource\r\n\r\nA town in Banka district of Bihar is one such place. The town is situated 295 km from the state capital and is home to one of the most beautiful and historical hills of the country \u201cThe Mandar Hills\u201d. The site is a terminal station of Bhagalpur- Mandar Hill railway line.\r\n\r\nThe place has many historical stories of which one is the story of how Lord Krishna became \u201cMadhusudan\u201d. The place consists of lakes and a number of religious places to visit.\r\n\r\nThe most striking feature is the simplicity and its uniqueness in itself. The best seasons to visit Bounsi are the maker Sankranti, Janmashtami and Durga Puja. One can enjoy the liveliness of the town at these festive times. Though situated at the highway connecting Bihar and Jharkhand, sadly the place is not recognized by travelers as a travel destination and remains underrated.\r\n\r\n \r\n2. The Valley of Flowers\r\n\r\n\r\nSource\r\n\r\nIt is situated in the Himalayan hills of Uttarakhand and is known for its variety of flowers. Not only flora but it is home to some endangered fauna too.\r\n\r\nNestled in the upper expanses of Bhyundar Ganga near Joshimath in the Garhwal region, it is a habitat for endemic alpine flowers. Though having found a place in the list of World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, it is one of the most underrated places.\r\n\r\nIt is believed that various \u2018yogis\u2019 meditated there to gain enlightenment. The beauty of the place lies in the fact that any color a person can think of can be seen there from the very eyes of us in the form of beautiful flowers. Just thought of treading on a carpet of flowers?\r\n\r\n \r\n3. The Varkala Beach\r\n\r\n\r\nSource\r\n\r\nAlso known as 'Papnasham Beach', it's one of the finest beaches human eyes can ever witness.\r\n\r\nSituated in South India in Kerala, it's a perfect sight for watching the soothing sunset down the shores.\r\n\r\nIt's by far the best place for adventures and sports like parasailing and boat riding. Though this beach never gained popularity and is known only to a handful of people.\r\n\r\nA nearby place to visit around 'The Varkala Beach' is the famous Janardana Swami Temple, known for the ten-day festival of Arattu held twice a year. Nearby is the Sivagiri hills, where the Sivagiri Mutt is also located.\r\n\r\n \r\n4. Mandavgarh\r\n\r\n\r\nSource\r\n\r\nMore popularly known as Mandu, is an ancient city located in the Dhar district of Madhya Pradesh. Known as the fortress town, it is a tribute to the adorable love of Baz Bahadur (a Muslim, and the last sultan of Malwa) and Roopmati (a Hindu singer, and later the Queen of Malwa).\r\n\r\nIf you want to live a life beyond time boundaries, this is the place. The boundless love and the immense architectural delight the place has to give, will surely roll back the wheels of time, and present before you a beautiful, eccentric and terrific view of the lovely surrounding.\r\n\r\nSurrounded by Baobab trees which are mostly found in Africa, this place has a fort named the Jahaz Mahal, which speaks volumes of the rich and varied history of the place.\r\n.\u00a0 \u00a0.\u00a0 \u00a0.\u00a0 \u00a0.\u00a0 \u00a0.\r\nAbove mentioned are some of the most underrated travel destinations in India, which though have a beautiful and overwhelming view in itself, but rarely got the eyes of the travelers. Traveling to these places, the visitors will not only enjoy the destinations but the journey through their rich history too.\r\n\u201c Travel is not only a word but a whole universe of itself, of emotions, of feelings, of nurturing the soul. A traveler\u2019s bag has a lot many stories to tell than a storybook.\u201d\r\nDo you know or have you been to places that are even more underrated than the ones mentioned here?
