Writer : Pranav Dave Published on : 02-Jun-2022

As the summer vacation nears the end, let's enthral ourselves on the last quest to explore the hidden treasure of Indian Wilderness to breath-in and gaze at its peace and tranquillity.

Nature has a unique way of vacating us out of our homes and propelling us to propagate a connection with wind, trees, animals, and limitless mountain ranges. Travel constitutes a part of our life that contents us with adventure and excitement to overcome monotony and bizarreness. Especially, when it comes to ‘summer vacation’, everybody gets exuberant to spend some quality time rejuvenating themselves. Though, this has always been a topic for debate, where exactly to spend your vacation that satisfies your hunger for the perfect vacation advocates that travelling to National Parks and Tiger Reserves is more of an elevation than simply travelling. It keeps you submerged in the raw experience of fresh leaves and the magnificent mountain of forests. Wildlife tourism encourages you to converse with nature and its components by simply accepting the role of spectator. 

This blog is the exact answer to this question, as it covers the 5 most influential wildlife destinations in India, to consider while backpacking on summer vacation.
