Thanks to the string of public holidays in March, taking some time off of our routine to enjoy the spirit of spring seems doable task. Read on as we provide you details of some of the fascinating destinations which could be the good getaway this spring.
Ooty is the South India’s one of the favorite hill station and rightly so, thanks to the beautiful flower gardens and tea states. In spring these gardens and the hills covered with tea plants come alive to provide you some of the brightest greenery on hills.
You could visit Botanical gardens and Government rose garden (the largest rose garden in India) to see the variety of flowers and nature’s spectacular beauty. One must also take a trek in some of the private held tea estates. Owners of tea estates are more than eager to show you their estate and to demonstrate the tea making process. It’s an altogether different experience.
2.Uttarakhand Spring Bird Festival
Uttarakhand is covered with Himalayan mountain ranges and some of the densest forests in India and that’s the reason that Uttarakhand is home to many bird species. Uttarakhand spring bird festival is organized every year and this year the festival is from 9-11th March 2018.
