India breathes free for the 70th year this 15th August, 2016. With a melange of different cultures, our country stands true to the concept of ‘ unity in diversity’.

But it’s not only the vibrant people of India that make it a much-loved destination, the country’s intriguing landscapes also promise a worthwhile journey. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, India’s terrains have captured hearts all across the globe.

On the occasion of Independence Day, we pay a tribute to the colours of the Indian national flag with these 4 beautiful destinations.

Here are 4 of the many destinations that are a true representation of India's colours

#1 Jaisalmer: The City That Exhibits Saffron-Tinted Sunset

Jaisalmer, nestled in the heart of the Thar desert, is perfect for anyone who wants to indulge in a royal experience. Stay in a luxury tent amidst the golden dunes and experience its vivid culture. The glorious heritage of the city can also be witnessed in traditional dance performances by the locals. But a truly awe inspiring moment would be to hop on a camel ride in the evening when the sun sets, and watch the sky turn a mesmerising hue of saffron.

#2 Auli: Home To Breathtaking Snow-Clad Mountains

Auli, often called as Switzerland of India is a popular hill station situated in the state of Uttarakhand. The splendid mountain range of the mighty Himalayas is home to exhilarating experiences. It is especially a must-visit for ski-lovers and adventure junkies. Swing through the snowy landscape in Auli ropeway, which happens to be one of the highest cable car rides in the world.

#4 Lakshadweep: The Coral Island With Crystal-Clear Blue Water 

The intoxicating islands of Lakshadweep need no introduction, neither do its beautiful coral reefs and lagoons. If you’re someone who’s not too fascinated with snorkeling, scuba diving or kayaking, then keep it simple and immerse yourself in the breathtaking views of the beaches.
