From waterfalls to mountain ranges, the vast and diverse landscapes lend themselves to adventure and excitement, which is why so many travellers choose to make India their destination each year.

There are few countries that can boast such astounding opportunities for hiking of all intensity levels as India.

In India, the Kass plateau is a popular hiking destination known for its gorgeous flowers and plant life. The Kandilpushpa plant is a bizarre pod plant which looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Travellers cannot wait to experience the unique plant life of this area.

You can feel the spray of the water as you stand below, and take pictures against the gorgeous natural backdrop of waterfalls and forest that surround the plateau.
The stately mountain range located partially in India is not just a pretty sight from a distance. Visitors can truly experience the magic of these massive rocks by trying out mountain biking.
