Where to visit for a Relaxing yet Happening Trip to India

Are you travelling to India for the first time and want to experience the country? What exactly do you look forward to from your India tour? Sipping tea from a clay pot and looking at the mountains is what you’re expecting or you wish to gel with the youth of the nation, experience the real culture, and party with them?

What is India all about?

India has a reputation of being a culturally rich country and with unity in diversity. However, not many people know is that India has transformed into a party destination for many and with places offering the best possible nightlife. This article will tell you about different places in India where you’ll witness breathtaking landscapes and enjoy a happening stay.

Here’s a list of places to visit in India where you can unleash your party animal:

1. Goa, The PARTY Capital of India- As clichéd as it may sound, but there’s no better party destination in India than Goa. Sexy beaches, cheap beer, casinos, exotic nightclubs, beach parties, delicious seafood, music festivals, scenic beauty – Goa has it all. Leave all your worries aside and get ready for a ‘what happens in Goa stays in Goa’ party trip.


You can stay at an apartment, a villa by the beach, or a luxurious beach resort. Goa has something for every budget.

What to do

You can rent a scooter easily in Goa, explore the city, go to Dudhsagar Waterfalls, visit beautiful churches, soak up the sun during the day, party wild at night at various nightclubs. You can also attend beach parties at places like Arambol.

When to Visit

The summers in Goa can be very hot and it receives heavy rainfall during the monsoon. The best time to visit is from October to March.

2. Kasol – If you wish to get high on mountains just by seeing the scenic beauty (you know what I mean), Kasol is the place for you. Kasol is a small town in Himachal Pradesh which is usually not very crowded. You can experience a peaceful trek to places like Chalal and Malana from Kasol or stay in Kasol and enjoy your time by the Parvati river.


You can camp at Kasol or rent a comfortable room easily. However, if you really wish to experience the real thrill of the town, camping is the best way to do it. And these are not regular tents, they are very comfortable and have their own toilets.

Please Note: Nights in Kasol can be very dark, carry a bright torch like the Streamlight Stinger to navigate your way through the valley.

What to do

Get friendly with the locals and explore the mountains of the Parvati Valley during the day and get cozy by a bonfire during the night.

When to Visit

Winters in Kasol can be very chilly with lots of snowfall. However, Kasol hosts parties during Christmas week. If you can  resist the cold, visiting Kasol in December end can be great fun. Although, most of the tourists visit Kasol during the months of May-July when the weather is pleasant with lots of parties.

3. Rishikesh – Rishikesh is another hippie destination in India with lots of foreign tourists. Rishikesh is a small town in Uttarakhand and a gem for peace-lovers. Rishikesh is still unexplored and not very commercial, where you can go river rafting during the day and chill by the riverside during the night.


Rishikesh has many river-facing pocket-friendly hotels.

What to do

You can go for adventure sports like bungee jumping, river rafting, etc. in Rishikesh and soak up the clean mountain air under a clear night sky.

When to Visit

Rishikesh receives heavy rainfall during the monsoon, which makes it impossible to go for water sports. Best Time to visit is in months like March and April. Otherwise, you can visit in the cold months of October-December.


These are some of the destinations in India where you can relax as well as party hard. I hope this has given you information about different happening places in India. If you know a better place, please mention in the comments below.
