Valley of Flowers National Park
Vibrant and attractive colours are always a great addition to an Instagram feed, and you don’t get more vibrant than the gorgeous carpet of flowers in bloom at the Valley of Flowers in Uttarakhand. The trek from Govind Ghat throws up plenty of opportunities for great photos in itself, though few things can top the valley when its in peak bloom. The best time to visit this place is between June and September. Don’t forget to zoom into the flora and fauna to highlight their eye-catching colours!

Jal Mahal in Jaipur
As its moniker of the Pink City suggests, you will find the city of Jaipur dressed in hues of pink. This colourful place is home to many forts and palaces, and indeed, is one of the most royal cities in India, full of culture and fascinating history. As arguably one of the most picturesque places in India, it definitely deserves a feature or two on your Instagram feed, whether it’s the gorgeous, brightly coloured handicrafts, the elephants lumbering up to Amer Fort, or even a hot-air balloon ride over the city as dawn breaks!

India’s north-eastern states aren’t visited as often as other parts of the country, and it’s something we’ve never been able to understand! These are some of the most picturesque places in India – think rolling green hills, untouched landscapes, fascinating culture and history and so much more. Meghalaya’s living root bridges, in particular, are a sight to behold – not only are they incredibly gram-worthy, but a trek through the countryside, crossing these bridges and the waterfalls and streams they span, is a special experience.

Darjeeling. roman korzh
Darjeeling is a sweet town, a colonial throwback, nestled amid the foothills of the Himalayas. This one has long been a favourite with travellers and might feel a bit overrun, but it’s a gateway to some of the most spectacular landscapes around! Miles of tea estates, amazing views of Himalayan peaks and heaped platefuls of steaming momos are just some of the experiences to look forward to here. You can even revisit your childhood with a ride in the toy train against a backdrop of magnificent mountains – great for those stories!
