It is not a crime to be gay in India anymore. So where to go there?

As many of you may have known, India has made a historic step this year – the Colonial-era Section 377 has finally been repealed, so homosexuality is not a crime in the country anymore. And this is a big win not only for queer locals, but also for queer tourists, because they have one more safe travel destination to explore. So what are the must-sees of India? Yumthang Valley, Sikkim (pictured), also known as the Valley of Flowers, this beautiful spot for the fans of countryside rest with green grass, colorful meadows, fresh air and yaks. It is quite unexpected for India, but that is why it is definitely worth seeing.

Tea Gardens, Munnar, are for those who cannot imagine a perfect morning without a cup of good tea. It is very interesting to explore what a long way the tea leaves have to go from the plantation to your cup. The Palace of Winds in Jaipur, the Lotus Temple in New Delhi and, of course, the one and only Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh are for those who like to explore the exotic culture, especially architecture. For those who prefer the beauty of the nature India also has a lot of interesting things to offer. For example, beautiful waterfalls (let us mark Hogenakkal Falls, Tamil Nadu, and Nohkalikai Falls, Cherrapunji), lakes (in part Dal Lake) and islands (Agatti Island is great for the experienced tourists who are already tired of the mainland India, which is really fascinating, but very crowded and noisy). If you like animals, then Bandhavgarh National Park in Pradesh would be a perfect place for you to spend a day.
