I am surprised at the listings. How is the food in the top ten. Can a gourmet meal be found.
Congrats to the top 10's ! Other countries should view the interesting criteria and try to be at the top of the ladder - or rather the top of the mountain.
We are thrilled to be in the top 10 - what is great about this country is that you can combine adventure with accommodations & F&B from 5* super deluxe, spas to camping and outdoor facilities throughout the country - For the adventurous there are also motorbike tours, bicycle tours, scuba diving, camel riding - the whole gamut of adventure. We'd be happy to assist anyone interested in any adventure or otherwise. Thanks for the objective review!
Surprisingly country like India which has rich environmental herigate including almighty Himalayas, fast flowing rivers, Thar deserts, Coastal line and number of national parks and sancturies offering vide range of fauna and flora.
