Are you bored of holidaying in the common done-to-death cities? Are you tired of visiting cities that are so overcrowded that there’s no place for tourists?

The whole idea of vacation has drifted to spending a handsome amount of money and living lavishly in an isolated location in a metropolitan city. If you’re seeking peace, then what’s the point in going from one polluted city to another?

Villages are often stereotyped to be poverty stricken, lacking basic facilities and not worthy enough to be lived in. However, there is a whole other aspect of villages that still needs to be appreciated. Sarson ke khet, haryali, sukoon, charpaai, makke di roti-sarson da saag and ganne are only some of the ‘desi’ attributes that would make you want to leave the whole hustle bustle of cities and plan a vacation in the lap of nature.

Not only will a village vacation give you a peaceful time for yourself but will make you learn some of the most important lessons of life. You might start loving the indigenous surrounding and the rustic feel of these mesmerizing locations.

To give you a truly enriching and a memorable experience this time, we bring you a list of villages that are oh-so-pretty that you would not consider missing them!
