India has amazing things to offer to those who’re looking to explore the best of nature, history, culture, and almost everything. Yet, many amazing places in the country are extraordinary and are likely to fade away soon. If this has you fascinated, here are eight such different places in India that you should visit till they exist.
Majuli Island, Assam
Majuli, found in upper Assam, is prominent for being one of the most different wildlife regions in India.
