Raksha Bandhan or shall I say Rakhi is one of the most prominent and auspicious Indian festivals. This very day celebrates the relationship of love and duty of all men for their sisters. But, you might still be thinking that something more special should be done for your sisters this year to appreciate your special bond with her.
Apart from the usual delights like gifts, chocolates and blessings, this year an additional surprise of taking them on a tour would get them squealing in joy.
Here are a few places you can take your sisters to.
Take a heritage walk in the capital city
Saddi Dilli offers a range of options for the wanderer in you. Let this walk be a walk down the memory lane. The historical ruins of Mehrauli and Hauz Khas have a number of stories associated with them. Go back to your history lessons together. Alternatively, you may walk through the lanes of old Delhi, enjoy street food at its best, visit the religious sites and shops that are as old as a century.
Go trekking in Pin Parvati Pass, Himachal
Throwing snowballs at each other and doing adventure sports like trekking on the mountains would bring back those childhood memories of yours. Not only this, while going through the mountains you would come across a few monasteries if you route through Pin Parvati Pass. On one side, there’s the Himachali culture of Kullu and on the other side, there’s Spiti Valley – the little Tibet. This is surely going to be an enthralling getaway for any tough sibling team.

What’s better than a camping trip with your sibling in Rishikesh. For all those who are seeking a slightly unconventional way to celebrate this trip may camp at Chandertal Lake in Himachal Pradesh.
