As many beloved spots across India strain under overtourism, the unspoiled journey is now ever more precious. National Geographic Traveller India’s writers have drawn up a list of 62 trips—some faraway, some well-worn, others rising hubs—as alternatives to mainstream experiences. Travel deep into the forests of Meghalaya or enter uncharted territory in the Himalayas. Discover Goa’s secrets (the ‘sunshine state’ still has some!), or the culinary and heritage gems of Odisha. Yes, evergreen locales will remain popular, but in 2020 travel calls for bold thinking.
