In India, there are many different places where one can enjoy the star gazing. This is turning out to be a great way of feeling closer to nature in the purest form. The craze is so high that people are ready to travel thousands of miles in order to get the glimpse the starry sky in all its glory.
Ladakh– In north, Leh Ladakh is the most favourite tourist destination not just for the younger lot, but the older ones as well.

Andaman– This little island located in the south most part of the country is known for its beaches in the daytime and for the star gazing in the night.

The daytime can be spent trekking on the Nilgiri hills while the nights can be waited all day just to have the look at the sky when the stars shine. However, the place is yet to be recognized as one good tourist spot in the area but the star gazing alone has managed to increase the flow of the tourists to a great extent.
