Coorg is brimming with natural beauty complete with an expanse of greenery blanketing its turf. Seniors find this quaint city rather alluring with its quietude and close connection with nature. The ‘Scotland of India’, as it is fondly known, lives up to its name with hills overlooking deep valleys. It is lined with plantations, and you will have ample chances to take a stroll along its quiet, meandering paths. Sip on some authentic coffee as you sit in the balcony overlooking terraced gardens with soft wisps of breeze caressing your face.
The abundance of wildlife sanctuaries, such as the Nagarhole National Park and the Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, provides a glimpse of tigers, leopards, deers, Indian bison, wild elephants, and numerous species of birds as well. Coorg is also home to various holy sites such as the Omkareshwar Temple, the Bagamandala temple, the temple of Lord Brahma (one of the few in South Asia) on Talakaveri, and the popular Sri Sringeri Shankar Math, making it the ideal destination where piety meets picturesque natural landscapes.

Senior citizens’ holidays are often centred on spending time leisurely basking in the sun or visiting places of religious significance. However, if you would rather spend your vacation exploring a destination that has it all–from adventure, wildlife to holy places–Ranthambore is an easy pick. The Ranthambore Tiger Reserve is the cherry on the cake with jungle safaris giving you an unveiled view of the wildlife.
Besides that, you can also witness the historical and cultural influences at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ranthambore Fort. Click pictures of one of the largest Banyan trees in India at the Jogi Mahal, watch the sun descend on the waters at the Surwal or the Padam Lake or take a piece of Rajasthani art back home from Dastkar Ranthambore. There is a lot to do in Ranthambore depending on what you or your senior citizen travel group prefers doing. The Trinetra Ganesh Temple also invites religiously inclined elderlies who want to visit one of the oldest temples in Rajasthan and seek blessings from Lord Ganesha’s entire family.

Amritsar And Dharamshala
Another apt destination for those who don’t let age govern their travel experiences is Amritsar. The city of the Golden Temple and Chhole Kulchey offers a lot of wonderful experiences depending on the senior citizen tour you opt for. Take a walk down the pages of history by visiting the Jallianwala Bagh where the infamous massacre martyred many Indians. Visit Wagah Border, the lane between Pakistan and India, and witness the customary parade which is a sight to behold. You can also visit the site of the Granth Sahab at the Guru ke Mahal with its easily accessible roads and senior citizen-friendly hotels that invite anyone looking for an eventful vacation.
Another popular tourist destination closer to Amritsar is Dharamshala. A stark contrast from city life, Dharamshala is flanked by mountains and bears the serenity lent to it by its monasteries. From the scrumptious street food–momos and thukpa–to exploring the monasteries and strolling down lanes bordered by humble houses with faces peaking from within, a trip to Dharamshala will instantly imbue a sense of serenity and bring you closer to nature.
God’s own country deserves a visit, especially when you are retired and have more leisure time on hands. The view of the languid gardens, lazy rivers, forlorn streets lined by greenery and coconut vendors at every nook and corner makes Kerala look straight out of a postcard. A senior citizen tour package of Kerala is a fantastic way to spend some time with your friends as you reminisce the old days and make new memories fishing at one of its ample lakes and rivers. With each tourist destination in Kerala offering its own eccentricities and identities, it is ideal for every type of tourist. Want to soak up the sun on the beaches of Varkala or drink in the view of the gorgeous tree plantations in Munnar? How about a boat ride on the backwaters of Alleppey or simply imbibing the Kerala way of living at its popular town of Kochi?
Truly, Kerala has it all! The never-ending coastlines, verdant greenery, wildlife sanctuaries, pilgrim sites, impressive hill ranges, relaxing and rejuvenating Ayurveda treatments, uninhibited simplicity and humility of the locals, and a platter of delicacies. This sliver of paradise boasts of sun, sand, mountains, and natural landscapes all in one place.
