Once little more than a dull and comparatively unknown suburb of the national capital region, today, Gurgaon is not only one of the most urbanised cities of India, but it also boasts of a skyline that can easily rival those of Hong Kong and Singapore. Easily accessible from Delhi and Noida, Gurgaon is fast becoming a popular travel destination among holidaymakers. Starting from natural treasures to a flourishing lifestyle and a vibrant nightlife, Gurgaon has everything you could need.
Contrary to what you might expect from a landlocked city, Gurgaon actually has quite a few attractions for nature lovers. Home to a vast variety of unique flora and fauna as well as bird species, the Sultanpur National Park and Bird Sanctuary is a place where you can go to sit back and relax amidst nature. Another popular tourist attraction is the Sohna Lake, which is named after a stream whole sand is believed to contain gold particles (thus the name 'Sohna'). Offering a scenic view of the Aravalli mountains, the Sohna Lake is a popular picnic spot among both locals and tourists. The largest natural lake of the city, however, is Damdama Lake, which apart from being a place where you can lie back and unwind, also offers adventure activities such as kayaking, rock climbing, boating and valley crossing. You can even sit and fish at the lake as you watch the sunset behind the Aravallis, painting the sky magnificent hues of red and orange.
