5 stunning border destinations in India

India has an incredibly diverse topography, with landscapes changing frequently over short distances. Travellers with a thirst for discovery can visit any of the nation’s numerous border locations to witness these geographical shifts directly. While some border regions are perfect for casual strolls, others demand permission to enter neighbouring countries.

Here are 5 stunning border destinations in India


1. Wagah Border, Punjab

The Indo-Pak border at Wagah border, close to Amritsar, is well-known for its vibrant beating retreat border ceremony. The pomp of the Beating Retreat is a must-see. The Indian and Pakistani forces provide an entertaining show. Every day, in the evening, both countries hold a flag-lowering ceremony.

2. Moreh, Manipur

Moreh town is located on the Indo-Burmese border. A land bridge connects Moreh to Myanmar. Moreh, which is located close to the India-Myanmar border, is a shopping paradise. Moreh also has a similar culture and lifestyle to Tamu, a town just 5 kilometres across the border.

3. Dhanushkodi, Tamil Nadu

4. Dawki, Shillong

This small border is situated in Meghalaya’s West Jaintia Hills area. Travelers come here from all over the world to witness its natural beauty. The Dawki or Umngot River, which flows through this northeastern location, is renowned for its cleanliness and its connection with Bangladesh.
