we have mentioned here important tips and information about Most visiting tourist spots in India.Tourism is travel for recreational, leisure or business purposes. The World Tourism Organization defines tourists as people who "travel to and stay in places outside their usual environment for more than twenty-four (24) hours and not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes not related to the exercise of an activity remunerated from within the place visited. Making a holiday involving an overnight stay away from the normal place of residence. This is in contrast to recreation which involves leisure activities lasting less than twenty-four hours.

Top Tourist Spots In India.
1) WILD LIFE
a) Corbett National park
Nestled in the foothills of the Kumaon Himalayas in Uttaranchal, and just a stone throw away from the verdant summer-retreat Nainital is one of the safest havens of Indian wildlife – the Corbett National Park. The legendary hunter-naturalist turned author Jim Corbett spent the most eventful chunk of his life here and two years after his death, the once Hailey National Park, was rechristened in 1957. Other than frequent, but sudden sighting of the Big Cats amongst its mammoth Sal trees, Corbett National Park boasts of being the progenitor of the Project Tiger (1973) in India – the magna carta of tiger conservation.
Buy one of the Jim Corbett novels from the book-stores at the resorts to read during those frosty nights and feel your spine tingle at the thought of a man eater lurking right outside your window. Incase, you are frightened, please remember Jim Corbett’s man eaters belong to the 1940s when this area was "where
The Birds are also a very important part of the Corbett National Park with 549 different bird types found within the park boundaries.
Many people visit the Corbett National Park, purely to see the bird life.
Animals – Some 50 different species live within the park, 20 of which are regularly seen.
These include the big cats, tiger (some 130), Leopards (100+), elephants (600+), to 40,000 deer of different species. You will also find two types of crocodiles (400+), some 20,000 monkeys, others and much more
b) Kaziranga National Park
The Karbi hills of Assam dilute into a plush wooded grassland to shelter the endangered one-horned Rhino (Rhinoceros Unicornis), on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra river. They call it Kaziranga, an UNESCO World Heritage Site for serving as the only sanctuary of its pride-of-place – the rhinos. Come monsoon and the forest is submerged by the backflow of the Brahmaputra. But Kaziranga and her denizens have learned to live with the floods and it raises itself phoenix-like every year.
Hunted mercilessly for its horn, that resembles that of the legendary Unicorns, and is believed to have aphrodisiac properties, India once woke up with only a handful of them. A lore dates back to the British era when the then Viceroy’s wife, Lady Curzon was so disheartened to find no rhino at Kaziranga, that she impressed upon her husband to help save the animal. Today a 100 years later, in what can be called this Century’s Greatest Conservation Success Story, the Rhino population at 1600 is the single largest in the world!
2) Hills stations
Shimla is perhaps the most picturesque town that you would come across on your tour of north India. During the British era, Shimla was the summer retreat and was renowned as the “Queen of the Hills”. Its topography is characterized by undulating hills, lush green valleys, garrulous rivers, dense woods and a pleasant climate that makes it an ideal getaway from the din and rush of the plains. The old world charm still comes to life here as it is dotted with a number of colonial buildings and churches that also accentuate the exquisiteness of this town. Besides, you will also encounter several tourist attractions in Shimla that are worth catching a glimpse such as:
The seven picturesque hills of Shimla are in Southern Himachal, 117 km from Chandigarh. This once favorite summer retreat of the erstwhile Britons have so changed over the years that if the souls of its founders are to be come back for a dekko, they would either be saddened or gladdened to see it transform into the poshest of tourist magnets amongst the Himalayan hill-stations. The Mall street is lined with branded showrooms, the city is studded with hep resorts and out of every seven heads, one is a rtourist. Considering the phenomenal tourist hobnob, at times, slicing out your space – so wanting of such laid-back vacations – may be difficult in a place Shimla. This difficulty is promptly attended to with the neighboring getaways, the resorts, the golf at Naldehra and skiing at Kufri and Narkanda, and Shimla continues to charm her visitors.
Darjeeling in India owes’ its grandeur to its natural beauty, its clean fresh mountain air and above all, the smiling resilient people for whom it is a home. Known for its natural splendor, Darjeeling’s best gift to its’ visitors is the dawn of a new day. The mountains awaken first with a tentative peeking of the sun. A steep ride, five kilometers from Ghoom, or an invigorating walk up a steep incline, leads sun worshippers to Tiger Hill. The air is chilly with darkness and damp. To the east, a dull orange sun emerged painting the sky with brilliant strokes of magenta, gold, orange and fuchsia. The snow capped Everest, Kabru, Kanchenjunga, Jannu and other peaks slowly emerge from slumber to start a new day. The sun worshippers gasp at the magnificent sight. As the fog lifts in the slowly penetrating sun, the town gradually comes alive. Amidst brewing of tea, the sing-song Gorkhali which is the local dialect, rises and falls like music.At an elevation of 6812 ft., this West Bengal hill-station, with its monasteries and tea gardens set against the snow-capped vistas of the world’s third-highest mountain, Mount Kanchenjunga (27,400 ft.), is just the perfect retreat if the mention of a cozy vacation peppered with adventure escapades ticks you on. Just as the flight of your imagination begins to take off, a quaint whistle of a century old little train penetrates the vista and you are reminded once again – it is Darjeeling
