India is simply too big for one short visit, so travellers either need to have an independent income to see all the best sights over a period of months, or plan their trip carefully to see visit the top destinations.

If you are an adventurous type of person and don't necessarily want to hit the bright lights of the cities, then here are four of the top amazing places to put on your itinerary.

1) Roopkund Skeleton Lake

Roopkund is known as the Skeleton Lake for good reason. There are hundreds of skeletons there. The glacial lake in the Himalayas is in the state of Uttarakhand in India. The place is uninhabited but it is a popular trekking destination, according to Kohli's book, "The Himalayas: playground of the gods: trekking, climbing, adventure."

Here you will find hundreds of human skeletons along the edge of the lake. They date back to the 9th Century and there is a lot of debate as to their origins.

2) Bhangarh Fort in the Rajasthan state of India

If you love the thrill of haunted places, then this is definitely a place for you to visit. But you can only visit during daylight hours as this is the most haunted place.

The origins of the haunting of the fort which dates back to the 17th Century are many. However, the best-favoured legend involves a wizard.

This legend says that an evil black magic wizard fell in love with Ratnavati, the princess of Bhangarh. To beguile her, he waited until she went to the market and replaced a perfume she wanted to buy with a love potion.

However, she saw through the ploy and threw it onto a boulder. The boulder ran down the hill and crushed the wizard. Before he died he cursed the fort and said that nobody would live within it again.

There are some scary tales of hauntings in the fort. One person was reported by ScoopWhoop to have visited when they were nine-years-old. An old man came up to them and insisted on telling the tale of the fort. They told him to go and when he persisted they walked quickly away. Other people in the group said there was nobody there.

3) The ghost town of west of the desert town of Kuldhara

The ghost town of Kuldhara is about 20 kilometres west of the desert town of Jaisalmer in Rajasthan, India.

It is a dry and dusty place that was last inhabited about 200 years ago. Once, during the reign of powerful kings, The Better India relates that it was the home of the Paliwal Brahmins.

Salim Singh, the Diwan of Jaisalmer, lusted for the daughter of the village chief. He was known for being particularly debauched and he warned the residents that nobody must come between him his desire to acquire the beautiful girl. One day, the sun arose to an empty village. Over a thousand of the residents had fled in the night, and nobody knows where they went. Legend has it they cursed the place when they departed.

Today it is maintained as a Heritage Site by the Archaeological Survey of India.

4) The living tree bridges of Cherrapunji, India

The India-Bangladesh border in the north-west is one of the wettest places on the Asian continent. The Ficus elastica or Indian Rubber tree thrives in this climate. Like many trees of the fig species around the world, roots grow from above the ground.

Local tribespeople noticed this and started twining them together to create natural bridges that can be used to cross rivers. These living bridges are sometimes trained across wooden scaffolding. When they reach the other bank, they are allowed to take root and thus, a living bridge is formed.

How's that for eco-friendly?
