Let’s admit it: We have become a part of an internet-savvy society that lives life as per demands of notification. Whether to check emails, replying to messages or surfing randomly, we barely keep ourselves away from the smartphones. No wonder, we’ve forgotten how to connect with ourselves even on vacations.
In order to solve this problem, we have compiled a list of some quaintest destinations in India where there is a poor or absolutely no network reception.
So if you’re planning to embark for a break in the proper sense, just pack your bags and head to these amazing places.

A tehsil or sub-district of Kargil, Zanskar lies in the eastern side of the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. Hikers and mountaineers from all parts of the world come here to scale the famed Zanskar range that separates the sub-district from Ladakh. Situated at roughly 25,000 feet above sea level, this place will definitely make you forget the sound of your notifications.
2. Kheerganga, Himachal Pradesh.
