Jammu and Kashmir have always been so famous for the picturesque landscape. Be it for road trips, trekking or a honeymoon destination, it has always been one of the most preferred destination. Remember the trek of Ranbir and Deepika to the haunted mountain? It was shot in Kongdori, Gulmarg.
5/. Nahargarh Fort, Rajasthan:
How can we forget the favorite spot of Amir Khan and his gang in Rang Dey Basanti? Though the whole movie is shot all over India, the well at Nahargarh Fort is something noticeable. The meaning behind Nahargarh Fort’s name is ‘abode of tigers’ and was never attacked in the course of its history.
6/. Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Church, Goa:

7/. Athirapally Falls, Kerala:
Athirapally Waterfalls, Kerala is in so many movies, but we would surely remember it for the very recent Bahubali. Descending from a majestic height (with a little bit of VFX), Athirapally Falls looks amazing in the movie. Even before Bahubali, many movies were shot here but never looked so bewitching.
