Or go at all...

India is a land of beautiful natural reserve. Very few countries in the world have the bio diversity in the world like India. Deserts, snow capped mountains, marshes, forests and vast plains, it is a nature lovers wet dream.

But there are pockets in this wilderness which are not meant for humans. A stronghold of the paranormal, you would go there only at your own risk. But do know, you were warned. 

1. Bhangarh Fort

No one goes to Bangarh before sunrise and after sunset. Imagine hearing this from a shifty eyed local, and you might think you're on a Vikram Bhatt set. But Bangarh has a bad reputation and is officially declared as a haunted place by the ASI. Unofficially, it's called the Indian Ghost Town.

The story behind Bhangarh's haunting is something out of a Harry Potter book. It's said a sorcerer lived in the fort, and fancied the princess. When he could not get her, he cast a dark spell on all people living in the fort, dooming them and the place for life. 

2. Dumas Beach, Surat, Gujarat

This is one hell of a freaky place. It's said to have been used as a cremation ground for Hindus. Don't know if that's still the case today, but the place seems to have had its fill. There have been reportings of people hearing whispers even when the beach was secluded. A day trip is not recommended, because people have known to disappear.   

3. Tunnel No 103: Shimla - Kalka Line

They say Colonel Barog still lives there. If you're wondering why the hell is that so scary, then you should know that Colonel Barog died more than fifty years ago. Creepy?

Colonel Barog was the architect of this tunnel on the Shimla-Kalka line. Due to gross miscalculation, the work went somewhat wrong. Colonel Barog was fined and humiliated for his inaptitude, due to which he committed suicide in the tunnel. Since that day, he's never left the tunnel. Care for a ride? 

4. Dow Hill, West Bengal

Amidst the lush beauties of Deer Park and Forest Museum are the hauntings of Dow Hill of Kurseong. The corridors of the school and the forest woods are known for many paranormal activities. 

5. Jatinga Valley, Assam

Nothing can be more freaky than animals committing suicide. And yet it happens in Jatinga Valley of Assam. Every year in September, over a particular stretch, as the moon lights up the night sky, birds drop to the hard ground. And die.

Birds migrate to this place every year but not one of them flies back. Scientists have been investigating, but are still baffled. You can almost imagine the bird families back home screaming: Don't go to India. The palce is freaking dangerous for tourists. 


6. Aleya Ghost Lights, Bengal

Imagine you're in one of those houseboats over the serpentive rivers of the Bengal marshes, and somewhere in the distance you see a light. A glow which has no business being there. Positively a ghost!

There is no explanation to these lights. The local fishermen believe that the lights are signs that there exist spirits of fishermen who may have died on those areas.

7. Borivali National Park, Mumbai

As you drive down the Green Lungs of Mumbai, a woman, supposedly a dead hitchhiker, will ask you for a lift. Do not stop! Press down on that accelerator and get out of that place as soon as you can.

She's a spirit and there have been reports of freak encounters in the woods. And not just leopards. 

8. Sathyamangalam Wildlife Sanctuary, Tamil Nadu

This beautiful forest is referred to as the most haunted place in Tamil Nadu. The green here is so dark, it's almost black; and hiding in it's dark heart are wild sightings. White ghosts like wisps of fog. Not a great place to be. 

9. Delhi Cantonment, Delhi

Much like the Borivali National Park of Mumbai, Delhi Cantt. is a green lung of the city. But drive down the narrow road which takes you to the other side of the city, and you might have the bad privilege to meet the 'Lady in White'. They say she'll try to flag you down, and when she doesn't see you slowing, she might just come and stand in the path of the car.

If you still don't stop, you find her racing alongside the car, no matter what speed you're driving at. And she'll cross you, and wait for you again.

Damn, I'm never taking that road!

10. Roopkund Lake, Uttarakhand

This seems like a site of mass massacre. On the banks of the lake, bones of more than 200 people have been found. It's suspected that there are more at the bottom of the lake. And so, this beautiful lake more than 16,000 feet above sea level is also known as Skeleton Lake.

There is no explanation for this mass graveyard high up in the mountains. The skeletons reveal that everyone was hit on the head and shoulder with round, blunt object. What kind of madness could have caused it? Your guess is as good as mine.

11. Ghats of Mathura, UP

These ghats are ancient and sit lazily on the banks of Yamuna. A little down the river, on a small hill is the castle of Kans. The real castle of the demon. But it's not Kans who haunts the ghats at night. It is screams of women coming from the black waters of the river. It's said that the ghats aren't a safe place to loiter at night. Because, it's possible that you'll hear screams for help, and see hands of drowning women swaying wildly. You might be compelled to dive in to save them. And then you'll become one of them. Never to return.

(This might just be a folk tale as there is no proof anywhere of it happening.)
