Would you believe if we tell you that there is a place in the world that looks like the famous Rann of Kutch? 
Would you believe if we tell you that there is a place in the world that looks like the famous Rann of Kutch? 
And, how would you react to finding a Niagara Falls in India itself? Also, you might rethink visiting Scotland if we suggest you to visit Coorg in India to get a similar experience! 
So, the catch is that the Creator of the world did not make some of the world’s most famous destinations unique–there exist places in the world that closely resemble some destinations in India. Know more about them ahead. 
Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world. In prehistoric times, a lake used to exist at the same site that later dried up. Now, it is a salty desert spread over an area of 11000 sq km. The landscape featuring cacti, rock formations, and aloofness can be seen from the central Incahuasi Island. 
And, Rann of Kutch, Gujarat
The Rann of Kutch in Gujarat is like the alter ego of Salar de Uyuni. It is a salt marsh located in the Thar desert region of Kutch district. Size-wise, the Rann of Kutch extends for 7500 sq km. It draws several tourists, photographers and movie-makers from across India. 
2. Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
Niagara Falls is the single name given to three waterfalls that flow on the border of Canada and the United States of America. These waterfalls are renowned throughout the world for their majesty. 
And, Chitrakoot Waterfalls, Chhattisgarh, India
India, too, has its own smaller version of the Niagara Falls in the form of Chitrakoot Waterfalls. It falls from a height of 100 ft as compared to the Niagara Falls that falls from a height of 176 ft. Located near Jagdalpur city in Chattisgarh, Chitrakoot Waterfalls has its source in the great Indravati river. 
3. Scotland, Europe
Scotland is a country that needs no introduction. It is loved for its pristine mountains. Many people around the world visit Scotland to experience living in its fairytale-like castles and romantic hills. 
And, Coorg, Karnataka 
Located in the magical mountains of the Western Ghats in Karnataka, Coorg or Kodagu is also called the ‘Scotland of India’. As is Manali in north India, so is Coorg in South India. It is famous for its beautiful waterfalls, temples, forts and forests. 
4. The Coloured Island, Burano, Italy
Burano is a cluster of four small islands connected via bridges and identified by their block coloured, brightly painted houses. The practice of painting houses in this pattern has been going on for decades. 
And, the French Colony, Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu
Pondicherry looks very much like Burano. The French Colony in Pondicherry takes the visitor to another world. The vintage houses painted in bright and pastel hues makes Pondy looks anything but a Tamilian coastal town. 
5. Sahara Desert, Morocco, Africa 
As the hottest and largest desert in the world, the Sahara Desert in Africa is meant to be visited only by the braveheart. Nonetheless, there have been instances of light snowfall at night in this region. 
And, Thar Desert, Jaisalmer, Rajasthan
On the other hand, the Thar Desert in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer city, is a wonderful tourist attraction resembling the Sahara Desert. Tourists can enjoy camel rides, desert safari and photography while touring the Thar Desert.
