Being a travel enthusiast myself and having a love for exploring the less explored places in India, I can surely say travelling is always a great experience but to stay on the roads for 200/365 days is not an easy task.
The list has not been made on the basis of number of followers the above instagramers have, but purely on the basis of diversity & beauty of their instagram feed. Surely I would have missed many other leading instagram travel influencers who are doing an equally good job.
