We invited readers to send in their favourite travel pic -- that one photograph that perfectly captures the beauty of a place they visited. In response, readers have sent in wonderful photographs from all across India. Here we feature some of the photographs readers sent in:

First up is Praveen Kutaphale's picture of Thoseghar waterfalls near Satara in Maharashtra. The best time to visit this village in the Sahyadri Hills is during the monsoons when the waterfall is in full force.

"Samrat Banerjee write: "I had taken this picture from a remote village called Borong in South Sikkim when I visited in May this year. This place is a trekker's paradise and is situated 20 km from the nearest town, Ravangla. I had taken this picture of Mt Norbu in the early morning and the view was breathtaking. The tranquility and remoteness of Borong is what I liked most."
