Did you discover it, yet?Imagine if Pinterest and Instagram had a travel baby, that would be Trover; except, smarter and without all the pointless information. Tailor-made for, and by, travellers, Trover has people uploading their ‘discover­ies’ from around the world along with the location of the place to let fellow travellers know exactly where they unearthed this beautiful landscape. Most discoveries are accompanied by descriptions and local experiences, which provide a deeper understanding for other trovers. Exceptional in planning a travel itinerary, Trover shows discoveries displayed in order of distance from your desired location, showing the closest on top and going further away as you keep scrolling.

The website also has a small distance tab on the left and a virtual map on top to give you a better idea of where you’re placed. The ‘Explore’ option allows you to filter your searches in categories like food, history, etc and every time you come across something that catches your eye, you can add it to your list—almost like a virtual bucket list, of sorts. A perfect travel planning—as well as on the road—website, Trover is almost addictive as it cashes in on the Gen Y trend of having all infor­mation available in one place, sans all the pain of having to do multiple Google searches. With detailed images of destina­tions in both India and around the world, you’re just one click away from your dream travel; real or otherwise.
