Stretching from the frozen barrier of the Himalayas to the tropical greenery of Kerala, and from the sacred Ganges to the sands of the Thar desert, India is a soul-stirring country, overflowing with cultural treasures, spiritual wonder and natural beauty.
It is one of the most diverse nations in the world. In area, it is the seventh largest country, and with over 1.2 billion people, second only to China in population. Within its geographical confines, stretching from the Great Himalayas in the north to the tropical southern peninsula, there is a dizzying variety of cultures, languages, ethnic groups, beliefs and lifestyles that few countries or continents possess. The past is ever-present and centuries-old fort and temples happily co-exist with the modern.
Bamboozling. There’s simply no other word that captures the enigma that is India. With an ability to inspire, frustrate, thrill and confound all at once, India presents an extraordinary spectrum of encounters for the traveller.
It will strike you with a sensory, intellectual, spiritual and philosophical assault that’s unmatched by any other place on earth. No matter how much you have travelled you have never seen anything like India!
Let us take you on a journey that will linger in your mind long after you’ve left India’s shores...
North India exceeds even the most far-fetched fantasies of what India might be: women dazzle in swathes of brilliant bright fabrics, luxuriously mustachioed men drive camels over dunes, tigers and leopards prowl through ancient forests, and princely forts and palaces loom up from the crushingly hot sweep of the Thar Desert.
Located in the Peninsular Deccan plateau, bordered by the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, South India is the subcontinent's heartland. From luscious landscapes to millennial old civilizations'ruins, you will discover a rich variety of different culture, heritage and history!
