Elegant. Unique. Vibrant. Diverse. India is an amalgam of everything that these words signify and yet, so much more. Once, one of the richest empires in all the land, it became the twinkle in the eye of various colonists and conquerors. If there is one country in the world where anybody and everybody in the spectrum of different travellers will find joy, it is India. A nation infamous for its unfathomable enormity of culture and diversity, coupled with a plethora of holidaying attractions varying from one corner to the other, you’d be hard pressed to find this place unsatisfying. The Taj Mahal is as beautiful as they say it is and the forts of Rajasthan still stand strong perched on the hilltops of the Aravallis. The Himalayas up north shelter simple and quaint villages along with India’s most famous hill-stations. The jungles here provide safe haven to the endangered Tiger and various species of wildlife. A tour of India will never be complete without a houseboat ride on the backwaters of Kerala and its fiery cuisine. Nowhere in your holidays across the world would you come across the ‘Living Root Bridges’ as you would do while trekking the rainforests of Meghalaya. The white salt-plains of the Great Rann of Kutch run as far as your eyes can see and sparkle during the full-moon nights. Planning a vacation in India covering all these amazing places might be a tough task, but then again, vacations sound better when the period is long.
