While India has often been seen as the spiritual getaway that weary souls look for, there is a lot to this country! With stunning mountains, forests and wildlife sanctuaries, you can be sure of an experience like no other. Mixed in with natural beauty are bustling cities, many of which rival other international getaways! With many states and districts to choose from, this is one destination that needs a lot of time and planning!
Start off with New Delhi, the capital of the country! Visit the Red Fort, the Lotus Temple or India Gate. Try not to get lost in the bustling Chandni Chowk or the convoluting by-lanes of Old Delhi. Other cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Cochin are also worth visiting. Some hot-spots that are definitely worth planning for include the Taj Mahal, the backwaters of Kerela, the Agra Fort as well as the mystical Leh and Ladakh!
Apart from just destinations, though, India is also a hot-bed of activities that will definitely take your breath away. Take some time out to go and see a vintage car rally in Jaipur. Go diving or snorkelling with an elephant (yes, you read that correctly!) while enjoying the Andaman experience. Soak in the sights of a snake boat race in Kerala. Go off-roading in the picturesque Kutch. You should also visit the Karni Mata temple, participate in the Kumbh Mela, watch a game of Elephant Polo in Rajasthan and go for a Yak Safari in Ladakh!
While travelling is an important part of an Indian experience, the food of this country is an experience that is unrivalled. Go in for a plate of Masala Dosa, try out some of that spicy Chicken Tikka Masala and keep some space for a serving of Hyderabadi Biryani! You should also dedicate a meal to trying out some freshly made Korma, a plate of Rogan Josh as well as some Bhuna. Many regions of the country are also known for their street food culture. Try out a plate or two of Pani Puri, some Pav Bhaji or a plate or three of Tandoori Chicken!
Sights and tastes are not the only thing that India is famous for, though. With an expansive list of extreme sports to choose from, you can be sure of that adrenaline surge wherever you may go. Depending on where you visit, you can go skiing, hot air ballooning, kiteboarding, surfboarding, scuba diving, bungee jumping and white water rafting.
