India Holidays

Snow-capped Himalayan mountains stand majestically and paradoxically to the golden heat of central India. The great expanse of India and its mixing pot of cultures, religions and traditions means that no two places are the same. Discover jaw-dropping architecture, rich and diverse wildlife and awe-inspiring temples. When people think of India they conjure up images of colourful religions and festivals, a blend of economic growth mixed with poverty, and deserts dotted with historic forts and royal palaces.

There is also incredible wildlife such as the Asian elephant and Bengal tiger, found in numerous national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. That most famous memorial to love, of course, is the Taj Mahal. But the most enduring image that you will take away with you is of the people. In its population of more than 1.3 billion there are over 400 different tribal communities, speaking more than 750 different dialects. From the Tamils of the south to the Tibetan people of Ladakh, this mix has come about over thousands of years of invasion, migration and trade. The majority of Indians are Hindus but there are also many other religious denominations such as Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism and Judaism.

Escorted tours are by far the best way to experience India, leaving no stone unturned whilst accompanied by experienced, knowledgeable guides.  The most popular tour to India, certainly for first-timers (and you will almost certainly wish to return), is the Golden Triangle, which takes you to Delhi, Agra (for the Taj Mahal) and Jaipur (for the Pink City and the fort at Amber).  A pleasing dilemma may well be deciding where your second visit will take you.  You may decide to go trekking in the Himalayas (even skiing!), take a cruise along the Ganges, go on a tiger safari, savour an unforgettable rail tour – and maybe finish off with a relaxing beach holiday in Goa.
