Complete guide on India Travel
India – the land to travel to, a haven of tourism delights, a
civilization to tour through. Tourists come to India for its wealth
of sights, cultural
exuberance, diversity of terrain and in search of that special
something, an extra punch that only India promises and delivers. Teeming
with over a billion people who voice over a million concerns in fifteen
hundred different languages, India is where people live with variety,
thrive on diversity and are too familiar with largeness to let it
boggle them. Mud huts and mansions face off across city streets. Lurid
luxury and limp living are inhabitants of the same lane.
From the smoky mangroves of the Sunderbans to the steaming Thar
Desert, sizzling cities like Mumbai and Delhi
to the scintillating villages of Khajuraho
from the heights of the Himalayas to the deep blue waters around
India is travel heavan – a tour package that frustrates and
delights, as demanding as it is rewarding.
demands that the traveller be prepared for its own strange forms

at Haridwar, for high commercialism at spiritual retreats. But equally,
it means that he be prepared for an overwhelming warmth in the people,
ease of conversation, and to be stunned into speechlessness by the
beauty, sometimes the manmade and often the natural.
But what exactly is it that gets two and a half million people
to pack their bags, book their tickets, buy industrial size cans
of suntan lotion and enough toilet paper to supply the entire population
of Liechtenstein for a month, and wing their way to India? Given
that this is the land of the Taj,
granted too that tea, tobacco, tempestuous democracy and terrific
travel are a great combination but surely that's not reason enough.
must be more because between truisms and half-truths, India has
inspired more than any one place's fair share of travel lore. And,
perhaps that's what it is - the legends of India - that's what inspires
people from far and near to travel here, to sort out for themselves
what's true and what's just a whole lot of tourism pamphlet hype.
If that's what you're going to be doing, here's a bit of India
tourism mantra to help you on your way: expect nothing and everything
will be yours.
