India offers visitors a wide variety of entirely different experiences. These extremes are due to India’s vast size and enormous population which acts as an intersection of wealth and poverty, a mix of religions and languages. The diversity of India continues throughout the landscape where the Himalayas meet the lush forests which span to the Thar Desert.
The interwoven lifestyles found in India ensure a great variety of things to see and do. The possibilities are as limitless as the languages spoken so you can take in the country’s natural wonders with a safari expedition, or a stroll down to the banks of the Ganges to catch a glimpse of the sacred river, or immerse yourself in the essence of India by wandering through a bazaar and smelling the fresh spices and examining the brightly coloured and intricately detailed saris or joining in the celebration at one of the many religious festivals. Some travellers find these extremes in geography and lifestyle overwhelming, but it is the thriving merger of these extremes that gives India the colour and chaos that make up its spirit.
