India has all this and more. Backwater canals and tropical forests, rugged hill towns, river estuaries, wooded swamps and glacial meadows. Regions unattainable by road, places unexplored. The suavity of city dwellers contrasts sharply with aboriginal tribes who still lead their sheltered existence unhindered by the spread of civilization.
India’s history goes back to 3200 BC when Hinduism was first founded. Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam all exist within the country today of more than one billion people.
Today’s visitors revel in the fantastic breadth of history left by a stream of dynasties and conquerors. British Raj relics, Portuguese churches, Rajput forts, Mughal palaces, Buddhist stupas, Jain and Hindu temples all create an unforgettable, incredible diverse horizon. Apart from these cultural landmarks, India’s calendar is studded with extraordinary festivals that offer rare, highly-charged experiences that could be the highlight of our trip. This is the moment when you become more than just a tourist and actually penetrate the living traditions of India and its people.
