India Tours – A Journey to the Most Astonishing Land of Beauty at All Levels

Capturing India in words or pictures is difficult. Its vast expansive lands, its colors, its spirituality, its arts, its gaiety and essence of its close-knit social fabric can only be experienced.

 

As you ride the camel into the fading orange glow of profound sunsets at Sam Sand Dunes of Jaisalmer, you can feel the horizons of your vision, your imagination, and your fantasy expanding. The oriental feel throughout the country has enough variations to keep most elaborate of your India Tours full of excitement and surprises.

 

One of the best mega diversity hotspots of the world, India's amazing tropical rainforests in Northeast and Western Ghats are known to have more endemic species than anywhere else in the world. India is perhaps the only country to have as many as 10 bio-geographic zones on display. National Parks of high Himalayas; Snow leopards, and mountain goats in the Trans Himalayan zone; Tiger Reserves, best bird sanctuaries and desert reptiles of Rajasthan; and rich and unique flora and fauna of South India are among the favorite tourist attractions for inbound India tourists and wildlife enthusiasts.

 

The emerald green Kerala backwaters reflecting the lush foliage on both the sides relate to the heart in more ways than one. The luxury houseboat cruises through small isolated island villages of Kerala, traditional canoes ferrying people and products to and fro from major urban areas of the state, beautiful fishes swimming along with your boat and sounds of Nature in the early mornings are some of the most romantic experiences that all honeymoon couples want to treasure. A heady mix of crisp, clean and fresh air and fabulous views of pleasantly cool rolling Blue Mountains or Nilgiris, as you stroll through aromatic tea, coffee, and spice plantations, will make your want for more.

 

The special effects of India are undoubtedly its forts and palaces and grand heritage monuments that display the grandeur and splendor of Rajas, Maharajas, Samraats and Nawabs of the bygone eras. The Land of Rajputs Rajasthan is famous for expansive strategically built forts on hilltops, legendary castles and delicate palaces that are a delight for one's eyes. Some of these forts are in ruins but there are some that stand in pristine conditions to this day. Incredibly convoluted architecture, opulent and plush interiors and amazing views from palatial forts that have now been converted into luxury heritage hotels are an experience that will get etched in your memory forever. A luxurious bubble bath in a sunken marble tub is not the only fantasy that you can fulfill at these fort palaces. In fact, these possessions of nobility are bastions of luxury that feature unmatched services that reminisce of the power and comfort that royal visitors once enjoyed.

 

A feast for the senses has to be good for soul. Nothing is more dramatic and awe-inspiring than the temples, mosques, gurudwaras, churches, and synagogues of India. The drawing power of its pilgrimage places and religious destinations, the exceptional Buddhist and Jain Temples, and the number of devotees who flock to its religious fairs and festivals held at Gompas in Leh and Ladakh, and Pushkar and Ajmer at Rajasthan make us wonder about what is really attractive - the places or the people themselves. India offers beauty that encompasses Mind, Body, and Soul as well as a holistic tourism experience for one and all.
