India Travel Information

Where to start? It is hard to express in words how diverse and incredible India is, and the country would take a lifetime to truly see and understand.

 

Although at times challenging, the real source of enjoyment you gain from traveling through India would have to be in its simple charm, its frenetic streets, its gazing eyes, its colorful spices, its raucous bazaars and its unparalleled beauty (apart from perhaps the beauty of its majestic neighbor - Nepal).

Where to start? It is hard to express in words how diverse and captivating travel to India can be, and the country would take a lifetime to truly see and understand.

Although at times challenging, the real source of enjoyment you gain from India would have to be in its simple charm, its frenetic streets, its gazing eyes, its colorful spices, its raucous bazaars and its unparalleled beauty. Each step on Indian soil is an onslaught for the senses. There’s a discovery to be made around every corner, giving India a fair claim to be the true traveler’s country. Put simply, India will blow your mind.

Best time of the year to visit India?

Generally speaking, the worst time to visit India is during monsoon season (between the months of June to October), however, that is when I traveled through India and didn't come across any problems.

The best months to travel to India are between November and February, when the monsoons are completely gone and the weather is fair.

Summer months are also popular between March-May but the heat can be quite overwhelming at times. The mountains are perfect to visit during the summer months because of the clear sky and soothing air.

Anyone left unsatisfied after their India travels, it’s only because you were simply craving more of this infectious beauty.

Food and Culture of India

Exhilarating for the first time traveler and a challenge even for the more experienced of you, traveling to India is a great way to see the intense spirituality and profound religious meaning that is linked so inextricably with Indian life. A trip to the Ganges river will be one to savor, at whatever point you are along the symbolic river, especially if it's down by a burning Ghat in Varanasi. Furthermore, visits to various temples, forts and religious ceremonies are equally as awe-inspiring.

People celebrate Indian food worldwide but it's not until you complete a tour of this desirable country that you realize the beauty and meaning of Indian food. Northern curries, swept up with chapati bread are prevalent throughout and the irresistible dosa of the south serves a mouth-watering selection of pancake wrapped sauces and flavors. Additionally, delve into creamy lentil dishes or soak it down with a refreshing kingfisher beer. Temptingly cheap and consistently satisfying, Indian cuisine is a way of life.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in India

Taj Mahal tours are just one reason to head north, but with the nearby bustling capital of New Delhi, adventure trips to the Himalayan regions of Kashmir (containing treks that are comparable in beauty to neighboring Nepal and Bhutan), the inconceivably attractive region of Rajasthan (a must see), along with the famous golden triangle, India in the north is nothing short of spectacular.

The city of Agra (location of Taj Mahal) isn't worth staying in any longer than the time you have allocated for the precious Taj Mahal, so swiftly move on to the much more appealing Varanasi to the east or New Delhi to the west. Varanasi, a world away from the comforts of home you are probably used to, is the most shocking and overwhelming of Indian cities, predominantly down to its profound spiritual levels.
Head to the very east to the vibrant Kolkata, the hugely populated Indian city where space is scarce and desperation coexists with a thriving intellectual and cultural scene. North from Delhi are tours and treks of Kashmir, offering scintillating hiking trails and picturesque scenery. Hang out with the hippies and meditate, practice yoga or simply brush up on your Buddhist knowledge in the popular retreat of McLeod Ganj (suburb of Dharamshala).

A tour around Rajasthan is top priority. With an array of charming cities and diverse colors, it is essential that you don't miss this experience. Jaipur is the most popular, with its pink walled citadel and its magical lake palace, but for me, Jodhpur (the blue city) steals all the thunder (not just because blue is my favorite color). The vast amount of conjoined blue merges into one miraculous blue facade, best observed from the top of Mehrangarh fort.

From the pink and blue city, head west to Jaisalmer, a desert city made of sandstone with a large fort overlooking the city. Take desert trips and sleep under the starry desert sky while your camel waits to plod you back to your hotel.

Udaipur is next on your tour. The 'romantic city' is the setting for the James Bond film 'Octopussy' and so many of the opulent palaces and grand hotels are instantly recognizable. Udaipur is also home to some fine restaurants and an abundance of great artisan stores. Do not miss the sunrise/sunset on your stay in this Indian gem.

South India holidays are just as wonderful, with options ranging from the cool and thriving metropolis of Mumbai where university culture mixes with fascinating history, the beach holidays and party holidays of Goa where trance pilgrims and luxury resort seekers head and the labyrinth of seductive waterways of Kerala. The appeal in south India lies not only in its landscape but also in its flawless cuisine. It is here, the home of the Dosa, where arguably the best Indian food originates.

M Pinder, May 2017

We tailored a trip our needs and wants. Very helpful. We did run into a snag as the guide for a couple of days were not aware of what was planned on itinerary. Company was responsive to changes we made along way.

Kathi Lynn Hammer, April 2017

Amit and his team were attentive to every detail to make our first experience in India memorable. We had excellent accommodations, drivers, local tour guides, and a full itinerary. All questions were answered promptly and everything went beyond smoothly. I highly recommend Amit and Trip.me. Our trip exceeded our expectations on every level!! Thank you all!

I had the most amazing time in India and Nepal. The 17 days i spent there will remain burned into my memory for the rest of my life. Amit did an excellent job of listening to my suggestions as well as providing options and suggestions of his own. It took over 2 months to plan my trip and Amit was very patient and helpful through the whole process. I would recommend trip.me and Amit as a wonderful way visit this amazing part of the world.

Out trip was tailor-made to our specification and it worked perfectly. We made a few minor adjustments while we were in India, some at short notice, which were dealt with immediately and effectively. While I never met Amit I was met by some of his team who met us with our drivers or taking us to/from trains. All of the team performed to a very high standard.

She was amazing.
Although it was a little lonely traveling alone as a woman and also getting service as a woman. But that was not her fault.
