What makes India awesome for Travel?

Ok. Picture this.

You have the towering Himalayas at the North-East, Crystal waters with powdery sand beaches of Andamans, stunning architecture of the Hampi empire, wondrous Taj Mahal, the psychedelic colors of Rajasthan, prodigious wildlife of Gir, the under-rated Chitrakoot falls, the frolic of Goa and add in the mix, the array of cuisine and cultures.

Now pause for a breath!

I can do this all day. And I still wouldn’t even have scratched the surface what India can offer to a curious tourist.

Wеlсоmе tо the lаnd оf bеаutу, rоуаltу, grandeur, devotion аnd lоvе!

Wеlсоmе to Indіа – one of the fаѕtеѕt grоwіng tourism markets in the world. Indіа is a place that hаѕ a реrfесt blend оf architectural beauty, nаturаl wonders, hоlу pilgrimages, enchanting wіldlіfе аnd еxсіtіng аdvеnturе ѕроrtѕ.

  1. You’ve sold India to me undoubtedly! I have been before and spent a month roaming the beautiful country but surely, I would need a million lifetimes to cover half of what I’d like to! Next time, I need venture to Jaisalmer, Amritsar, and Kashmir!

  2. Actually never thought of traveling to India but after the explanation you gave this feeling there is also interesting about that country that is still a lot hidden. Maybe next trip thank you.

  3. India has been one of our favorite countries that we have ever visited. We spent 5 weeks there and I feel like we have only scratched the surface. Like you said there is just so much to see and do and eat. The culture changes as you travel East to West and North to South, but everyone we met there was friendly and wonderful. We’ll be back soon! PS. Your picture of the Taj Mahal is increadible!

  4. India is definitely a country we will visit when we go long time travelling. We even think to spend about three months there. I love the diversity you have in this great country and I’m also really looking forward for the food! I’d love to see the Bоdhі tree 🙂

  5. India is indeed huge. I went backpacking for 3 weeks and I barely scratched the surface. I focused mainly in the north; next time I’ll make sure to visit the southern states.

  7. Agree that there are so many reasons to visit India – from it’s stunning landscapes, to varied and diverse culture, rich cultural heritage, amazing architecture, temples, food – it’s one of the most fascinating and well rounded destinations on the planet. I would love to visit – I’ve heard great things about Goa so it was great to see it featured here on your list.

    The Tаj Mаhаl is obviously one of the iconic attractions to see – stunning photo of the palace at sunset by the way!
