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, magical Uttarakhand, prodigious wildlife of Gir, the under-rated Chitrakoot falls, the frolic of Goa, the colours of Holi festival and add in the mix, the array of cuisine and cultures.

Now pause for 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.

  4. We spent three month in India and I do agree with you that India is an excellent country to explore for adventure seeker. That say, I have to be honest that I was a hard time for us aswell. As much as the people are friendly there were so much culture chock for us. And it was very dirty. But we stayed three month so it was not that bad.
