india travelIndia may be on the backpacker trail but it is not exclusive to gap year students and young travellers. In fact, India is a fantastic destination for the mature traveller who has plenty of time to explore this exotic and exciting country at a less frenetic pace!

From snow-dusted mountains and sun-drenched beaches, tranquil temples and lively festivals, to lantern-lit villages and high-tech cities, India has something to delight every traveller.

Why not give the grandchildren something to be envious about. It’s never too late to do a little globetrotting!

Where to Go

India is so vast and varied that there is surely somewhere for everyone to fall in love with, whether it’s the fast and furious pace of Delhi, the vibrant colours of Mumbai, the relaxed pace of Kerala or the history of the beautiful ‘pink city’, Jaipur. India is well connected to the rest of the world via airports throughout the country with running daily from many international locations.

If pilgrimage and spirituality is your cup of chai, then places like Varanasi, Rishikesh, Amritsar, and Kushinagar are wonderful places to indulge in some yoga or perhaps a meditation retreat, while Rishikesh, Dehradun, Shimla, and Ooty are the best places to visit for Ayurveda and herbal treatments that will ease your cares away…if you have any!

Rajasthan is one of the most popular destinations with its burning deserts, tiger reserves, jungles, lakes, opulent palaces and forts. Jaipur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur are the most visited places in the area, showing off their stunning architecture. s in the desert and stays in local villages for a first hand glimpse of the rural Rajasthani lifestyle – these trips are aimed at the slightly more thrill seeking traveller.

The bustling mayhem of cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata are a sensory wonderland, where people, cars, rickshaws, bicycles, Bollywood colours, cows and cuisines collide with each other to form one big bamboozling melting pot. These cities, a little crazy though they may be, also provide amazing cultural experiences from theatre, arts and music to festivals and events. It’s always worth trying to catch one of the many Indian festivals that are held throughout the year.

Re india and china

by H4RRY

Also travelling in nepal and india this year. nepal is ok for travellers,just be careful in major indian cities, there are people who will take great pleasure in ripping you off. buy tickets from stations etc even if someone tells you it's been bombed or large queues the tourist counters are always nearly empty. don't give money to beggers and don't be bothered by them. try to visiy goa, it's a fantastic place. buy a lonely planet guide and happy travels.

India's beautiful architecture as symbols of love shows it has a heart of gold  —
The train was just one leg on an enthralling trip touring the Golden Triangle, India's most popular northern cities of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. I confess I have had a long, bordering on obsessive attraction to the Rajasthan region.
