Places to go in India

From the snowy peaks of the mighty Himalayas to the tropical backwaters of Kerala, India is as sprawling as it is diverse. From deserts to mountains and beaches to the jungle, the dramatic terrain is peppered with enough points of interest, including holy temples and ancient forts, to keep any keen culture vulture busy. Head to Delhi and explore one of the oldest cities in the world. Marvel at Humayun’s Tomb - built 60 years before Agra's Taj Mahal and said to have inspired it.

If romance is on your mind, a trip to Udaipur – built around the beautiful Lake Pichola – offers it up by the boatload. For the best brew of your life head to Darjeeling and sip a cup of the good stuff in this peaceful hill town. To experience something remarkable head to the city of Varanasi on the river Ganges and watch pilgrims wash away their sins. It’s a fascinating cultural experience that will stay with you forever.

Nature lovers will be in their element here. Go tiger spotting in many of the country’s National Parks. Our top pick is Pench which is rumoured to be the setting for Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book! Got a few ideas about where you’d like to go or need some help?
