Holidays to India

From the snowy peaks of the mighty Himalayas to the tropical coast of Kerala, India is as sprawling as it is diverse. Here ancient rituals and heritage buildings mingle amidst Bollywood and a booming economy. From incense to fumes, spices to cremations, prepare to have your senses assaulted in an unforgettable way. Many call this land home and the result is a true cultural melting pot that will surprise and delight at every turn.

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 the capital and explore one of the oldest cities in the world. Marvel at Humayun’s Tomb, built 60 years before the Taj Mahal it's 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. Looking for the remarkable? Head to the city of Varanasi on the river Ganges and watch pilgrims wash away their sins and cremate loved ones. It’s a culture shock 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? Pench – it’s rumoured to be the setting for Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.
