India has something to offer to every traveler… be it mountain trekking, spiritual enrichment, family vacations, safaris, camel treks, adventure thrills, holistic treatments, shopping extravaganzas, or sight-seeing tours.
A dream destination that is on the bucket list of many travelers, India caters to everyone, from luxury guests to budget backpackers, from spiritual seekers to thrill seekers of the great outdoors.
One thing is for certain, a trip to India will be life changing! The diversity in Indian culture, language, food, climate, and religion is truly fascinating and at times can be overwhelming for first time visitors. Not surprising for a country with deep-rooted traditions, lifestyle and culture, very different from what you might expect to see in, say, North America, Europe or Australia.
Many travelers experience varying levels of culture shock, though this can somewhat be remedied by understanding what to expect and how to navigate the culture before traveling there.
Here are our top six reasons to visit India:
1. Connect with its ancient history
An architecturally diverse country filled with forts, palaces, temples, shrines, monuments and ancient ruins, India is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, and has witnessed many empires, wars, invasions and religions dating back to 5000 BC.
2. Visit a Yoga Ashram
There are many yoga teachers, schools and ashrams in India to choose from. Being in an ashram or monastery is an incredible experience, that changes one’s life forever.
3. Trek in the Himalayas
Ancient traditions, ethereal beauty and surreal spiritualism are ingrained into the great lands of the Himalaya. Since ancient times, the Himalayas have attracted countless pilgrims and mountaineers to scale their heavenly glaciated heights.
You will meet some of the most fascinating people on earth here, and marvel with astonishment at their stories of spirituality and survival.
4. Find treasures
In India, a trip to the market (or bazaar) is much more than a shopping expedition: it’s a full-on cultural immersion. Go with the unhurried zeal of an explorer, enjoy the process of finding a treasure and get into the spirit of the place by haggling over the price.
5. Enrich your soul
In India, religion and spirituality are intricately intertwined with everyday life. A trip to India can be very inspiring and refreshing for the soul. Many people also come to India to find spirituality, practice yoga, or live in a Buddhist monastery.
6. Venture into the great jungles
Home to some of the most unique flora and fauna species, India boasts a rich biodiversity, as the geography of the country is dotted with thick forests, serving as the habitat of a huge number of wildlife species.
From The Great Himalayan National Park in the north to Bandipur National Park in the south, rare and exotic species such as asiatic lions, bengal tigers, snow leopards and rhinoceros sightings will make your trip utterly exhilarating.
No matter where you travel to in India, your life will never be the same once you have visited this ancient exotic land.
