India has been rightly summed up by expert travel writers as the hub of all types of tourism be it beach or wildlife destinations, culture or heritage holidays, spiritual or hill retreats. Our tour packages to India cover a multitude of charming hill stations such as Chail, Dalhousie, Gangtok, Gulmarg, Idukki, Kasauli, Kodaikanal, Mount Abu, Mussoorie, Nainital, Ooty, Kashmir, Uttaranchal, Ladakh, Dharamsala, Manali, Shimla, Srinagar, Darjeeling and Munnar etc. True to its religious fervour, India also has several spiritual and religious holiday destinations to choose from, the most famous ones being Amarnath, Chardham, Allahabad, Bhubaneswar, Gangotri, Varanasi, Haridwar, Puri and Vrindavan. Presently, themed-holidays comprising beach holidays to desert holidays, adventure holidays to spiritual holidays, summer holidays to winter holidays etc, are catching up. Thus, all tour packages to India are based on these themes. Out of all these, it is the beaches that have won the interests of vacationers worldwide. The coastal regions and islands of India offer multiple beach holiday destinations but the ones in the states of Goa, Kerala, Maharashtra and Orissa are the most popular.
Jungle and wildlife safaris are other popular activities among domestic and international travellers. Over 441 wildlife sanctuaries and 80 national parks spread out along the length and breadth of the county offering an unforgettable experience in the wilds along with an exciting encounter with predators and winged creatures.
Culturally, India is intoxicating and spell-binding dating over 5000 years back. No other country can match up to India’s diversity culture-wise: North to south, east to west, each area is marked by their own distinctive cultural identity. Nevertheless, it is the Taj Mahal which has and still arouses the interest of visitors from across the world. This enduring symbol of love is a splendid work of architecture figuring prominently among one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Several other wonderful historical monuments also grace this wondrous land such as Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Char Minar etc.
