India’s name is derived from the Indus River, whose valleys were first settled 5,000 years ago. Successive waves of migration and invasion have contributed to the fantastic culture that continues to amaze first-time visitors, and to exert a pull long after they have gone home. Reminders of India’s multi-faceted cultural heritage are everywhere; the glorious past is still alive in the present. You see it in the distinctive regional costumes and cuisine, and in the monuments, forts, palaces, temples, mosques, and stupas scattered all over the sub-continent. India is a vibrant, crowded country pulsating with energy and bursting with life. Whether trekking in Ladakh, strolling amid Himalayan hills and valleys strewn with wildflowers in Sikkim, traversing the deserts of Rajasthan, or relaxing on long sandy beaches in Kerala with nary a soul in sight, India will not fail to amaze you.
India is all this and much more. Once you go, you’ll realize that there are so many more adventures to pursue. India simply cannot be explained, it must be experienced. Be forewarned: India is addictive!
