Being a country with the largest population, most diverse natural and cultural wonders, and the one of the oldest civilizations in the world, India is rich and vibrant in heritage and culture. At every 500km in India, you find distinct landscape, architecture, language, cuisine and culture.
As thrilling and fulfilling as it can be, any first-timer in India should expect exposure to a blend of different noises, crowds, spicy food, and helpful people with a big welcoming smile on their faces.
Which parts of India you should visit on your first trip depends on how much time you have. If you’ve come to India for a week or 10 days, the fabled Golden Triangle Tour would be perfect for you. Connecting the heritage cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, this tour will take you on a journey into the rich Indian culture and its proud history.
Stand in awe of the Mughal architectures in Delhi, take a trip down the royal lanes of Jaipur and witness the majestic forts and palaces of the Rajputs. Get mesmerized by the spellbinding beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra.
India is a place of saints and sadhus (preachers). Let the spiritual winds touch you at the immortal city of Varanasi where Hindus come to attain moksha (purgation) and cleanse their souls in the holy Ganges river.
Witness the dramatic visuals of Sandha Aarti (evening prayers) at the riverbanks of Varanasi and Haridwar, two of the holiest sites for Hindus. Once you have experienced the religious extravagance, lighten your heart with some yoga sessions and breathing exercises in Rishikesh, the international yoga capital, located only 23 km from Haridwar.
Go to any part of India and it won’t fail to amaze you. India is so vast and diverse that it’s impossible to cover each corner of the country on your first trip.
