India - "Incredible India"
India is a country with enormous ethnic, linguistic, cultural diversity and with
striking contrast. The Tibetan-influenced region of Ladakh, the mountainous region
of Himanchal Pardesh, the Garhwal Hills of Uttar Pardesh and Darjeeling and Sikkim
in the East. To the south is the gigantic plains stretching from Punjab in the northwest,
past Delhi and popular tourist sites such as the Taj Mahal of Agra, Khajurao, Varansi
and the holy Ganges to the north end of the Bay of Bengal.
In the central Indian States of Orissa and Madhya Pradesh tribal village life has
resulted in a variety of artistically executed handicrafts. Similarly, India's mountains
provide heli skiing, river running, mountaineering and trekking. Its beaches provide
lazy sun-bathing as well as wind surfing and snorkeling, and its jungles provide
shooting wildlife -with a cam. India is what one makes of it. There are temples
in profusion in enough styles and denominations to confuse anybody. The forts, abandoned
cities, ruins, battlefields and monuments all have their histories and tales to
tell. There are enough beaches to satisfy the most avid sun worshipper and trekking
routes of the Himalayas can provide an adventure to the most seasoned trekker. For
white water lovers, the upper Ganges and the Teesta River in Sikkim provides exhilarating
white water experience.
