India is a beautiful and diverse country and a very popular destination for the adventurers amongst us. Visiting this country will certainly be an inspiring journey that will leave a long-lasting impression.
The people are some of the kindest and most hospitable people, and you will certainly be touched by their warmth. However, be prepared to encounter the extremes, heart-breaking poverty and extravagant luxuries.
The people are very humble and respectful; however, they are not used to seeing a lot of bare skin (women’s shoulders, or more) therefore, you may want to cover up more than you might be used to.
Whatever you do in India, try squeezing in a trip to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal in Agra is surely something you have seen popping up on your social media feed. However, pictures do not even come close to doing it justice. The marble mausoleum is breathtakingly beautiful and well worth the bumpy bus ride there.
In India, religion and spirituality are part of everyday life. It is home to all of the major religions of the world and it is an enriching and intimate experience to observe the locals in their daily rituals. Many people come to India to find spirituality, practise yoga or meditation in an Ashram. This can be a wonderful change after spending some time in the chaotic cities of the North.
Whether you are attempting to navigate the madness of the streets of Delhi, meditating at the foot of the snow-capped Himalayas in the North, spotting Elephants and Tigers in the wild, or relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Goa in the South, travelling around India will be an unforgettable adventure!
Indian weather can be divided into three seasons: Winter (November – February), Summer (March – May) and Monsoon (June – October). The climate varies drastically from a temperate climate in the North (with snow-capped mountains), to a tropical monsoon climate in the South. If you are thinking of travelling to Delhi, then the best time to visit will be between October and March, when the nights and days are cooler. May, June and July are very hot with temperatures over 45 degrees Celsius. The Southern coastal cities experience heavier rainfall during Monsoon season so either avoid, or, go looking for these tropical downpours between June and October.
The food alone is reason enough to travel to India. The Indian cuisine is just as diverse as the country, and incredibly cheap. A three-course meal for two will cost you no more than 700 rupees (£7,50).
Local Beer will cost you no more than 120 Rupees (£1,30) and imported Beer slightly more at 190 Rs (£2,10) per bottle. A cappuccino is 100 Rs (£1,10) and water as little as 42 RS (£0,45) per litre bottle.
It is important to note that you should always drink bottled water and make sure the bottle you are buying is fully sealed.
Although it might be difficult to escape getting the ‘Delhi Belly’ at least once while you’re in India, trying to avoid it as much as you can by never drinking tap water (remember, ice cubes in your drink are often made with tap water!) can save you many bedridden days and trips to the bathroom.
Cows are considered holy animals in India; therefore, you will not find beef on any menu. In fact, vegetarians will often have more choice than carnivores in the Indian cuisine.
