Dizzying. Spiritual. Inimitable. India’s people and places are unforgettable.
The fabric of Indian life is woven with colour, history, and religion. With myriad cultures and customs across a billion people, there’s no shortage of experiences to be had. From rich wildlife and sacrosanct sites, to swarming spice bazaars and crumbling fortresses, plunging ravines and misty mountains, you cannot simply skim the surface of India. Instead, plunge right in.
