Is India a good travel destination?


Undoubtedly, India has the largest diversity of religions, languages and races. India is a unique travel destination that's growing in popularity all the time. Many people come to India to learn yoga, meditate, or spend time at an ashram. Indian food can take a bit of getting used to for some people, but it really is worth it.

India has numerous mountains ranges next to jungles,
coastlines, and deserts. There is a great sense of encompassing travel experience that one gets when exploring various parts of India. From the beautiful mountains in the Himalayas to the amazing temples and the beaches down south, from the most diverse religious and cultural places across the four corners of the country, from the multiple Indian languages spoken in different parts one can tell the diverse nature of India. India has it all.

There are practically every kind of geographically diverse landscapes in Leh and Ladakh. If one is interested in culture and meeting new people of ethnic and traditional origin then a trip to Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and some remote villages in Haryana, Punjab and some parts of South India would do the trick. Archaeology fans might really enjoy The Ruins of Hampi, various parts of Gujarat and some across India-Pakistan border where Indus valley civilization ruins exist and of course Madhya
Pradesh for it's beautiful terrain and charismatic caves depicting ancient lore of Kama Sutra and love in Khajurao. The North East has its own charm with various landscapic mountains, monasteries, Buddhist culture and an eye awakening spirituality towards nature and this planet. Then there are the beautiful islands of Lakshwadeep and Andaman and Nicobar which are a place in itself. Secluded from most parts of India they lie within the terrains of water a world within their own these places must not be missed. Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore are the metropolis one might want to go to, best serve as connectivity to various different parts and mostly flights to any place in the world or other part of the country are available here. And last but not least, there's no place like Goa! Goa boasts of beautiful beaches and churches.

In all, India is a land of diverse cultures and backgrounds and one must surely visit it in a lifetime. Tourists are always welcome. Above all ‘Athithi devo bhava’.
