India

Come for the curry, stay for the celebration!

India’s rich life philosophies and religious traditions make it a destination for true believers, know-it-alls, and skeptics alike. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and Christians, to name but a few, live alongside one other in this all-encompassing place. You'll feel that your eyes can't open wide enough to take in all the beautiful colors, sights, and people. Do not expect to see India in two weeks; indeed, plan to spend months here if you can. Truthfully, this vast and encompassing place demands a lifetime. You will probably first notice the overcrowded and polluted cities, but if you can't see the beauty in this part of humanity, remember that India has deserts to the west, the Himalayas to the north, tropics to the south, islands to the east, and everything and anything in between . . . so start exploring! Visit Darjeeling and drink the tea that kept the British in India so long, and try Rajasthani garam masalas that will change your palate for life. Once you can differentiate a nan, roti, dosa, parantha, puri, and. . . only then will you know that you’ve spent an adequate amount of time in India. If you fall in love with India, you will have to return. Either way, India's the place to meet people and circumstances that will change your life.

  • I liked it, but the country is not at all clean. Saw many places and the most favourite part was shopping at Rajeev Chowk.

  • Highlights of the North India TourIndus Explorer brings to you this interesting Cultural India Tour. The rich cultural heritage of India is known for spirituality, ancient history and unity towards its nation. The prehistoric cultures have evolved but are still very much present in today’s modern India. This vast country holds so many religions – Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Muslims, Christianity and many more. It is truly incredible that a country not only has a presence of so many religions but also has a historic significance of these religions well intact.http://indusexplorers.com/highlights-of-the-north-india-tour/

  • India is a beautiful country which is a world unto itself. There is something to explore for every tourist on our various tours to India. Such a tourist destination as India is hard to find. Every idea, culture, race and religion finds an expression here. This very fact makes it an unbeatable and incomparable destination

  • I have been to Kalimpong, District Darjeeling, West Bengal, on an annual basis for the last 5 years. It is located in the Himalayan Hills, from Bagdogra (Airport) or Siliguri (Trainstation) it takes about 2,5h by car to get there. In Kalimpong the population mainly stems from Nepalese backgrounds, I think the "real" Indians are the minority:) The reason why I go there on a regular basis is cause i visit the My Peace Music Institute, www.mypeacemusic.net, where children from underpriviledged families are provided with a free-of-charge education to become music teachers (presently in violin, viola, cello, guitar, piano). The MPMI is a non-profit organization and entirely funded by donations. It is a big challenge for them to provide all the instruments for the children and to keep them repaired and the local teachers there do a great job. Pay a visit to this lovely music institute and if you can make a contribution, it is a wonderful project.
