The North India geographical contours include the majestic Himalayas and the historic Indo-Gangetic Plain. This part of India has seen the mixing of so many diverse foreign and indigenous cultures that it can safely be called the melting pot of world civilizations. This land was once referred to as the world’s golden bird due to its endless riches and then it inspired envy and became a land plundered by many invaders. It bled and churned but rebuilt itself to become the symbol of cultural tolerance that it is today.
On a North India tour you will get to see reminders of the spectacular reigns of the Mughal, Maurya, Sur, Gupta, Sikh, Maratha and British empires. The textiles, the paintings, the architecture – will all mesmerise you and take you to the times of Indian royalty and grandeur. For the soul searching that you will inevitably do on a visit to India, you can choose to see the famous religious sites like Haridwar, Varanasi, Allahabad, Mathura and Ajmer.
You will love to experience the Char Dham Yatra and see the Sikh Golden Temple and the Buddhist Mahabodhi Temple. How about a visit to some world heritage sites? The jewel in monuments, the Taj Mahal, beckons you along with the Qutub Minar, Khajuraho Temples, the Bhimbetka Caves and the Valley of Flowers. You can experience the amazing wildlife in numerous bird and animal sanctuaries as well.
North India is every tourist’s delight since it offers tantalising glimpses into what shaped this nation’s rich cultural and historical evolution. If you visit Delhi during the time of any local festivities you will be amazed at the scale at which every festival is celebrated in the nation’s capital. People pour out into the streets and the entire landscape becomes dotted with festive lights and decorations. And this happens during all the festivals across various religions in India.
North India tour packages can open a world for you that is deeply traditional and yet modern; spiritual and yet materialistically rich; vibrant and yet peaceful; adventurous and yet languid; rejuvenating and yet filled with activity – because India is a land of contrasts and you can best enjoy it when you visit with an open mind and heart.
