India is an incredibly rewarding destination. A land of extraordinary contrasts, from bustling urban Delhi to tranquil Keralan backwaters, and from the deserts of Rajasthan to snow-capped Himalayan peaks, India really does offer something for every visitor.
Northwest India makes a good starting point with opulent palaces in Rajasthan, cool colonial hill stations in Himachal Pradesh and some spectacular trekking in Garhwal. In the far north there are breathtaking summer treks in Zanskar and Ladakh, and in Northeast India the mountains of Buddhist Sikkim offer beautiful spring and autumn walking. For the truly adventurous there is the little known mountain region of tribal Nagaland to explore, whilst for those wanting a more relaxing experience, the laid back charms of Southern India won't disappoint.
So, whether you want to go trekking in India, tour the cultural highlights or see impressive wildlife, Mountain Kingdoms can create your dream holiday in India.
