A unique subcontinent with multitudes to offer, India is a scenic place to travel.
Many travellers make the mistake of just doing the Golden triangle and think they've seen India.
To really see India you need to get out of the tourist trap that is the triangle and really explore this incredible country.
The Golden triangle consists of Jaipur- the pink city, Agar- location of the Taj Mahal and Delhi- the capital city. Although the Taj Mahal is truly magnificent, it can be done as a side trip. India is such a huge country made up of several different states with each area providing a unique scenic experience.
You should consider what is more your style and where your interests lie.
Are you more attracted to seeing wildlife such as Tigers and Snow Leopards. Would you like to witness/take part in festivals and traditions? Would you prefer to experience a unique village livelihood with family hospitality by staying in homestays or is experiencing the luxury side of India more your style?
