Rest of India

Home to over a billion people, India is a vast country which captivates its visitors thanks to its diversity, friendliness and capacity to provide endless adventure.

The Golden Triangle acts as the gateway to the colourful sights of the wider Rajasthan region and incorporates the grandiose marble palace of the Taj Mahal, the fascinating history of Jaipur and the thriving capital city of Delhi. To the east, the holy site of Varanasi on the sacred Ganges River offers a fascinating glimpse of Indian spirituality. Meanwhile, the tea plantations of Darjeeling and the Himalaya region showcase a different side to northern India, where you can trek in the cool mountain air.

Further south, the lush green forests and backwaters of Kerala are perfect to explore by houseboat, whilst Goa remains the embodiment of alternative culture and the place to party on the staggeringly beautiful and colourful rollercoaster that is India.
