Now that you are going to live your dream of
touring India, there are chances that you might be bombarded with two
schools of thought simultaneously. One says that you just have to let it
happen and go with the flow. The other one is equally extreme as this one
tells you to plan everything up to the last detail. We'd say that you should
go for a moderate approach wherein some portion of your tour will be
premeditated and you'll be prepared and flexible at the same time for the
unexpected as well. Therefore, we'd say that there should be a list of
things to do which you'll definitely want to do. At the same time, you
should also keep a tentative list which will come in handy when you have
time for some extra excitement.
¤ Wildlife Safari
wildlife safaris in India are an exciting way of getting close to the nature
as well as the wild animals. These safaris may include the elephant safari
which takes you to the deep forests where you wouldn't have reached
otherwise and you manage to see some exotic wild animals from a comfortable
height. The other popular safari options include jeep and boat safaris.
¤ Trekking in Ladakh
Also known as the little Tibet, the cold desert of Ladakh offers you some
of the most picturesque trekking trails which include the Markha Valley,
Nubra Valley and Tso Moriri Lake trek. Trekking throws open to you many
areas which would otherwise have remained inaccessible for you.
¤ Rafting in Ganges
While you were even otherwise ready for the excitement provided by rafting,
the landscapes come free with it. Some of the river runs are easy and suit
the beginners, yet there are several runs in the river Ganges which
challenge and thrill even the most seasoned rafters.
¤ Auli Skiing
Located in the Chamoli district of Uttaranchal and close to China and
Nepal, Auli is said to be the ski capital of India. You'll get some clean
stretches of about 10 to 20 km for skiing here. The woods on the slopes help
reduce the wind velocity which makes the conditions for skiing even better
for you'll enjoy the wind brushing against your cheeks while you ski down
¤ Valley of Flowers
The Valley of Flowers is situated in the upper expansions of Bhyundar Ganga
at Uttaranchal. It was in 1931 when a British mountaineer Frank S Smith
discovered it during his expedition to Mount Kamet and it was appropriately
named as Valley of Flowers by him. There is only one track in the valley
through which you can see the vast landscape of flowers in the valley. If
you want to get closer, you'll have to rub your way through the foliage.
¤ Shopping in Delhi
has always been among the most significant trading centres of India and here
you can always find localities where the shops are tidily put together in a
very neat order so that you may find things that you want easily. Then there
are places where the shops may not follow a particular order, yet they look
attractive all the same. Though it seems somewhat exaggerated, it can be
safely said that shops of Delhi offer almost everything that can be sold and
purchased under the sun.
¤ Camel Safari in Rajasthan
Camel Safari is one of the best ways of getting intimate with the desert as
it takes you closer into the real culture and tradition of the state. The
Thar desert is spread across the western part of Rajasthan in India and it
has in its fold some of the most challenging sand zones of the world which
will definitely overwhelm you no matter what. You can also undertake a tour
in the Shekhawati region where you'll get to visit the towns such as
Ramgarh, Dundlod, Nawalgarh, Mandawa and Churu.
¤ Himalayan Jeep Safari
A jeep is the perfect conveyance for you in the Himalayas as it can easily
withstand these rugged and exciting terrains in the mighty heights of the
Himalayas. The jeeps take you right into the heart of the Himalayas while
going through the most difficult of terrains, some of the highest of passes,
close to many glaciers and some exceedingly beautiful high altitude lakes.
Through jeeps you can explore areas which you would otherwise reach only
after days of trekking.
