Delhi

Delhi - The Eternal City, reinvented nine times, is India's First City. The vibrant capital of an emerging superpower nation, it is a cultural hub that excites and entices the travelers with its exotic bazaars. Its stunning legacy of ancient monuments and antique shrines, step wells and riverside vignettes, museums, recreational spaces and culinary traditions set your tastebuds clamoring for more. The people, over 1.5 million of them, have wrapped their city around themselves and learnt the wise lessons of enterprise and commerce, hospitality and equanimity. An odyssey of discovery reveals the cities within the city, uncovered gently as you peel away the gauzy veils that clothe its glory and tumultuous antiquity all marked by the power play of kings and sultans, emperors and warlords. This world-renowned gateway capital - a tourist hub in its own right, with its monuments and atmospheric ruins, colonial mansions and tree-lined avenues, public gardens and posh contemporary comforts, throws open the casements to the wonder that is India.

The Himalayas

At least 30 of the world's highest peaks, amongst them Mt Everest, are located in this stunning mountain range. The Himalayas continue to seduce visitors with a veritable treasure trove of holiday experiences with their high altitude deserts, glaciers, gushing rivers and waterfalls, orchid-filled forests, ancient mountain dwellings, remote shrines and monasteries and wildlife parks rich in flora and fauna.

Destination India

Map of India

INDIA HAS ALWAYS INTRIGUED FOREIGNERS. Back in the fourth century B.C., Alexander the Great's men were amazed by elephants. Later, William Shakespeare (1564-1616), who never visited India, alluded to its exotic trading wealth in his play A Midsummer Night's Dream. More recently, in 1897, the well-travelled writer Mark Twain called India "... the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the globe combined." Today, India continues to fascinate with equal force, all the more so because much of life here is lived in public.
