Impossible to pin down, India awakens the senses like no other place on earth.
India effervesces with life. Expect to be dazzled, overwhelmed, impressed, inspired and baffled - sometimes all at once. Yes, culture shock is inevitable, but the rewards are superlative. Teeming cities are scattered with historic relics yet buzz with modernity, monuments loom from misty riverbanks and you feel the tropics pulling you south at the same time as icy peaks tempt you northwards. Really, words can't even begin to summarise this sub-continent of over one billion people, so our advice is just go and experience it. See, hear, taste, smell for yourself that India, in all her beguiling, bewildering complexity, defies description.
