Sacred & Religious Sites · Architectural Buildings · Beaches
It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.

Land of Gods
Called the "Land of Gods" thanks to its many temples and notable pilgrimage sites, Uttarakhand appeals to tourists interested in taking a spiritual journey through an awe-inspiring Himalayan landscape. A comprehensive Uttarakhand tour encompasses everything from colonial-era hill stations and thriving cities, to protected wildlife areas and holiday towns with every amenity under the sun. Many come to discover the dramatic mountainous terrain dotted with sacred lakes and rivers--featuring prominently in the great epics "Mahabharata" and "Ramayana--while others take a trip to Uttarakhand for a chance to spot snow leopards and Bengal tigers.

Jammu and Kashmir travel guide

4.2
Sacred & Religious Sites · Bodies of Water · Gardens
India's northernmost state, Jammu and Kashmir boasts many notable temples, yet the region's claim to fame remains its natural splendor. A tour of Jammu and Kashmir takes you across a mountainous landscape at the foothills of the Lesser Himalaya, with abundant skiing and hiking opportunities. Despite its natural appeal and a wealth of cultural attractions, this border area remains off most tourists' itineraries because of enduring tensions between India and Pakistan. The few foreign visitors who make it here usually head to Ladakh, a trekkers' paradise that's also considered one of northern India's safest places.

Rajasthan travel guide

Historic Sites · Sacred & Religious Sites · Castles
Land of Kings
One of the jewels in India's crown, Rajasthan is probably at its most appealing when seen from the berth of an express train. An epic railway journey across India's largest state reveals sleepy villages frozen in time many centuries ago, ancient fortresses and temples with commanding views over the surrounding landscape, and giant cities teeming with life, noise, heat, color, and spice. To see as much as you can during your trip to Rajasthan, explore the famous Golden Triangle, which includes the cities of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra, home of the Taj Mahal. Other notable destinations worthy of a well-rounded Rajasthan itinerary include Bikaner, famed for its sweets, and Udaipur, known for its lakes and romantic backdrops.
