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.

Hemmed in by the Kunlun and Great Himalaya ranges, Ladakh remains a sparsely populated land of stark natural beauty. An independent kingdom for some 900 years, Ladakh developed a unique culture that strongly resembles Tibet. Islam has also left its mark, with Muslims making up about half of the population. Highlights of a trip to Ladakh include an exploration of the Indus River Valley, driving on the world's highest road, and touring ancient Buddhist monasteries perched high in the mountains. Outdoor enthusiasts can gear up for rugged treks and river rafting, while cultural tours inspire with a range of vibrant summer festivals. Picturesque Leh makes a good base for exploring the region. Note that due to extreme weather conditions, some roads remain closed for about half the year. Also, a strong military presence means you may need permits to access certain areas.

A region of five rivers rich in history and diverse in tradition, Punjab offers everything from Indus Valley archaeological sites to modern, French-designed city architecture and sports festivals.

Gujarat travel guide

Busily scurrying between popular Rajasthan and Mumbai, most tourists skip a stop at Gujarat, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi. Still off the well-beaten path, the region retains much of its bucolic charm, best glimpsed by visiting tiny tribal villages where the locals weave, dye, and embroider arguably the finest textiles available in India. Aside from the obvious cultural appeal, a tour of Gujarat ensures plenty of chances to come face-to-face with the unique regional wildlife, which includes many species of migratory birds and the last of the endangered Asiatic lions.
