If you are interested in visiting India, it can be a good idea to look into some of the local attractions and features that you can enjoy while you visit. India features a rich and beautiful landscape with a wide variety of gorgeous biomes that you can visit, all while touring the roads and countryside. In addition to the natural delights that can be found, India features beautiful architecture and infrastructures that represent the best of the cities in the country. The things that you can see when you visit are infinite, and the experience begins with a simple flight.
One of the most immediate destinations that you have no doubt already prepared an itinerary for is the Taj Mahal. This beautiful building is a stunning example of the local architecture. It was originally built in the seventeenth century, and the monument, made from white marble, is visited by thousands of tourists from the entire world over. While visiting the Taj Mahal can be an exciting experience any time of the day, it can be a good idea to consider visiting during the night, specifically on a starry night, or one where the full moon fills the sky. While it may cost more for a night visit, the experience is well worth the premium.
When planning out your India holidays, you will want to know about all the hotspots, such as the local Punjabi dhabas. These are special restaurants that you can always visit, especially when you are on the road. While you are driving down along the highway, you will see one of these along the roadsides. They typically operate twenty four hours a day, all days of the week, and can be visited for a wide variety of Punjabi dishes. Gulshan Dhaba is a particularly famous one, and visiting at just about any time can be a good experience.
In addition to the culinary delights that can be visited all year round, it is always a good idea to take a tour of Old Delhi. This is where you will have one of the most intimate experiences of the country that you can find, and no India holidays are complete without visiting the narrow streets. You will immediately get a feel for how chaotic life is in the country, but the liveliness of the place will make you fall in love. There are numerous food locations that can be visited while you are exploring the streets, and just about every turn will lead you to something that is worth seeing.
If you are an avid adventurer and a biking enthusiast, you will love taking a memorable bike trip to Ladakh. This type of trip is a particular favorite of those who plan on taking the personal route through the country. To begin the trip, you will begin at Manali and make your way into the Rohtang Pass. From there, you will continue through to the gorgeous Lahaul and Spiti Valley, and then ride through numerous mountain passes before finally arriving at Ladakh. When you reach Ladakh, you will have another opportunity to enjoy a biking trip to Khardung La Pass. This is the highest motorable pass available in the entire world, and this trip should be done between June and December.
While you visit the country, do not forget to stop at some of the local areas and enjoy the rural Olympics. While India is well known for its involvement in the Olympics, there is more to the athletic nature of the country than what can be seen every few years. The country hosts some of the most rustic and exciting sporting matches every year. Kila Raipur, an otherwise small and ordinary village located in Ludhiana, springs to life between the months of February and March every year. They act as the host to one of the largest sporting festivals and events that occurs in the country. Hundreds, if not thousands of people regularly come to the fair, and while some arrive to watch, others stop by, determined to participate. All of the games are based around traditional activities throughout Indian history, with emphasis set on the rustic nature of the sports. You will have the chance to watch men mud wrestle and pull tractors and enjoy anywhere between forty and fifty other events, all spread out over three days. These games are not just limited to the local participants and their teams. You will be able to see competitors from all over the world who are excited to do their best at this festival.
