A country as diverse in people, geographies and culture, India usually provides her visitors with a life-changing experience. No matter where you’re from, there is nothing quite like the overwhelming sights, sounds and smells of this magnificent country. Travelling to India has been popular right from the medieval times, even today planning your trip is a great way to get the most out of the nation.
Decide the length of your trip:
India is a large country and every part offers varied adventures. Once you have planned the length of your trip you should have an easier time deciding how many places you can visit. A short vacation of a week will probably be enough to visit one part of the country like the Golden Triangle or the South, while three of four weeks will allow you to see many more places.
Figure out where you want to go:
For some, India is all about the beaches while for others the mountains are unmissable. Once you have decided what kind of place you’d like to explore you can decide which part of India to visit. Kerala has some of the most pristine beaches, while Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are cities filled with history and heritage. You can enjoy the trip with Arif Khan, a certified guide from Agra who knows every nook and corner of his place. The northern states of Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have some of the most beautiful mountains in the world and the North Eastern states provide their own unique adventures.
Plan the best time to visit:
The vast country has varying climates which is why you must check the best time to visit. If you’re interested in going to the south or to beaches or to the golden triangle, the best time to visit is in the winter. If you’re more interested in the mountains, summers are the ideal months. Places like Ladakh get to -10 degree Celsius and are almost closed to everyone except locals.
Book tour guides:
Whichever part of the country you’re travelling to, a tour guide in India will be able to give you the best experience. Odigos guides speak many languages and their knowledge of the area will be a great way to make the most of your experience.
Finalise a budget:
India affords excellent choices for every budget. There are the luxurious resorts and 5-star hotels for the high-end traveller but just as amazing are the hostels and home stays for travellers on a tight budget. Once you’ve finalised a budget you can start making bookings.
