Introduction

With over 430 different languages spoken by hundreds of distinct ethnic groups, India is home to some of the most geographic and socio-linguistic variety on earth. From Himalayan peaks to Keralan backwaters, Sikh temples and Mughal mosques, India could keep a traveler fascinated for decades. In India you can attend one of the biggest literature festivals in the world at Jaipur, raft the Ganges, chat with Buddhist monks and Hindu sadhus, stay in a monastery or swim in one of the world's sexiest rooftop pools.
