It's hard to imagine a more exciting, exhilarating, romantic or exotic destination than India. A land of matchless superlatives, the largest country in the subcontinent shares its borders with Pakistan, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Myanmar. A vast expanse of colour and tradition, India practically groans under the weight of its historical and cultural pedigree. The seventh largest country in the world and the largest democracy on earth, its landscapes are alive with a seemingly impossible richness of people, religions, traditions and scenery. For the inquisitive and the enquiring, it is a land simply not to be missed.
As one traveller put it: 'It's the only place on the planet where everything that has ever happened in the history of the world is happening every minute of every day right under your nose!' A slight exaggeration possibly…but not by much!
The beautiful landscapes of Kashmir are a particular favourite of ours, having operated there for over ten years, but from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the shores of the Indian Ocean, India is a land of remarkable diversity. And with a cultural history that spans over 4,500 years, its art, architecture and literature is amongst the oldest and finest anywhere in the world.

While in Delhi, have dinner at 'Veda' - the food is great and the vibe chic.
Visit the College Street Coffee House, the historical hub of intellectual debate in Calcutta.
Staying in Srinagar, take a shikara through the old town, along the Bund. It's not on the normal tourist circuit and is fascinating.
