Northern India and the Golden Triangle
Bordered by the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, the highest mountain range in the world, India’s north is a whirlwind of culture and colour, where vast deserts meet wildlife-rich national parks, and the temples and palaces of Jaipur join the chaotic streets of Delhi and Agra to form the legendary Golden Triangle, a place of fascinating history where the magnificent Taj Mahal has stood proudly since the times of the Mughal Empire.
In contrast with the mountainous north, southern India is a lush land of palm trees and emerald-green tea plantations, its golden sandy beaches fringe a watery canal network, while further inland, elephants roam the forests and the scent of sizzling seafood curries fills the air. Laid-back Goa is high up on the must-do list, along with a cruise along the backwaters of Kerala and a visit to Mumbai’s temples and shrines.
