India is a soulful, soul-stirring country, overflowing with cultural treasures, spiritual wonder, and natural beauty. A wondrous land of crowded megacities, Himalayan monasteries, and ancient fishing villages, India sweeps you up in a confounding and beautiful tide of humanity. Float with us along Kerala's famous backwaters, take a Tiger Safari in Ranthambhore, and find peace at the holy Ganges. And whether we drink chai tea from the source in Munnar, or savor Marwari cuisine in Jaipur, the land of spices and its remarkable people will linger long in our memories
