Glimpse of India- eXplore India in this Lifetime

eXplore India in this Lifetime

Don’t get confused by the title of my post (*wink;)
You would need more than a lifetime to explore every corner of vibrant India. There’s so much to see in this single country. Snow-clad mountains, pristine rivers, tea gardens, beaches, a great many historical sculptures, monuments and what not! You say and India displays it. A vivid area of 3.3 million km square with 1.3 crore diverse people following a variety of cultures and religions defines the country called India.

But.
To justify my title, I will say that the whole of India cannot be covered in a lifetime but with proper planning and execution, YOU CAN eXplore India in a lifetime, rather in 2-3 months.

๐ŸŒท Get a map of India and contact a good travel agent.
๐ŸŒทMark India as North, South, East, West and start planning.
๐ŸŒท Shortlist the important places to visit in each quadrant. Plan your travel in a way such that you can spend 10-15 days in each quadrant.
๐ŸŒท Follow the rules of comfortable travelling. Embrace Minimalist travel and pack less.

๐ŸŒท Book your rail/air/bus tickets in advance to save time and money.
๐ŸŒท Don’t forget to take a good camera with you to save beautiful memories.
๐ŸŒท You can do it, stay motivated with good health and immunity.

I know what’s running in your mind! Coming to that point now.

Which places should be visited in India?
There are tens of thousands of places to visit in India. You want to get the flavour of each and every culture/landform/history. I found this interesting blog that will help you plan to travel India in just 50 days๐Ÿ™‚

There’s another post on Top 100 places to visit in India that’s quite useful.

A few days back, our blogger friends completed #XploreBharat blog series where each blogger gave 2-3 India travel posts. I submitted three posts; providing below the links for you to explore.

1) Things to do in Tripura

Gir National Park
Mumbai
Goa

  1. I would also suggest the non famous places for the feel of the country…like dhanaoulti or Araku Valley, etc. I have been to the list of places you mentioned and u fortunately they all are commercialized now and give only half the feel of travel. Exploring by camping and cycling is best way I feel.

    Thanks for the great list though! This helps a newbie a lot!

    1. Thanks for visiting and giving your feedback๐Ÿ™.
      Commercialization has changed the way we look at things. The villages have become the hub for posh people and the activities of the poor attract the rich๐Ÿ˜
      In the same way, the places that were of least importance are now grabbing everybody’s attention. Hope to witness better days in my lifetime.

      1. If that is all, I am also happy in terms of cultural exchange. But I intended the reckless ventures which cause depletion of nature’s beauty and strength (eg: the cause of Himachal floods, Tamil Nadu floods and Kerala floods) when I meant commercialization. Like take ooty for example. It was one of the best hillstations, for it’s cold climate. But now it’s as hot as any other city. That is why my recommendation to go beyond the list of popular sense…. Explorative mind ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
