Explore the exotic destinations of North India

“India is an ephemeral reality that unravels another mystery just when you believe that now you know what the country is”, Tiny raised her eyebrows while reading out these lines from a travel article to her friends. She, along with her group of friends, had decided to visit some exotic locales of Northern India and were these days reading everything available about the country. “So does that bring our search for the right destinations to a full circle”, Lee stated while munching fish and chips. “Cant’  say”, stated Tiny giving an equally confused look.

“Hey! I have a solution to all your problems”, said Mike, who had just joined the conversation and was already widely travelled. “Why don’t you all just get in touch with Erco Travels and get a swift answer to all your queries. I have travelled once with them and found them to be extremely meticulous and well-informed”, he stated and on getting everyone’s concurrence shot an email to the Erco Travel agent.

“So here is the answer said a beaming Mike after half-an-hour” saying this he circulated the reply received. The email mentioned how India is such an incredible country, where one can get extensive and out-of the world experience of a life time. From celebrating the royal past to enjoying the sheer natural beauty, or exploring one’s inner self, few destinations in the world are as fascinating as India. It encompasses an astonishing range of tourist attractions, which are simply irresistible. Everything from the architecture to the incredible hospitality is superb in this land stated the email. It also listed some good North India destinations as given underneath:

Jaipur–The pink city is fairly well planned and offers tourists the joy of participating in the colorful fairs and festivals, along with the opportunity to enjoy the luxury of visiting stunning Rajasthan Forts & Palaces Tour. What’s more? The city has a lot to satisfy the taste buds of all and sundry. So one can feast on the delicious culinary delights, treat eyes to the reflection of a palace in the charming lake, watch the enchanting Wildlife Tours or browse city's markets filled with amazing handicrafts. In fact Jaipur is very tourist friendly and some of the must see attractions are the City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Amber Fort and Wildlife and  National Park Tour.

•Khajuraho- Well-known across the globe for its erotic sculptures carved artistically on the walls of ancient temples, Khajuraho is a World Heritage Site and a must see for every tourist. Located in the state of Madhya Pradesh, the area is an architectural marvel in the true sense of the word. If visiting in the month of February and March, one can also enjoy the classic Dance Festival celebrated every year.

•Gulmarg –Another sparkling jewel in the crown of India’s heaven on earth-the Kashmir and Heven in Himalayas. Gulmarg is a hill station that oozes natural beauty in abundance. Trekking and golfing are the exciting adventure sports that the tourists can indulge in this small hill station.

Agra- a historic city is renowned for the seventh wonder of the world-the Taj Mahal, which is a symbol of love and one of the finest monuments of the Mughal Empire. Other attractions of the Taj Mahal Tour  are Agra Fort, Sikandra and Fatehpur Sikri.

After mentioning these most popular tourist sites, the email from the agent further stated that India’s Northern region tour offers many wonderful and exotic locales that it is difficult to mention it all in an email. So it will really help if Tiny’s group will first decide what will be the focus of this trip to India-adventure, historic travel, soul-searching experience etc. and accordingly the agency will give them a list of probable destinations.

Reading the longish email, there was smile on every face present in the room. “So what are we waiting for”, mentioned Tiny and once again they all sat down to identify the focus of this trip and the deliberations continued.

If you are also planning any such tour just write to us and let the take care of it all.
