About India

  • India is set apart from the rest of Asia by the Himalayas, the highest, youngest and still evolving mountain chain on the planet.
  • The subcontinent as it is rightly called, touches three large water bodies and is immediately recognizable on any world map.
  • An abundance of mountain ranges and national parks provide ample opportunity for eco-tourism and trekking, and its sheer size promises something for everyone.

In a country as diverse and complex as India, it is not surprising to find that people here reflect the rich glories of the past, the culture, traditions and values relative to geographic locations and the numerous distinctive manners, habits and food that will always remain truly Indian. The Colorful mosaic of Indian festivals and fairs – as diverse as the land, is an eternal expression of the spirit of celebration. Food in India is wide ranging in variety, taste and flavor. India is a land of a variety of linguistic communities, each of which shares a common language and culture. India’s culture is marked by a high degree of syncretism and cultural pluralism.
