Festivals India

Tour with full India experience

This trip is a string of highlights, such as a visit to the Taj Mahal and the imposing Mehrengarh Fort in Jodhpur. A walk through the narrow streets of the holy city of Varanasi is an experience to remember. Add to that attending a festival and you have a perfect India travel experience. And we haven't even talked about the beautiful city of Udaipur, where the journey ends...

India,the land of mysticism and yoga, ayurveda and spirituality... And also certainly the land of the festivals. Every month, festivals are celebrated somewhere in India, often with a religious background. Indians profess their faith with conviction and important matters of life and decisions are often determined by the religious calendar. Festivals play an important role and are celebrated with great devotion and fun. Processions featuring richly decorated elephants, brightly colored Holi powder shooting through the air, spectacular fireworks and millions of pilgrims coming together during the Kumbh Mela celebrated once every 12 years are just a few of the expected experiences at a festival in India.
