From soaring snow mountains of the far north to the steamy sun-washed beaches, India’s dramtic terrain is breathtaking. Along with abundant natural beauties, exquisitely carved temples rise majestically out of pancakeflat deserts and old fotresses peer over plunging ravines. Aficionados of the great outdoors can scout for big jungle cats on wildlife safaris, paddle in the shimmering waters of one of many beautiful beaches, take blood pumping treks high in the Himalaya, or simply inhale pine-scented air on meditative forest walks.
