Things to do in India

No visit to India would be complete without first going to the Taj Mahal. This beautiful, white domed mausoleum is known as the "crown of palaces" and took 21 years to complete. You can't help but be awestruck when entering this gorgeous edifice. Delhi is nearby the Taj Mahal and has many historic ruins that travelers will want to checkout.

When planning your India travel during the winter months, make a trip to Gangtok when the Khecheopalri Lake is frozen. It is absolutely stunning, with the trees blanketed in thick white snow and the lights shining off the lake. The lake and surrounding land is considered sacred and wish-fulfilling.

Varanasi is another must-see location. It is considered the holy city and people come there to receive water from the Ganges River. Bombay is another city that has a lot of exciting attractions that you won’t want to miss. It is a modern city that is known for business and many business travelers land up there.
