India: Go beyond

Reading Time: 2 minutes

In this Independence Day issue, Indian Link brings you India that is off the usual tourist map, and away from the beaten track.

Beyond guided tours and sanitised hotel rooms. Beyond Taj Mahal and tigers. Beyond naan and butter chicken. Beyond the window of the taxi. Beyond seeing from afar. Beyond comfort zones. Beyond obvious. Beyond boring.

In this Independence Day issue, Indian Link brings you India that is off the usual tourist map, and away from the beaten track. This India that will take you by your hand, that will lead you to its valleys and mountains, caves and underwater treasures, that will feed you full with the stuff the locals like to devour. This India will make you leave the highway behind. This India will help you lose yourself. Or may be, even find yourself.
Go on, dance with the tribals, trek across a frozen river, try your hand at a centuries-old art, spot a red panda, volunteer at a remote school.
There is a whole new India out there. There is a whole new world out there.
All you need to do is go beyond.
These are the various exhilarating and offbeat travel experiences you can try in India:
CYCLING AND BIKING
MOTORCYCLING
ADVENTURE
FORESTS & WILDLIFE
ARTIST VILLAGES
VOLUNTOURISM
FESTIVALS
HERITAGE STAYS
CULINARY TOURS
