Situated in South Asia, India is a country with deep cultural roots and a rich heritage. A great country for budget travel, India is popular for its forts and palaces. You can visit India to find yourself through yoga, to lose yourself in the mountains of Himalayas, to be mesmerised by the ancient temples. The crowded bazaars, blaring traffic, filmy music, the colour, the noise and not to forget, the chaos will leave you all amazed and overwhelmed.
The country can be broadly categorised into Northern India, Southern India, North-Eastern India, Western India and Eastern India. Visit the overwhelmingly beautiful Himalayan ranges in northern India, the culturally rich northern plains around the rivers Ganga and Yamuna, Kerala backwaters in the southern part of India, the famous tea gardens in north-eastern India, the royal palaces in Western India and the ancient cities in the eastern region.
December - March is the best time to visit India
The best time to visit India is between October and March. It majorly covers the winters and beginning of summers. The summer months of April to June are typically sweltering and should be avoided. After the scorching heat of summers, monsoons transform the terrain into a captivating place, but the levels of humidity and precipitation may not be something one was looking for. Whereas during winters, the temperature in most regions falls in the night time but is pleasantly average or quite high during the day.
Great diversity in landscape and culture. Blessed with natural beauty. Ancient heritage and architecture. Yoga and meditation.

Hotels are easily available in all tourist destinations in India. However, the budget hotel options may be unclean. There are great luxury stay options in India like heritage stays in palaces and beautiful yoga retreats. For hostel stay in India, it's advisable to stick to popular chains like Youth Hostel Association of India (YHAI) or Zostels. Dharamshalas, which are budget stays provided by religious entities, are also a great option for affordable accommodation, but are mostly afforded to pilgrims. AirBnbs are catching on in tourist destinations, and you may find some lovely, albeit slightly expensive, properties to stay in.
