India Travel Guide

When VS Naipaul wrote, "there is little subtlety to India," it was an understatement. The western currencies of apathy, minimalism and restraint carry little weight here. Instead, colours are richer, faith and festivals rushed into at fuller-tilt and the cinema storylines are far more outlandish. It’s a place brimming with extremes, from the cool hills around Darjeeling to the hot dunes of the Thar desert. Relax on a tropical beach in Kerala or travel to the Himalayas in Himachal Pradesh for some trekking. Use Footprint's India travel guide to discover the wonders of this land of diversity.
