India is endowed with all forms of landscapes. Blessed with the Himalayas, the Gangetic plains, the Mangroves, the Islands, the plateaus and the backwaters, India is undoubtedly one of the finest and must-visit tourist destinations.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that India is a travelers' “dream destination”, for one can enjoy the varied beauties of nature here.

The Mountains

The mighty Himalayan Mountains guard India in the north. Adorned with some of the highest points on earth, the Himalayan ranges are India’s pride. The snow clad peaks that are kissed by the clouds, add to the beauty of India.

The Plateaus

The Indian landscape has its share of plateau region too. Be it the Ladakh in the north or the Deccan plateau in the south, these regions are bestowed with nature’s beauty.

The Mangroves

The mangroves in the islands of Andaman & Nicobar and the Sunderbans of West Bengal, are a treat to the eyes. The Sunderbans is also home to the majestic Bengal tigers.

The Backwaters

The backwaters of Kerala offer some of the best breathtaking views to the eyes. These further add to the beauty of the already beautiful “God’s Own Country”.

The Desert

One doesn’t need to travel to the Sahara to witness the exquisiteness of desert. The Thar Desert in Rajasthan will be an ideal desert destination!

The fertile planes

India is a land of rivers. The mighty rivers of India have blessed the country with one of the most fertile planes. A number of cities - Amritsar, Delhi, Kanpur, Lucknow, Allahabad, Varanasi, Patna, Kolkata and Guwahati – form a part of the fertile planes of the country.

The Beaches

India is a peninsula and hence has water on its three sides. The country has a long coastal line and hence has many beaches. From Goa in the West to Puri and Digha in the east, one can enjoy the gorgeousness of the seas.
