North India boasts of the mighty Ganga and the gargantuan Himalayas. Its mountainous beauty is just too good to be true. Plus, there are some really top-class cities which can make you gape and gawk in amazement. For any tourist (whether Indian or foreigner), spending 7 days in north India would be akin to spending a day in paradise.
Here are some of places to visit in India under 7-day holiday packages:
i. Agra: Agra is the city which owns Taj Mahal, or rather one should say that it is the Taj Mahal which owns Agra (and the rest of the world)! If you need to visit one monument before you die, then it has got to be the Taj. From Brett Lee to Michael Clarke to Bill Clinton, every category of celeb has made it to the Taj and clicked his photo which got splashed on global papers. If you, being an India, have still not visited the Taj, then it is a matter of great monumental shame!
ii. Delhi: Delhi, the capital of India, is swanky, modern and yet holds its own in history. Its huge battery of monuments, forts and minarets (Red Fort, Qutub Minar, India Gate, etc) make it one hell-of-a-city! No wonder, most north Indian tour packages include Delhi in the itinerary.
iii. Rajasthan: Rajasthan, the mighty desert state, is the unofficial cultural capital of the country and also the historical one! Its impressive forts and that feel of the Rajput age easily give you the tremors. From camel rides to pink monuments to lakes to palaces, a trip to Rajasthan is a trip to the 15th century.
iv. Kashmir: Kashmir is easily one of the most hypnotic places to visit in India. It is the home to Himalayan ranges and the permanent resident of the icy Dal Lake. Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonamarg are destinations which are so beautiful that you couldn't stop rhapsodizing about them! And the nearby Ladakh can just add that perfect dash of adventure to your tour, if you so desire!
v. Shimla and Kullu-Manali: If you are touring north India, how could you miss out on the Himachal! The towns of Shimla and Kullu-Manali have a dreamy landscape and those seductive mountains. Kufri is a snow-churner offering plenty of sports like skating and skiing. And places to visit in Shimla like Christ Church will always have an inviting lure to them.
