India is every bit as chaotic and unique as shown in movies and television shows. Historical sights like the Taj Mahal and geographic landmarks like the Himalayas rise from the busy crowds, adding to the character that draws visitors in. Truly an incomparable travel experience, India is a place that will test your flexibility and sense of adventure and awaken your spirituality. Lying just north of India, Nepal welcomes travelers to see Mount Everest, find a path to enlightenment, and witness a world of natural beauty that compliments India well.

What should I pack for sightseeing, etc.?

Light cotton tops, shorts, and trousers are all great. The best colors to wear are khaki, beige, and white. Light cotton, long-sleeved clothing is particularly recommended for game drives. If you are traveling during the winter months, be sure to pack more warmly, as temperatures can drop dramatically. Dress codes for religious sights do apply. You may be required to cover your head and/or shoulders, and you should always wear shoes. Some temples do not permit any leather articles at all, and other temples are simply not open to Non-Hindus. Most museums in India are closed on Mondays, while most Site Museums (those near archaeological monuments) on Fridays.

Do I need a visa to visit India?
