Goa holiday and Tour packages
Think Goa, and what you see is – A vast expanse of powdery beaches hugging azure seawaters, the Goan feni, fish curry and rice, raw cashews, winter Carnival, lively Konkan folk music and dance, splendid churches and temples, a fusion of Indo-Portuguese architecture, and beautiful villas.Goa lies to the south of Maharashtra on the verdant Western Ghats, and has Karnataka on its east and south. It is bordered by the Arabian Sea to its west, so every beach merges with an endless stretch of a mighty ocean, filling you with awe. The Portuguese traversed these waters to reach Goa. But you can rest on the beach, suntan yourself, and dream away.
There are water sports aplenty – you can swim, dive, wind-surf, or water-ski. Scuba diving is especially popular due to the vast variety of marine life and corals. Scooter-riding in the water adds to the fun, while para sailing can send your pulses aflutter.
The state has a rich legacy of wonderful monuments. There are full day guided tours to North and South Goa to take tourists to all the important landmarks and beaches. The Aravelum Caves of the seventh century, Stone Age rock carvings found in the state, lakes and springs, and the cascading Dudhsagar waterfalls in the Ghat area, are other places worth a visit.
There are special tours for the devout. The Bom Jesus Basilica, housing the mortal remains of St Francis Xavier, is a World Heritage Site; so are Old Goa’s churches and convents. The Santa Monica Convent with a statue of the bleeding Jesus, Panjim’s church of the Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, and a Marian Apparition at the Saints Simon and Jude church in Batim Ganxim, draw many visitors. There are several temples and a couple of gurdwaras also. The Mangeshi temple is a landmark, as the father of the world-famous Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, was born in Mangeshi and used to sing there. Goa is also the home of Kishori Amonkar and Remo Fernandes. So we hope Goa Tour Packages are going to offer several excited places along with never fade memories of trip.
Goa enjoys a tropical monsoon climate, making December-January the best time for a visit, also the time of the Carnival, which means advance bookings for a place to stay. The Goanese celebrate many festivals including Holi, Ganesh Chathurthi, Dusssehra, Diwali, Easter, the Feast of St. Francis Xavier and Christmas. A salubrious climate brings tourists to Goa throughout the year.
Rajasthan – Forts and palaces Travel Destination
India’s jewel of the desert region. The famous Pushkar fair in Jaisalmer where cattle are sold, is extremely popular for the glimpse it provides into the rural life of the Rajasthani people, as much as for the Thar Desert safari, a ride on camelback, and watching the tribals sing and dance in gay abandon.
There are tigers to be seen at Sawai Madhopur and Sariska, if luck is on your side; off-the-beaten track small towns and villages; the eloquent marble splendour of its grand palaces and temples; attractive havelis with intricate stone carvings; beautiful lakes; several splendid forts; the world-renowned Dargah of the famous Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chisti at Ajmer; the ‘open art galleries’ as Mandawa’s painted havelis are called; and, Chittorgarh’s fort that bears testimony to the sacrifice of the legendary beautiful and brave Rani Padmini, as well as other historic ruins, which though muted now bear testimony to the tales of Rajput sacrifice and heroism they have witnessed, albeit in a distant past, but tales that touch you and bring out goose pimples as you think of those days of yore when Rajput men were chivalrous and the women matched them with their courage.
There’s the ‘pink city’ of Jaipur, with most houses and buildings made of pink stone, its’ Hawa Mahal, a fine museum, the Amber Fort where you can depend on an elephant to take you up to the entrance, Jantar Mantar – an astronomical observatory – on the World Heritage list, and Jaipur’s captivating City Palace which sprawls across a huge area. This capital city of Rajasthan is also very popular with tourists for the wide range of merchandise it sells – clothes, sarees, linen, pottery, lacquer jewellery and gems. Udaipur, ringed in by the Aravalli range, is known as the state’s most romantic city, and is famous for its lake palace set in the midst of Lake Pichola, where the James Bond film ‘Octopussy’ was partly filmed, where you can take a boat ride, visit the aesthetically-built temple of Lord Vishnu and visit a beautiful garden, Saheliyon ki Bari, made for the pleasure of the queen’s maids-in-waiting. Visit to the generally lovely shopping places of Rajasthan for tour packages, hotels here offer you the real flavor of royal living with warm welcome, warm care, and warm farewell.
Between Udaipur to Jodhpur, while you travel through lush valleys, you will come across the astoundingly beautiful Ranakpur Jain temples of the 15th century, an enigma in marble, with 29 halls and 1,444 pillars. The stone images of dancing deities and design work has been so beautifully carved that it appears to be a kind of a fine lace spread all over, rather than stone carving! With the shift of the sun’s rays during the day, the colour of the pillars in the prayer hall changes from golden to pale blue!
Ladakh is a Beautiful and Natural places in India
The Nubra district offers spectacular views of the majestic glaciers and peaks surrounding it, besides meadows and valleys. Camel safaris and sunbathing in Hunder’s sand dunes are other activities you can go for.
On terra firma, the beautiful Shanti Stupa; the ancient, magnificent Royal Palace – Leh Palace; picturesquely situated Sankar Gompa; Namgyal Tsemo Gompa housing a three-storey high statue of Buddha; the historic Gomang Stupa with Buddhist rock carvings; the Museum; Community Centre; and, Victory Fort, are where the tourists head to. Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, a uniquely built gurdwara near Magnetic Hill, which is supposed to arrest movement though it is an illusion, are also visit a visit.
The Ladakhi people are a welcoming lot. Their homes are made from softwood and the cuisine is much like that of Tibet, with thupka or noodle soup and a meal of roasted barley flour called ngampe. Its’ always cold leh in Ladakh you can fill during the travel, and woollens are required throughout, with heavy woollens essential in the winter months. There are hotels and restaurants serving all types of cuisine, to cater to lakhs of visitors. Besides, there are spas and shops where you can pick up your souvenirs.
Sheer cliffs of snow, frozen valley floors and huge walls of ice all around; when there’s no-one between you and nature….awesome, starkly bewitching; that’s Ladakh. There are the divinely beautiful lakes – Tsomo-riri, Tso-kar, and Pangong-tso. And then there is the highest cold desert in Leh with rocks of varying colours. Steeped in mystery and colourful: the land of Buddhist monks and quaint monasteries, famed for its masked dance festivals, elaborate costumes and jewellery worn the natives, with alpine steppes, glaciers and lakes, and a desert standing around 3,500 m above the sea, Ladakh enchants even in its barrenness.
Once you step foot on Ladakhi soil, you will find the air reverberates with Tibetan monks chanting slokas in Tibetan and Sanskrit, as Buddhism lies at its’ heart and soul. At an altitude between 9,000 ft-25,000 ft, separated from Kashmir by the Pir Panjal range but part of J&K, Ladakh or ‘Little Tibet’ has challenges aplenty for the daredevils. You can go for a jeep safari, trekking and mountain-climbing in its Karakoram ranges, or even river-rafting in the Zanskar River but it should be only with professional guides.
