Indian Adventure

Experience India from close to know India better. For those accustomed to sterilized physical comfort, India exists only as a sightseeing destination amazing at that sure. See Taj Mahal at Agra, visit the historical monuments of Delhi, see Kahjuraho temples and live like a Maharaja in Rajasthan.

For those who can bow down low to grass root level and bear the discomfort that creeps in at times India exists as incomprehensible diversity that survives. It is a trubid sea of ups and downs, tragicomedy and bundle of delights, hope and hopelessness.

A travel volunteer serving at grass root level experiences India at much closer distance then a traveler who travels in five star comfort and gets a bird eye view of the country. Volunteering enriches on with a perspective that is truly Indian...not adultrated with western norms and attitudes. It is in rural society of the less fortunate that India exhibits it true colors. Seek an Indian nonprofit organization or an Ngo and let your journey begin...serve and discover India.

Indian Road Travel

Driving on the Indian roads is the most challenging task during India tour. India has vast road network that stretches miles and miles across. From six lane expressways to two lane highways and main roads, roads in the interiors you ask for it and there is a road.

Roads made of bitumen or good ones made of cement and the usual cross country and jungle roads which are popularly know as metal roads...most primitive type of road in the country.

The roads are classified as good and bad roads and those which do not come in either category are referred to as "ok" roads. During preparation for a road trip the first travel tip that is considered is the road condition, weather and climate come much later perhaps after the details of roadside food joints, dhabas and tea stalls have been inquired about.

Well whatever the road may be it is assured for an enthusiastic traveler it is the way to an exciting unexplored destination of India for him. That is the fun of travel in India the real good roads lead to more or less homogenous globalized metro or capitals but the rough roads to lead exciting destinations like historical places, wildlife reserves and eco resorts.

And in extreme cases road or no road ...keep move ahead...India awaits you.
