North India, a heaven for mountain lovers, adventure enthusiasts and those who would just admire the beauty of its historical cities. There are many scenic and off-the-wall hill stations settled in the Himalayas which make beautiful holiday destinations. There is also the Taj Mahal whose beauty is unmatched. These locations are so breathtaking that it gets tough to choose one from the list of gorgeous places to visit in Northern India.
From heat to history to amazing cuisine to the chills of the hill stations, North India has everything. If you are in North India you can enjoy all those things that you would have to travel to different places to enjoy if it was some other country. Wanderlust always looks for places as per their choice some like adventure and the snow while there are some who prefer history and I have even seen travellers who travel to taste different cuisines. And where else would you find an overflow of various cuisines other than North India.
It is a miss conception that North India only means snow and winter sports. North India is a place that can be visited any time of the year. Be it summers to enjoy the hills or the winters to enjoy the plains and its rich history. You should never miss out on its mouth-watering cuisine.
Here are some of the reasons that will make you fall in love with North India:
Fall In Love With Its Cuisine:
If you are visiting India for the first time and you have started off your journey with North India, you will simply fall in love with its cuisine. Something that you may find new and unique is the cuisine is all about curry. You will learn to enjoy food, not with a spoon but your fingers. Experiences eating at some of the best street food stalls also try your hand in Indian cooking at some local food cooking classes. Your first trip to India will not only open your heart to visiting different places but will also rejuvenate your taste buds with new and different but unique taste.
The Hustle Bustle Of The Capital:
I just cannot deny the fact that Delhi is one of the busiest city. Delhi is known for its hustle and bustle, but you won’t truly understand it until you’re standing within it. Transport is quick and easy, from autorickshaws to taxis which makes your travel from Old Delhi to the metropolis that is New Delhi very easy. Take a trip on the Delhi Metro to the ancient Qutub Minar Complex, or seek some much-needed peace at the Jama Masjid, located in the heart of Old Delhi and make sure you do not forget to enjoy an evening at the light and sound show at The Red Fort. One caution you must keep in mind while travelling in Delhi avoid a metro ride during the peak office hours as it will just save your mood from getting ruined which will ultimately spoil your trip.
Shopping In The Pink City:
If you are a solo female traveling around India then shopping is on your travel itinerary. Even I love to shop while travelling as every place I visited had its own collection of items that I wanted to add to my collection. It is true that every place you go to has its own share of uniqueness. Like people who take a trip to Banaras never comes back without buying a Banarasi saree. Similarly, if you want to experience the beauty of authentic shopping, you should go shop in the Pink city.
Jaipur or the Pink City is the home to many colourful and endless bazaar’s that offers silver jewellery, handmade saris, shoes and much more. You would hope to buy everything you see in these markets. If you are planning to visit Jaipur do not forget to take a trip down to one of the many mazes of the Pink City. A quick tip always barters for your favourite garments or shoes or jewelleries it will save you a good amount of cash. Get ready to indulge in a new kind of shopping experience.
A Click With The Magnificent Taj:
A trip to India is incomplete without witnessing the Taj Mahal in Agra. This magnificent monument which is the symbol of love still occupies its spot on the list of the worlds’ 7 wonders. Taking a picture with the Taj is a must if you visit Agra. This architectural masterpiece is still perfect today as it was when it was made in 1653. Every year over twice the population of Agra visits the Taj Mahal as this is once in a lifetime experience.
Train Journeys Can Also Be Fun:
Though almost all cities in India is well connected with domestic flights, but still, you should experience India’s famous rail system as this would turn out be a great and fun filled experience. But you should always book your tickets beforehand in an AC coach so that your journey can be smooth as unlike flights the rails fill up faster in India.
So, are you ready for your first North India trip or if you are an Indian take a trip to North India all over again but this time sees North India in a new light.
