North India Region

The North Indian States include the "Paradise on Earth", Kashmir, the mountainous 'Kingdom of the Gods', Himachal Pradesh and the fertile plains of the Punjab, the 'Land of the Five Rivers'.

Jammu & Kashmir - Made up of three geographical regions, India's northern-most State, Jammu & Kashmir, rests like a crown on its map. The hilly plains of Jammu lie in the south, the high altitude desert region of Ladhakh is in the north. And in the middle, like a dazzling jewel in the crown, is the mountainous valley of Kashmir. Six mountain ranges traverse the land - the Shivalik, the Pir Panjal, the Great Himalayan, the Zanskar, the Ladakh and the Karakoram ranges and it is watered by the Indus, Jhelum and Chenab River.

When in Srinagar a leisurely cruise on the lake in a shikara in a not-to-be-missed experience. You could take a short hour-long ride to see the sights of the Dal Lake, a shopping trip to floating handicraft shops on the lake or a day-long trip to visit the city's landmarks.

Himachal Pradesh - Lying south of Jammu & Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh is a mountain State of great natural beauty and spiritual calm. Lush green valleys surrounded by lofty snow-clad peaks, rivers roaring through gorges or flowing placidly in the valleys, dense forests of deodar and oak, flowering meadows, glaciers and high altitude lakes - Himachal Pradesh has all this, and much more. Its gently inhabitants - mostly farmers and semi-nomadic shepherds, are renowned for their honesty and tolerance. The large majority are of Aryan stock and devout Hindus, with a rich cultural heritage and tradition of flok dance and music. Thousands of temples dot the land, each village with its own deity.

Little wonder that ancient Hindu scriptures refer to it as 'Dev Bhoomi' - 'the Land of the Gods'.

Punjab- This fertile land is home to the hard working, fun loving, ubiquitous Punjabi. Through the centureis, it has borne the brunt of invasions and wars and more recently, the trauma of India's partition. Each time the people have risen, confident and optimistic. Fiercely patriotic, they take great pride in volunteering for the armed forces in large numbers.

Delhi- Capital of the world's largest democracy, and home to some 10 million people, Delhi lies sprawled across the river Yamuna, occupying close to 1500 sq. km. It is a microcosm of India - people, music and dance, customs, traditions and cuisine, from all across this rich land blend within its flods. Exploring the metropolis can be a fascinating experience.
