#3 Ajanta And Ellora Caves
Amazing architecture and history combine to provide a unique experience in India’s most popular caves. Magnificently carved into hillside rock near Aurangabad, the level of detail and craftsmanship is spell-binding. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and with good reason. 34 caves at Ellora date between the 6th and 11th centuries while the 29 caves at Ajanta are even older. The carvings are a mix of Buddhist, Jain and Hindu and are a must-see excursion on your Indian adventure.
Much of India is busy, bustling and a bit in your face so if you want somewhere beautiful to unwind then the backwaters of Kerala are the ideal place. Palm trees hang over the water’s edge as you glide along in a houseboat without a care in the world. You’ll discover unique wildlife, riverside villages and a pace of life you could get used to. With freshly prepared Indian food available on board, you might never want to disembark. Known for its elephants and unspoiled tropical landscapes, this is the India you’ll fall in love with.
