India Tourism: India Tours and Travel
Namaste, welcome to India Tourism, the land that derives it's name from one of the world's oldest and richest civilizations-the Indus Valley civilization where culture echoes, tradition speaks, beauty enthralls and diversity delights.
Indian Namaskar or Namaste is the most popular form of greeting in India. It's a general salutation used to welcome somebody and also bidding farewell. In India people welcome you to their houses with folded hands (NAMASTE)-no matter to which part of the world you belong to, while doing Namaskar, both the palms are placed together and raised below the face to greet a person.
Several hill stations served as summer capitals of Indian provinces, princely states, or, in the case of Shimla, of British India itself. Since Indian Independence, the role of these hill stations of India as summer capitals has largely ended, but many hill stations remain popular summer resorts.
India offers a wide range of superb beaches with silver/golden sand to coral beaches of Lakshadweep. States like Goa and Kerala have exploited the potential of beaches to the fullest.
India is also home to several well known large mammals including the Asian Elephant, Bengal Tiger, Asiatic Lion, Leopard and Indian Rhinoceros, often engrained culturally and religiously often being associated with deities. Some well known national wildlife sanctuaries of India include Bharatpur, Corbett, Kanha, Kaziranga, Periyar, Ranthambore and Sariska. The world's largest mangrove forest Sundarbans is located in southern West Bengal. The Sundarbans is UNESCO World Heritage Site.
