India

India is an incredibly colourful and diverse country from the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas and the bustling markets of Jaipur, to the sandy white beaches of Goa. It’s not surprising then that India hosts 30 World Heritage Sites, including the world-famous Taj Mahal, Buddhist temples, wildlife parks and intriguing caves. This amazing country is also known for its festivities, food and of course, cricket!

Unfortunately, India is also well-known for its high level of poverty and in many areas, both rural villages and city slums, access to quality education is limited and millions of people have an extremely poor quality of life.

QUICK FACTS

  • India is the largest democratic country in the world and the birthplace of the Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist religions
  • Yoga and Martial Arts also have their origins in India before being spread around the world!
  • The city of Jaipur is known as the ‘Pink City’ as it was once painted completely pink! Even now residents have to preserve the old pink buildings
  • It is not known the precise amount of languages spoken in India, but it’s thought to be over 1000
  • India has 3 of the world’s top 10 ‘megacities’, as well as having a number of extremely rural regions, such as the villages that sit on the slopes of the Himalaya mountain range.
  • India has a huge coastline and beautiful beaches the most famous of those being the beaches of Goa!

TRAVEL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Culture: India was the birthplace of the Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist religions so there is plenty of different ways of life to experience here. Chat to the locals, try the traditional foods and visit the stunning temples and places of worship.
  • Mountains, coastline, cities: India is a vast country with something for everyone. Whether it’s hiking in the Himalayan mountain range or sunning yourself on the beaches of Goa, it’s a fantastic holiday destination. If you have some time before or after your trip, definitely mix it up!
  • Food: India is famous for its food, but you’ll find that taste, spices and preparation differs across the different regions of the country. Be sure to try everything that you’re offered, whether that is fine dining, street food or a home-cooked curry!
  • World Heritage Sites: From the Taj Mahal to Buddhist temples, India is home to 30 different world-renowned tourist sites so be sure to tick them off your bucket list!
  • Wildlife: India has over 100 different National Parks, filled with some of the most magnificent wildlife, including rare rhinos and Asian elephants!

GETTING THERE

As the 7th largest country in the world, it is no surprise that India has a multitude of international airports. Serving our volunteer projects in Goa and Jaipur are the Goa International Airport and Jaipur International Airport, both of which are served by airlines worldwide.

From the USA, some flights fly directly into India or there are options to fly via the Middle East with airlines such as Etihad, Jet Airways or Emirates.

From the UK and rest of Europe, the majority of airlines fly directly to India these include Etihad, Jet Airways and Air India.

From Australia or New Zealand, airlines including Etihad, Jet Airways and Qatar fly directly to India or via the Middle East.

For our Himalayan projects, the majority of volunteers will need to fly into one of the central Indian airports and then take a domestic flight to the required local airport.
