Take off on a Family Vacation to North India: Rajasthan, Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh
A vacation in North India provides a wide range of experiences. Besides the majestic snowy splendour of the Himalayan peaks, the magnificent deserts of Rajasthan, and the glorious scenic beauty of Kashmir, this holiday destination is packed full of culture, adventure, history and legend and is a great place for family travel.
Aptly named the ‘Land of Kings’, the glorious natural inheritance of Rajasthan has inspired countless artists, writers and architects to create monumental works since time immemorial. Its landscape is a palette smeared with the shimmering gold of desert sands, smudged with the deep green of lush plains and dotted with the warm brown of the Aravalli hills. Interspersed amongst this scenic splendour are magnificent historical jewels such as the intimidating kingdom fortresses, the intricately designed frescoes and the wondrous city of Jaisalmer that blooms like a desert Rose. Take in all this and more with a city tour of Rajasthan where you get to explore the best of places like Jaipur, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Udaipur.
Surrounded by the icy splendour of the snow-filled Himalayan peaks, Kashmir is a lush strip of paradise with flowing emerald green valleys, vibrant gardens and shimmering aqua lakes. This dream destination is also the perfect spot for a family vacation as it has a range of fun activities for all family members. Try your hand at a game of golf that is 2,700 m above sea level, take a shot at water skiing across Kashmir’s many shimmering lakes, relax and float leisurely down the shaded willow lakes in shikaras or pamper yourself by spending your holiday on a luxury houseboat. If you are thinking of a family vacation, Kashmir has a number of tourist-friendly destinations ideal for a family holiday, like Srinagar, Sonmarg and Gulmarg, Katra, and Pahalgam.
Known for its pleasant weather early in the summer season, Himachal is a masterpiece of breathtaking scenic wonders. With intimidating, sculpted mountain peaks, lush, undulating valleys and crystal clear, gurgling mountain brooks, this is a favourite family holiday destination. One of the most famous family travel places in this region is Shimla, a charmingly scenic and lush hill station which is a perennial favourite for those interested in family travel. Another gorgeous holiday spot is Manali, which is spread along the banks of the mesmerising River Beas, within the lush Kullu Valley.
For a fabulous family holiday which mixes adventure, relaxation and discovery, take a vacation in North India. Ask your travel operator for holiday deals in North India, and look for packages that allow you to explore places like Rajasthan, Kashmir and Himachal. When looking for family travel packages, make sure to opt for a deal that suits the needs of each and every member of your family.
