Many people come to tour India every year but a lot of these tourists are not aware of the different things and places that they can see in India. Some good ‘Tours India’ packages can take you to the beautiful islands of India, which are situated in the Indian mainland and also away from it. There are many different types of Islands in India like river islands, lake islands, islands of the sea and of course, archipelagos that people can visit during their India tours. These islands are integral to the culture of the nation and yet they have a distinct identity of their own.

Many Travel India packages include the different islands of India but not all the islands are included in such packages. The different islands that one can visit during their India tours are:

Andaman and Nicobar - These groups of islands situated in the Bay of Bengal are very popular with the tourists due to the beautiful beaches. The aboriginal inhabitants of the islands have been living there for thousands of years and they have not changed their lifestyle. These islands are also rich in flora and fauna and the forests there are also popular with tourists. Adventure tourism activities like scuba diving, trekking and forest camping attract many tourists who go on India tour.

Lakshadweep - Situated on the Lakshadeep Sea, this group of three tiny islands is inhabited by people who have been influenced by many Indian and Foreign cultures. The islanders are mainly fishermen by profession; they speak Malayalam and follow Islam. Skating is one of the activities that attract people to these islands. The beaches are very beautiful and scenic and so these islands are included in most India travel packages.

Diu - The union territory of Diu is an island which is located off the south coast of Gujarat. The island was under the Portuguese rule and so, there is a major Portuguese influence on the life and culture of the people there. Diu fort is one of the popular destinations of the island. It is included in most travel India packages.

Majuli - It is the largest river island in India and is surrounded by the mighty Brahmaputra River. It is a serene place which is situated at a distance of around 200 KMs from Guwahati in Assam. It used to be the largest river island in the world but continuous soil erosion has reduced its total land area. There are many ancient temples and religious centers in the island, which are worth visiting during your India tour.

Loktak Lake Islands - Located in Imphal, the capital of Manipur, the floating islands of this lake are famous for their bio-diversity. Loktak Lake is the largest fresh water lake in the world and many different species of birds and animals can be seen in the islands of this lake and the surrounding area. It may not be included in most travel India packages.

Thus, the islands of India are very exotic and very popular with most of the tourists who visit India.
