India - Basic Information

India is perhaps the ultimate travel destination, containing some of the most spectacular sights anywhere in the world. Yet to many visitors, India is an enigma. It can give you the best and worst of times-often in the same day. An extended visit will throw up plenty to surprise, plenty to amaze and plenty of frustrate. India is such a huge and diverse country that it almost impossible to take it all in at one visit. You can see the world's highest and most impressive mountain range, some of the finest architecture creations ever fashioned, and even the odd beach or two. The so-called golden triangle of travel in India is here in the north.

India occupies a strategic position in Asia, looking across the seas to Arabia and Africa on the west; Burma, Malaysia and the Indonesian Archipelago on the west. Geographically, the Himalayan ranges keep India apart from the rest of Asia.


Location

India, a land of variety and beauty occupies a strategic position in Asia, the Himalayan ranges and Nepal separate India from Tibet and China. The boundary line between India and China is called the McMahon line. In the east are Bangladesh and Mynamar, in the west Pakistan and in the south lies the Indian ocean and Sri Lanks, Gulf of Mannar and Palk straits separates India from Sri Lanks.Kanyakumari constitutes the southern tip of the Indian peninsula where it gets narrower and loses itself into the Indian Ocean.

Islands

Andaman & Nicobar: Andaman is the northern cluster of 204 islands and Nicobar of 19 small islands.

Lakshadweep

Lakshadweep is a group of 27 coral islands scattered in the Arabian Sea 300 km to the west of Kerala coast.

Climate

India has three main seasons:-

1. Rainy season or Monsoon: June to October

There are two types of monsoon-the south - west monsoon which is from June to September. The north-east monsoon, which is from October to December and is confined to the east coast particularly on Tamil Nadu.

2. Summer: April to June

During the summer, the mountains and hill resorts are cool and pleasant. Barmar in the west of Rajasthan remains the hottest with temperature shooting up to 50° C during daytime.

3. Winter: October to March

The Himalayan regions are the coldest, particularly Drass and Kargil in Laddakh where temperature falls below 4° C.

How to reach India

India can be reached by air, sea or road. However, in recent years, over 97% of all tourists have been arriving by air. India has direct air link with all five continents except South America. Over 50 international carriers fly to and through India. The four major international airports ar Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata.Other small international airports are Varanasi, Patna (from Nepal), Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram and Cochin (Kochi). The charter flights bringing foreign tourists to the country are now allowed to operate to Goa, Agra, Varanasi, Jaipur, and Bangalore.

Flights from the UK and Ireland: It takes between eight-and-a-half and eleven hours to fly from the UK direct to India.However, most airlines route passengers through their hub city on the way, which can double the total traveling time.

Flights from the US and Canada: India is on the other side of the planet from the US and Canada. If you live on the East Coast it's somewhat shorter to go via Europe, while from the West Coast it's quicker via the pacific, but either way it's a long haul, involving one or more intermediate stops, and you'll arrive fresher and less jet-lagged if you can manage to fit in a few day's layover somewhere en route.

Flights from Australia and New Zealand: There are no nonstop flights to India from either Australia or New Zealand; you have to make at least one change to plane in a Southeast Asian hub city (usually Kuala, Lumpur, Singapore or Bangkok).
