Attractions and places North India

Delhi:Delhi is the capital of India.Delhi tourism offers the most vibrant and colourful aspects of Indian culture.There is an amazing range of activity from cultural walks, talks, theatre productions and art exhibitions to films by Indian and foreign directors. One can find an option at the Habitat

World at Lodhi Road as well as Siri Fort at Khel Gaon.Major Attactions of Delhi:

1. Red Fort:
Delhi’s most famous monument, the Red Fort, stands as a powerful reminder of the Mughal emperors who ruled India. Its walls, which stretch for over two kilometers (1.2 miles), were built in 1638 to keep out invaders. However, they failed to stop the fort being captured by the Sikhs and the British. To take your imagination back to the ancient era, a one hour sound and light show of the fort’s history is held each evening.

2.Jama Masjid:Jama Masjid is another marvelous treasure of the Old City, and is the largest mosque in India. Its courtyard can hold an incredible 25,000 devotees. The mosque took 13 years to build, and

was completed in 1650. A strenuous climb to the top of its southern tower will reward you with a stunning view across the rooftops of Delhi. Be sure to dress appropriately when visiting the mosque or you won’t be allowed in. This means covering your head, legs and shoulders. Attire is available there.

Chandni Chowk:Chandni Chowk, the main street of old Delhi, is a shocking contrast to the wide,

orderly streets of New Delhi. Cars, cycle rickshaws, hand-pulled carts, pedestrians, and animals all compete for space. It’s chaotic, crumbling and congested, but completely captivating as well.

3.Qutab Minar:Qutab Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world, is an incredible example of early Indo–Islamic architecture. It was built in 1206, but the reason remains a mystery. Some believe that it was made to signify victory and the beginning of Muslim rule in India, while others say it was
used to call the faithful to prayer. The tower has five distinct stories, and is covered with

intricate carvings and verses from the holy Quran. There are also a number of other historic monuments on the site.

Adventure Trekking Experience During Himalaya Holidays India

This is an account of a trek to Gaumukh – the snout of the Gangotri glacier, where the mighty river Ganga emerges and to Tapovan – a high altitude meadow above Gaumukh in the Garhwal Holidays to Himalaya.

The first time that we visited Gangotri. We were fresh after our trek to Dodital and Darwa and wanted to round off our Himalayan adventure with a trek to the origin of the Ganga – or the Bhagirathi, to be more precise. However, we reached Gangotri after a 5-hour drive from Uttarkashi, only to be told that we needed permits for the trek, which are issued at Uttarkashi! The rules for Trekking tours India in the newly-declared Gangotri National Park decreed this and this was the first time entry to this area was being regulated – which was why nobody had cared to mention this to us, I guess. As we tried to get over our disappointment by doing hill walks in this picturesque region, we resolved to come back again next year.

Preparations

So June 2009 found us at Uttarkashi, all geared up for our adventure and having 2 days in hand to secure that precious slip of paper. As it turned out, we needn’t have worried – getting the permit at the Kot Bungalow forest department office was a fairly straightforward affair and we spent the rest of the time visiting the National Institute of Mountaineering campus and doing small scrambles on the pretext of acclimatization. It is important that one acclimatizes well to minimize the ill-effects of altitude on one’s body. To allow the body’s mechanisms to adjust to the rarefied air of the high Himalaya, one needs to spend time at various intermediate points and not rush directly to one’s destination.

Next, we headed out to Gangotri and spent a couple of days there, taking walks along the banks of the Bhagirathi, relaxing and drinking in the picturesque mountain scenery that surrounds this holy town. It is here that legend states that Raja Bhagirath did penance and practiced austerities to bring down Mother Ganges Tours to redeem his ancestors. It is said that Gaumukh – the snout of the Gangotri glacier was near present-day Gangotri many years back and slowly receded over time to its current location 18 miles from Gangotri.
