over the last eleven years, some three and a half years
travelling and exploring the world. One of my favourite and
certainly the maddest place I've been to, has to be India. A country which is so diverse and so strong
in it's Culture that it has absorbed everything the West has
thrown at it, taking it onboard, yet still remaining distinctly
Indian. The Culture shock when first arriving in Indian is so
great, that you might as well be stepping off the shuttle onto
Undoubtedly it is not for
the faint hearted and it is not somewhere, where you should go
for a two week holiday, as it takes this long to get over the
shock of arriving! But once you get used to the environment there
is a wealth of exploring to be had. From the beauty of the
Himalayas - Mcleod Ganj (home of the Dalai Lama), Manali and Ley
to the sweltering paradise beaches of Southern India - Vakala
(being one of my favourites) and with a mass of bubbling humanity
in between, you are certainly spoilt for choice.
Central to Northern India,
which has It's own particular brand of madness, is also well
worth visiting, with the Jamborees and Desert walled cities of
Rajasthan a real Highlight, although be sure to visit this area
in the cooler winter months. Kashmir is another area of great
beauty, but don't believe all the Kashmiri's you meet who tell
you it's safe to go up there, as we did - although being a truly
scenic place and worth the hair raising ten hour Coach (well, it
resembled a coach of some description) journey up insane mountain
roads with even madder Indian horn happy drivers, you arrive to
find a city (Srinagar) which is deserted of everything it seems
except the Indian Army, which have commissioned every hotel in
the area as barracks.
Nightfall curfew in place,
there is little to do in the evenings except listen to rifle fire
and eat the slop they serve you on the houseboats - as they know
there is nowhere else for you to go. This aside and in a few
years time when and if Kashmir becomes Kashmir and a resemblance
of normality returns to the area, it will be well worth a visit.
Four or Five months of
India and it is definitely time to head on to the land of
complete and utter comparative Luxury - with a quick, which could
turn into an indefinite stay if your not careful, visit to the
spiritual capital and home of the Ganges - Varanasi. All I will
say is that it is a definite MUST, but prepare yourself for a
surrealist out of world experience. Once you've dragged yourself
out of Varanasi, head for Nepal, preferably by plane which is definitely
less life threatening than the road up to Kathmandu from India.
Kathmandu, you will think you have arrived in the lap of luxury,
if you arrive at the Airport follow the man who's going to the
Jagat Hotel - you wont be disappointed - well not after India
anyway. After you've fed yourself to your hearts content and been
in more Temples than a monk, pay a visit to Himalayan Encounters
(owned by a friendly Aussie) at the Kathmandu Guest House in
Thamel and let them organise your Trekking and White Water
Rafting. If you have to choose between the two, I'd say go
Rafting as It's an experience you'll never forget and as for
value for money - It's unbeatable.
