Don't Take Our Words For It

Traveling to India was a dream of mine for many years. Even though I had been on many self planned and guided trips around the world I just didn’t know where to start. Luckily somehow I stumbled across the India for beginners page on Facebook. From first contact Mariellen and her team really listened to my desires interests and needs.

After we decided to go to India on the spur of the moment from Sri Lanka, we did some fast research on options. We knew we wanted to see the Golden Triangle and spotting a tiger had always been on our bucket list. We also knew that they were hundreds and hundreds of companies offering Golden Triangle tours.

All went great, thank you so much for arranging the trip and helping me along the way with all the extra help and attention. You truly made the adventure very easy. I am very grateful that I stumbled across India for Beginners, it’s exactly what I needed. India is often overwhelming and it would not be as enjoyable navigating it alone. As a solo adventurer, it was exactly what I needed, thank you! .

Packing Tips For India

Light and modest clothing

When in India, opt for long, lightweight clothing to shield yourself from the heat and to show respect for the conservative culture, particularly when visiting religious sites.

Sun protection

Given India’s renowned blazing heat and abundant sunshine, be sure to pack essentials like a hat, UV-protected sunglasses, and SPF 30 sunscreen to ensure sun safety during your trip.

Binoculars

Include a pair of binoculars in your packing list for jungle game drives in India. They will prove invaluable for spotting elusive tigers and other incredible wildlife in Ranthambore National Park.

How To Responsibly Travel In India

Do Not Support Exploitative Elephant Tourism

Avoid engaging in exploitative elephant tourism activities, such as elephant riding or trekking. These beautiful creatures are often subjected to abuse and mistreatment for prolonged periods to ensure compliance or performance within tourism venues.

Maintain Modesty

Cultural sensitivity is crucial in India. Remember to cover your legs and shoulders, and refrain from public displays of affection such as kissing, as they are considered inappropriate in the local culture.

Say No to Plastic

Contribute to minimizing India's waste disposal challenges by opting for refillable bottles and bags. This environmentally conscious choice helps reduce the introduction of excess plastic waste into the country.
