India is the seventh largest country in the world. It covers about 3,287 thousand sq kms. approx. the same area at the whole of Europe. This is the largest democracy in the world. India occupies a strategic position in Asia, looking across the seas to Arabia and Africa on the West and to Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesian Archipelago on the east. Geographically the Himalayan ranges keeps India apart from the rest of Asia


India is bordered on the north by Nepal, Pakistan, China, and Bhutan. At one point, ‘Lands End’ at Kanyakumari, three seas meet - the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. The sights, sounds, and scenery of India are unique and amazing with grandiose temples, lush paddy fields and stunning beaches. In the north, Shrub-land and desert create a sublime backdrop and a visit to the ‘Golden Triangle’ (Delhi/Agra/Jaipur/Delhi) will take your breathe away.
