North India

This part covers the Capital of India, Delhi. Every experience, every sound, every smell shouts that you’ve arrived somewhere magical. Somewhere Special.

It is here that the deep love of one man for one woman created the Taj Mahal; where the King of Kings ruled; where the sacred Ganges flows past holy cities; where the Himalayas stand silent and magnificent; where 5000 years of culture waits to be absorbed.

Though Northern India lies mainly in the north Temperate zone of the earth. Though cool or cold winters, hot summers and moderate monsoons are the general pattern, Northern India is one of the most climatically diverse regions on Earth.Northern India is dominated by Indo-Aryan languages.
