An exotic land, from floating palaces to golden deserts and lush jungles to colourful markets, India is simply beguiling. The Subcontinent always offers an unforgettable experience, whether it’s dawn at the Taj Mahal in Agra or receiving blessings along the Ganges.
We’ve been travelling in India for the last 22 years, providing the latest information on where to eat, sleep and drink, as well as seeking out the unexplored corners of this vast and enchanting country.
We’ve sent our authors across the country on epic bus journeys, they’ve spent weeks exploring the backwaters of Kerala and walked for days on a frozen river in the Himalayas to bring our readers the best of India.
Now, we want to send three of our readers to experience the joys of travel in India – with a Rough Guide in their hands, of course.

In partnership with adventure specialists Exodus Travels, we are giving away a choice of three Exodus tours to India, including flights provided by Incredible India, to three lucky winners. See the details of the trips offered below:
• Tigers in Focus: for an escape into nature
Seven days of tracking tigers in Tadoba State Park – a beautiful wilderness in Maharashtra with a stable but still threatened tiger population. By concentrating time in one well-controlled park where western visitors are few, the chances of finding this elusive but mesmerising predator are vastly improved. Leopards, bison, sloth bear and numerous birds are also resident, but it’s the tiger that makes this safari so successful.
• Colours of Rajasthan: for an ultimate Indian adventure
A 13-day adventure exploring the best of India’s colourful desert state Rajasthan, from the imposing forts of Jodhpur and Jaipur to the palaces in Udaipur, via Fatehpur Sikri and the breathtaking Taj Mahal. Plus, a stay in the charming town of Bundi with its blue alleyways, temples and a hillside lake.
• Tropical Southern India: for a backwaters break
Spend 14-days cruising through India’s tropical south – a land full of fertile forests, sweeping grasslands and tea plantations. Enjoy the tropical paradise that is Kerala on a houseboat, as well as exploring Fort Cochin and the teal plantations at Munnar, then marvel at the temples in Madurai, Tamil Nadu – southern India’s most colourful state.
