Backpacking Countries You Must Visit - India

Many people love this country and others hate it. India is the country of contrasts and lots of dimensions. The marvels of the Himalayan peaks, steppes, amazing beaches and magical tea plantations blend with over-populated, unclean, and far too noisy cities. However, this huge country found in the Southern Asia is a magnet for hundreds of backpackers. Adventurous travelers will never be disappointed. India is actually fascinating and addictive. It’s also super inexpensive. Backpacker accommodations are a bargain, meals are extremely cheap, and even cheaper in the local restaurants and cafes.

The primary points of interest would be the Taj Mahal mausoleum, beaches of Goa, Darjeeling hill station, Varanasi holy town of Shiva, and the Himalaya regions such as Ladakh and Leh. Even though these are popular traveler tracks, the vibe, beauty and charm of these locations is really worth experiencing.

In Hinduism, sadhu, or shadhu is a common term for a mystic, an ascetic, practitioner of yoga (yogi) and/or wandering monks. The sadhu is solely dedicated to achieving the fourth and final Hindu goal of life, moksha (liberation), through meditation and contemplation of Brahman. Sadhus often wear ochre-colored clothing, symbolizing renunciation.

India has an excellent rail service, which is quite cheap, but the huge distances between the cities and major destinations make the trips very long and tiring. You can find also lots of private and public buses that run very frequently. Airplanes will also be an option; if you book in advance you can get a good price.
