Mini Guide to India

Weather

India is a hot tropical country and the majority of the time you’ll probably be sweating under the sun. However, travelers willing to cool down can go to the north and reach the base of the Himalayas and enjoy snowfall from November to March. What travelers should be worried about are the monsoons, which happen from June to September (Southwest) and October to February (Northeast).

Indian Cuisine

Travelers will be spoiled for choice when it comes to savoring the Indian cuisine, particularly vegetarian visitors as there are many strictly vegetarian Hindus, Jains, and Buddhists. It’s important to note that the food is extremely spicy and it might take some time until you adjust to it. Each state has its own specialties, but don’t leave India without trying different dhals, curries, chutneys, bread, and of course, the juiciest mangoes.
