Travel writer reveals favourite India destinations
There are several different overland tours through India those wishing to visit the country can choose from, each with different routes and itineraries.
This means that hopefully whatever you want to see and do in India, there is a tour to suit you.
But it could also mean that travellers face something of a conundrum when it comes to deciding which places in this vast and varied country to include on their trip.
They may therefore benefit from the expert advice of Arun Bhat, a travel writer at Paintedstork.com - a travel and photography website focusing on providing a comprehensive guide with personal insights for those travelling in India.
Mr Bhat has revealed some of his all time favourite things to do and see in India, which could provide food for thought for those considering an overland adventure in the country.
And his first recommendation is to take a trip to India's most famous landmark - the Taj Mahal.
"One of the most popular destinations that most people want to visit is of course the Taj Mahal. It's something that's iconic of India and a thing that [most visitors] like to see," he said.
But for those looking to get off the beaten track, then the city of Hampi in northern Karnataka state could be worth a visit, especially if you have an interest in the history of the country.
"It's a place that has the history of an empire that existed 400 years ago and is really, really beautiful," said Mr Bhat.
"It has some very interesting landscapes and monuments that are 400 or 500 years old. So it has the interesting contrast of beautiful landscapes and history, which makes it really interesting."
Finally, Rajasthan is an eternally popular destination for those visiting India, and with good reason, says the expert.
"It's a desert region that is popular because it has its own individual culture that's not seen anywhere else and it's just beautiful."
