Индия - India

India is a place where there are many cultures and religions and because of this the land is one of mystery and contrast.
Geography and environment
The country is the 7th largest in the world and because of this the landscape is extremely diverse. 60% of the land is arable, but there are also vast mountain ranges, deserts and forests. The climate is tropical monsoon and has three seasons. The wildlife is varied with animals like: monkeys, buffalo, antelopes, elephants and crocodiles.
Things to do and see
The most famous monuments are the Taj Mahal, the Sun Temple and the Khajuraho Shrines. For those who love the great outdoors, the Himalayas in the northeast provide the ultimate challenge but for the idle the beaches of Goa and the Andaman Islands are the ideal retreat. The food is tasty and very spicy but for those who cannot eat a hot curry there are other delicacies worth trying such as: Tibetan dumplings, various noodle soups and the local barley wines. In the evening after a busy day sightseeing or shopping you can relax and watch a classical dance troupe or fall asleep to the melodies of the sitar and Indian flute.
