In Delhi, denim-clad teenagers skip about the streets with cell phones plastered to their ears listening to the latest Bollywood track. Mere miles away on the slopes of a nearby rural village, cows move freely down dirt roads past women in saris preparing midday meals by hand. This is India: a contradiction in culture, in time, and in history, and one of the few places on earth where historical change unfolds in real time before your eyes.

Escape to this eons-old civilization that stands teetering on the edge of an illustrious past and an ever-promising future with this ten-day trip inside India from Encounters Travel.
