1. Prepare for extremes - Both in terms of weather as well as your experiences. With the highest mountains, one of the longest coastlines, and a multi-cultural people, expect the unexpected.
1. Go Offbeat - Rather than moving around main tourist hubs, real India can only be explored though its smaller towns which have a unique local flavor to them.
1. Experiential over Luxurious - When deciding on the kind of places to visit or reside in, go for options that bring you closer to the local surroundings and give you a better change to engage with the local communities. With over 30 states, each with its own food, language, heritage and culture, one can only feel India through its people.
