FESTIVALS

India is the land of festivals – riotously colourful, resplendent in its celebration, and steeped in tradition. To truly immerse yourself in a new culture, let down your guard and participate in the merrymaking. Festivals are also the best time to see the local tribals in their authentic costume, practice their rituals and honour their traditions that are being lost in this fast-modernising world. Please note that only a few festivals have fixed dates for the year; the dates for the rest of the festivals are released as per the alignment of the sun and moon.
