What does a tourist deprive himself of when he is in India?
In India, there are a lot of travelers who rush to the sights, bypassing no less interesting moments in the life of the population.
What might interest tourists in India?
Visit the Kutch area where you can meet craftsmen at work. They produce the most expensive and high quality textiles in all of India. Each thread of this textile is saturated with the sun and love for work. In India, everything is done with love and conscience. Here you can not find a single artisan who will grumble with his work.
The salt flats of Kutch Little Rann are the last resting place for wild donkeys, as well as a breeding ground for flamingos. These wonderful animals are eye-catching and give true pleasure to connoisseurs of beauty. Flamingos are slender and very graceful, they know how to fascinate and intrigue. While in India, it is also worth visiting the Sasan Gir Wildlife Sanctuary - the only place on earth where you can meet Asiatic lions in the wild. These proud and determined beasts, which are rightly called kings. Majestic and restrained, they make one feel awe and reverence for their great nature.
Is the trip safe?
Gujarat is not immune from natural disasters, like no other place on earth. Therefore, it is impossible to call any trip safe. For example, in India in 2001 there was a strong earthquake. Therefore, a trip anywhere is a lottery ticket. And what can I say, you can not be safe in your own country. This is a matter of chance. But if we talk about India, then conflicts periodically break out among Hindus and Muslims living nearby (the last major conflict was registered in 2002), but some tension between the local population is unlikely to cause any damage to tourists. It is one of the most developed regions in India. This is the place where the first cheapest car in the world, the Tata Nano, was produced. And it's worth seeing!
Where does the real wilderness of these places begin?
The real hinterland here is considered to be Girnar Khil, located near the ancient city - the fortress of Jinagadh. Join the pilgrims and porters at dawn to get through the thousand steps from Jane to the Hindu temples. During these thousand steps, you can not only enjoy the landscapes of India, but also think about your life, your destiny and your destiny. It is possible that during this "campaign" you will find the meaning of being.
What can you eat?
Thali is a Gujarati vegetarian dish consisting of curried rice, pickles and cottage cheese. Of all the local dishes, Thali is the lightest and least peppery and is most often served with buttermilk. You will definitely like this dish. Despite the strange combination of products, it is worth eating. This dish is very hearty and incredibly tasty.
What should you read before traveling?
Gandhi's Autobiography - The Story of My Experiments with Truth. Gujarat was the birthplace of Gandhi, and he lived his life in the largest city of this region - Ahmedabad.
