ORIENTATION
India is a large, triangular-shaped country in southern Asia, buttressed by the long sweep of the Himalayas in the north and protruding into the Indian Ocean in the south. Pakistan borders it on the northwest, China, Nepal and Bhutan to the north, and Bangladesh and Myanmar to the east. Sri Lanka is the teardrop-shaped island hanging off its southern tip. India covers a land area of some 3,287,000 sq. km (1,281,930sq mi.).

It is the seventh largest country in the world. Northern India contains the snow-bound peaks and deep valleys of the Himalayas and the vast Gangetic Plain, which separates the Himalayan region from the southern peninsula and stretches from the Arabian Sea to the Bay of Bengal. South of the plains, the land rises up into a triangular-shaped plateau known as the Deccan. The plateau is bordered by the Eastern and Western ghats, ranges of hills which run parallel to India's eastern and western coasts and separate the fertile coastal strips from the interior.

CLIMATE
Climate varies greatly, from the arid deserts of Rajasthan to the cool highlands of Assam, allegedly the wettest place on earth. But basically India has a three-season year - the hot, the wet and the cool. The heat starts to build up on the northern plains around April and cools off by September. The monsoon rains begin around June and end August. India's northern cities start getting cool by October and become crisp at night in December. In the far south, it never gets very cold, the temperatures are comfortably warm rather than hot.

Time Zone -: India is 5 hrs 30 minutes ahead of GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) in the winter months India is 4 hrs 30 minutes ahead of GMT.

HEALTH INFORMATION
We urge you to read the health requirements and/or recommendations given here carefully and to discuss health precautions for your exact travel itinerary with a qualified health professional at least six (6) weeks before you depart.

Immunization against polio, tetanus and typhoid is recommended. Visitors arriving from yellow fever area require valid vaccination certificates. Malaria is endemic in certain parts of India; consult a doctor for anti-malaria prescription. Additionally carry any anti-mosquito cream or lotion for local application. Modern hospitals exist in all major cites of India but visitors are advised to travel with sufficient quantities of prescription drugs.

Passport copies can be mailed in or faxed to us at 91-11-6461911.

It is imperative that every traveler arrive on tour with the proper documentation. While HOLIDAYS TO TREASURE will advise you of our most current information concerning passports, visas, and other entry requirements, please be aware that it is the traveler's responsibility to obtain all documents that are necessary for admittance to the countries visited on his/her itinerary.

ARRIVAL AND CUSTOMS INFORMATION
Please be advised that regulations at most points of international arrival do not permit passengers to be met inside secured passenger areas (such as the Customs area). In addition, airports in India are occasionally put on short-notice, high-security alerts; and, at these times, passengers can only be met outside of the airport building. If a HOLIDAYS TO TREASURE representative is scheduled to meet you on arrival, you will be met immediately after you have passed through the airport's secured passenger areas.

On arrival in India, you will be required to complete a Currency Declaration Form (see section on CURRENCY).

AIRPORT CHARGES
Airport departure tax applies at different levels for neighboring countries and these may or may not be included in the cost of your air ticket.This can be rechecked before departure from your ticketing/travel agent. However, currently for neighboring countries it is Rs. 150 and for international departures it is Rs. 500. For domestic flights, there are only check-in and security formalities. At certain points, you may be asked to personally identify your baggage before boarding the aircraft. Please be advised that airport departure taxes are subject to change without notice.

RECONFIRMATION OF FLIGHTS
When you arrive in India, your airline tickets will be collected by your HOLIDAYS TO TREASURE representative so that departure flights can be reconfirmed. Flight reconfirmation is essential in India, and failure to do so is likely to result in cancelled reservations.

ELECTRICITY
Electricity 220 AC. Socket sizes vary widely: take a universal adaptor.

LANGUAGES
Popular languages are Hindi and English, plus 15 main languages and over 700 dialects are spoken in India.

PHOTOGRAPHY
If you are taking photographs of local people, always ask their permission beforehand. Your driver / guide will assist you in this and will possibly help you agree on a modeling fee. Do not take photographs of any official buildings, such as military installations, airports, railway stations, boarder posts or roadblocks. It is advisable to carry your camera in dust-proof bags especially in the dry season. Film rolls are available in most hotels and lodges but it is advisable to stock up in major cities.

BAGGAGE INFORMATION
There are several different sets of baggage allowance regulations in effect for international and regional flights. Baggage allowances can vary depending on which airline(s), class of service, and routing is used. Despite the information given here, you are urged to check with your booking agent for the exact baggage regulations pertaining to your specific itinerary.

Please be advised that baggage limits are adhered to very strictly on both international and domestic flights. Most domestic carriers have more restrictive baggage limitations than international carriers. On domestic flights, the baggage allowance is 30 kilograms (66 lbs.) per person for those traveling in economy class and 40 kilograms (88 lbs.) per person for those traveling in business class.

In case of a small plane being used for travel within India or Nepal, the maximum baggage allowance varies between 15 to 20 kilograms (33 lbs.) per person.

Any baggage in excess of airline limitations may be subject to substantial freight charges by the airline. These charges are the entire responsibility of the traveler. (Please be advised that some domestic airlines categorically refuse excess baggage. Also, payment of excess baggage charges on domestic flights within India and Nepal may not guarantee that the baggage is transported.) Every piece of checked baggage should be locked and contain identification inside (as well as outside) stating your home address and phone number. In addition, do not pack valuable items (such as your camera and jewelry) in checked baggage. While every precaution will be taken with your baggage, HOLIDAYS TO TREASURE cannot be held responsible for any damaged, lost, or stolen baggage or personal property; and we strongly recommend the purchase of adequate baggage insurance by each traveler.

Canned foods, knives, scissors, or other sharp objects that may be considered potentially dangerous should not be packed in your hand luggage. If you are carrying items of this nature, be sure that they are packed in your checked baggage.

TIPPING
Many travelers view tipping as a difficult subject, though this need not be the case. The first thing to remember is that tipping is not compulsory, nor are there any fixed amounts. The bottom line in determining whether and how much to tip is to ask yourself how much the individual did to make your travel more enjoyable.

GUIDES
Trained English speaking guides are available at fixed charges at all important tourist centres. French, Italian, Spanish, German, Russian and Japanese speaking guides are available at most of the important cities.

Unapproved guides are not permitted to enter protected monuments and tourists are, therefore, advised to ask for the services of guides who carry a certificate issued by the Department of Tourism/Archaeological Survey of India.

EXPORT OF ANTIQUES
Antiquities, which include sculpture, painting or other works of art and crafts, illustrative of science, art, crafts, religion of bygone ages and of historical interest which have been in existence for not less than 100 years may not be exported out of India.

Manuscripts or other documents of scientific, historical, literary or aesthetic value in existence for not less than 75 years; art treasures, not necessarily antiquities but having regard to the artistic and aesthetic value cannot be exported out of India.

For further clarification on the antiquity of an artefact, the tourists can contact the authorities and get information on the Acts and Rules governing Antiquities and Art Treasures Act, 1972.

CURRENCY
The Indian Rupee (Rs), divided into 100 paise (p). There are no restrictions on the amount visitors can bring into India. Travelers carrying more than US$ 5000 in cash and US$ 10,000 in traveler’s cheque are required to fill in a currency declaration form. Most hotels and large shops accept credit cards but smaller properties and game lodges do not. Only change money at official banks and hotels and keep your receipts, which is required in the event of your changing the Indian currency to your own currency.
