Northern India is bordered by Pakistan to the west, China, Nepal and Bhutan to the north, and Bangladesh and Myanmar to the east. Hindi and English are the two official languages. After colonisation by Great Britain in the mid-1850s, India achieved independence in 1947, mostly by non-violence. India is home to 1.1 billion people and is richly diverse. This vast country's northern region is home to it's capital city, New Delhi, as well as many pilgrimage centers such as Varanasi, world heritage sites such as the Taj Mahal, several excellent universities, countless national parks and reserves, and breathtaking flora and fauna. Rajasthan is one of India's most touristically popular northern provinces, of which Jaipur is the state capital. This area is well known for it's rich cultural heritage. The Indian people, 80% of whom follow Hinduism, are kind and welcoming. Popular trips for tourists include the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur), Dharamsala, and the palaces of northern India. Considerations: get appropriate vaccinations before you leave, avoid getting too close to Pakistan, never keep your wallet in your back pocket, avoid using your left hand (particularly when eating), don't smoke in public and do not sunbathe topless (it's illegal).
