About the Course

“There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place.”

– Keith Bellows, National Geographic Society

India is the world’s most popular tourist destination, visited for its landscapes, flora and fauna, rich heritage, and much more. The natural beauty of India is unmatched with contrasting regions and spectacular landscapes – from the cold deserts of Ladakh to the snowy mountains of Himachal, from the desert dunes of Rajasthan to the lush forests of Madhya Pradesh, from the endless golden beaches of Goa to sailing in houseboats of Kerala backwaters, from the off-beat destinations in Odisha to diving into the unspoiled waters of Andaman and Nicobar…

Multicultural India gives a feeling of traveling from one country to other with its fascinating and diverse experiences of languages, festivals, dance, music, and cuisine. India has a rich heritage of palaces, forts, temples, caves, and monuments like Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, Khajuraho, Ajanta, Hampi, Vivekananda rock memorial, and many more…

Every journey in India is filled with rich and fulfilling experiences. In 2019, over 1.85 billion domestic tourists traveled across India and 10.89 million foreigners arrived in India. With these ever-increasing numbers, the tourism industry in India offers many career opportunities with a chance to tour the beautiful country and experience it first-hand.
