Opis

India is the largest country in the Indian Subcontinent and shares borders with Pakistan to the west, China and Nepal to the north, Bhutan to the north-east, and Bangladesh and Myanmar to the east. India is the seventh largest country in the world by area and, with over a billion people, is second only to China in population, although its much higher birthrate makes it likely to reach pole position in less than ten years. It is an extremely diverse country, with vast differences in geography, climate, culture, language and ethnicity across its expanse, and prides itself on being the largest democracy on Earth.

India's culture and heritage are a rich amalgam of the past and the present. This vast country offers the visitor a view of fascinating religions and ethnography, a vast variety of languages with more than 438 living languages, and monuments that have been present for thousands of years. As it opens up to a globalised world, India still has a depth of history and intensity of culture that awes and fascinates the many who visit there. India remains to be one of the world's fastest growing economies and one of the fastest developing countries. It is considered to be an emerging superpower. Therefore, your visit will indeed be an interesting one.

Time zone
Indian Standard Time (IST) is 5 hours and 30 minutes ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+5.5). Daylight saving is not observed.

Geography
Mountains, jungles, deserts, and beaches, India has it all. It is bounded to the north and northeast by the snow-capped Himalayas, the tallest mountain range in the world. In addition to protecting the country from invaders, they also feed the perennial rivers Ganga, Yamuna (Jamuna) and Sindhu (Indus) on whose plains India's civilization flourished. Though most of the Sindhu is in Pakistan now, three of its tributaries flow through Punjab. The other Himalayan river, the Brahmaputra flows through the northeast, mostly through Assam.
South of Punjab lies the Aravalli range which cuts Rajasthan into two. The western half of Rajasthan is occupied by the Thar desert. The Vindhyas cut across Central India, particularly through Madhya Pradesh and signify the start of the Deccan plateau, which covers almost the whole of the southern peninsula.
The Deccan plateau is bounded by the Sahyadri (Western Ghats) range to the west and the Eastern Ghats to the east. The plateau is more arid than the plains, as the rivers that feed the area, such as the Narmada, Godavari and the Kaveri run dry during the summer. Towards the northeast of the Deccan plateau is what used to be a thickly forested area called the Dandakaranya which covers the states of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, the eastern edge of Maharashtra and the northern tip of Andhra Pradesh. This area is still forested, poverty stricken and populated by tribal people. This forest acted as a barrier to the invasion of South India.
India has a long coastline. The west coast borders the Arabian Sea and the east coast the Bay of Bengal, both parts of the Indian Ocean.

Climate
In India, it rains only during a specific time of the year. The season — as well as the phenomenon that causes it — is called the monsoon. There are two of them, the Southwest and the Northeast, both named after the directions the winds come from. The Southwest monsoon is the more important one, as it causes rains over most parts of the country, and is the crucial variable that decides how the crops will do. It lasts from June to September. The Southwest monsoon hits the west coast the most, as crossing the western ghats and reaching the rest of India is an uphill task for the winds. The western coastline is therefore much greener than the interior. The Northeast monsoon hits the east coast between October and February, mostly in the form of occasional cyclones which cause much devastation every year. The only region that gets rains from both monsoons is North-Eastern India, which consequently experiences the highest rainfall in the world.
India experiences at least three seasons a year, Summer, Rainy Season (or "Monsoon") and Winter, though in the tropical South calling the 25°C (77°F) weather "Winter" would be stretching the concept. The North experiences some extremes of heat in Summer and cold in Winter, but except in the Himalayan regions, snow is almost unheard of. November to January is the winter season and April and May are the hot months when everyone eagerly awaits the rains. There is also a brief spring in February and March, especially in North India.
Opinions are divided on whether any part of India actually experiences an Autumn, but the ancients had certainly identified such a season among the six seasons ( or ritus - Vasanta - Spring, Greeshma - Summer, Varsha - Rainy, Sharat - Autumn, Shishira - Winter, Hemanta - "Mild Winter") they had divided the year into.

Culture
India's rich and multi-layered cultures are dominated by religious and spiritual themes. While it is a mistake to assume that there is a single unified Indian culture, there certainly are unifying themes that link the various cultures. India's cultural heritage is expressed through its myriad of languages in which much great literature and poetry has been written. It can be seen in its music - both in its classical (Carnatic and Hindustani) forms and in modern Bollywood music. India also has a vast tradition of classical and folk dances. Art and theatre flourish amongst the bustling cities of the country, against the backdrop of the ever expanding western influences.
Vibrant processions are seen going on everywhere, especially during festivals. Ganesh Chatutrthi processions in Mumbai, Dusshera in Mysore etc. are some important processions which have to be seen. Along with these, marriage and religious processions are also seen on the roads. You can see people dance, play music and drums, play with colors etc.
Indians value their family system a lot. Typically, an Indian's family encompasses what would be called the extended family in the West. It is routine for Indians to live as part of the paternal family unit throughout their lives - i.e. sons live together with their parents all their lives, and daughters live with their parents till they get married. The relationship is mutually self-supporting. Parents may support their children for longer than is common in the West, brothers and sisters may support each other, and sons are expected to take care of their parents in their old age. "Living with parents" does not carry the same stigma as it does in the US. Nowadays, most indian families are becoming more nuclear. Naturally, the arrangements are not perfect and there are strains and breakups, especially by the time the third generation grows up. Also, it has now become common for children to move away from the parental house for education and employment. Nonetheless, it is fair to say that the joint family is still seen as the norm and an ideal to aspire to, and Indians continue to care about their family's honour, achievements and failures even while they are not living together.
Despite the weakening of the caste system, India remains a fairly stratified society. Indians care about a person's background and position in society as is the case elsewhere in the world. This attitude, when combined with the legacy of colonial rule, results in some rather interesting, if unfortunate consequences. Paler skin is deemed desirable but there is no discrimination on the basis of color.

Visa

A transit visa is required to present a ticket for a further trip or return to the country. Visas are issued for consideration at the Embassy of India in Warsaw.

This pass connects the Kullu Valley to the south, with a humid climate inhabited by Hindu followers of the Lahaul Valley, with a slightly less damp climate, and swollen by Buddhists. On the south side of the pass is the Bjas river, and the northern river is Canaab. Coming from Manali, we are waiting for a Himalayan 50 kilometer drive to the altitude of 3,980 meters above sea level - at the Rohtang Pass. It is the geographical border between mainland India and Tibetan Ladakh. In Tibetan Rohtang - means "Stack of Thousands of Flesh". The place was covered with bad name, only for several years safe for mass traffic, although requiring great caution.

Bara Lacha La is a mountain pass in the Zanskar Mountains that connects Ladakh to the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It rises to an altitude of almost 5000 m asl and forms part of the Leh-Manali road. The summit of the pass is a crossroads of the former trade routes extending to Spiti, Lahaul and Zanskar. The surrounding slopes run down the rivers and waterfalls, and the Sun Lake (Suraj Lake) is nearby. The emerald water from which the river Bhaga flows. White snow and burgundy rocks adorn the green and blue stripes of water and clusters of five-color cloths that indicate that Tibetans or Tibetan rulers live in the area. Earth, air and water elements are found here in the raw, primitive, almost "geological" form. Every breath is like the height, and the winds of the sharp wind smear the faces of the wanderers.

Nakee La is a Himalayan mountain pass that leads from Manali 20 km of streamers and 21 turns known as Gatta Loops. Pass at an altitude of 4739 m above sea level leads us to the most interesting section of the route and Lachulung La Pass 5100 m asl - it is the first of five thousand on the route of our expedition motorcycles on the Himalayas.

Lachulung La - 5059 m asl is a mountain pass on the Leh-Manali route. It is 54 km from Sarchu and 24 km from Pang village. This is despite the height of one of the easier to pass the Himlaj Pass, although some people may have trouble breathing and symptoms of altitude sickness.

Kang La is another pass on our motorcycle trail through Himlaje at altitude of 4878 m asl, which leads us to Pang village. Rock formations resemble Arizona more than India. Kang La was a traditional route used by Lahaulis (Lahaul people) to cross Zanskar and further to Ladakh. The length of the pass is about 24 km. The triple crossing of Kang La is rewarding a great scenery. See meadow meadow with carpet of wild flowers. Around us snowy mountains and glaciers. You may feel like a retreat in time looking at the surrounding nature, the monasteries built on the rocks and quite primitive life of the inhabitants.

Pang, located at an altitude of 4767 meters, is the highest military camp in the world.

Moorey Plains (Morey Plains) - amazing, long 30 km and wide for about 500 m flat, like a table-like plains-like gorge. Passing this way on our motorcycle trip we will see amazing, breathtaking scenery. It is hard to believe that you are riding a motorcycle through the Himalayas over four and a half kilometers above sea level. The trail of rocky-rocky ground raises dust clouds. With the end of Morey Plains, a ramp begins at the highest point on our route, the Tanglang La Pass, which is also the gateway to Ladakh.

Taglang La is a mountain pass in the Himalayas with an altitude of 5328 m above sea level. It is located in Ladakh, India. It is one of the world's highest passable pedestrians.

Until recently the height of the pass was reported as 5602 m asl, making it the highest pass in the world. Recent research has shown that the actual height of Khardung La is 5359 m, and the highest passing pass is Semo La, which is 5565 m. The Khardung La Pass is 37 km from Leh. The lower parts of the road to the pass are covered with asphalt, but the higher parts are covered with gravel or mud due to melting snow.

Nubra Valley is an unusual place in Ladakh. For tourists only opened in 1994. The valley is located at an altitude of about 3050 m above sea level, at the confluence of the rivers Shyok and Nubra. The valley separates Ladakh from Karakorum. Near the river is an agricultural valley, while the higher slopes of the mountains are desert - sand desert with sand dunes. To nubry come in And cross the Khardung La Pass. The valley is one of the links between Ladakh and Pakistan - by the famous Siachan glacier and China through the equally popular Karakorum and Saser passes. Chang La is a pass leading from Leh to the great salt lake of Pangong. It is reportedly the third highest passage road in the world.

Chang La Road goes through the mountainous terrain without human settlements except for the tiny Tangtse settlement. However, there are sometimes nomads from the Changpa tribe. According to legend, he used to live here, although it is not known exactly when and where, a sadhu, Changla Baba, who was so big guru that his name was called a pass. But it's just a legend.

Pangong is the highest and largest saltwater lake in Asia. It lies at an altitude of 4350 m above sea level. It is about 134 km long and 5 km wide. Only 30% of its area is in India, the rest is in China. It is a disputed area of ​​both states. In winter the lake freezes completely, even though its water is salty.
