MUMBAI: Whether it’s an ambitious road trip throughout Rajasthan or a luxurious stay at a Maharaja’s palace, India beckons to the traveler who is seeking experiences over photo-ops. This month, CNN explores how India is meeting the latest trends in tourism, by employing its diverse array of travel possibilities.

CNN ventures to the regions of Uttarakhand and Rajasthan in northern India to find out how the South Asian country is attracting global travelers. From global music festivals to picturesque mountain retreats to encounters with India’s biodiversity, CNN’s ‘Travel Trends India’ showcases the memorable experiences the country has to offer.

Highlights of the 30-minute special include:

Enjoy a rustic homestay near Nainital, Uttarakhand

Founded in 1841 as a resort town for British colonial officials, the popular hill station of Nainital is nestled in the mountainous state of Uttarakhand. Known for its recreation, mythology as well as panoramic views of the Himalayas, the gem of the Lake District is built around a mango-shaped lake. For nature seekers and boating enthusiasts looking to live like locals, Nainital exudes an old-world charm with homestays that make it a rustic getaway. CNN finds respite at The Retreat, a 150-year-old former British tea plantation, in neighboring Bhimtal.

The palace-turned-luxury-hotel in Jodhpur, Rajasthan

In Rajasthan, one can take in a deep history of royal heritage with ease. The lavish Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, one of the last grand palaces to be built in India, is also one of the world’s largest private residences, part of which is now being managed by the Taj Hotel Group. Located amidst 26 acres of lush greenery, the complex includes perfectly-manicured gardens, a throne chamber, a banquet hall, and four tennis courts. Its current custodian is Maharaja Gaj Singh II, whose royal family occupied the palace’s 347 rooms since construction was finished in 1943.

Motorbike tours from Delhi to Rajasthan

Few experiences compare to the roar of a motorcycle on the open road. In India, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts are offering the allure of a road trip from Delhi to the culture-rich landscapes of Rajasthan. CNN links up with Vintage Rides, a tour company that combines the love of the iconic Indian Royal Enfield bikes with a passion for adventure. Along the way, the group stumbles upon a village fair and wedding celebrations amid desert landscapes and mustard fields.

Udaipur World Music Festival

Started in 2016, the Udaipur World Music Festival is an annual gathering of world-class musicians from around the globe. This year, 150 artists from 16 countries will take to the stage at venues scattered across the romantic Lake City. From Rajasthani folk music to Catalan pop, jazz to gospel, the gathering elaborates how India is meeting the demand for large-scale, multi-day festivals with cultural events like this one.

Wildlife in Jim Corbett National Park, Uttarakhand

India’s oldest national park was established in 1936 to protect the endangered Bengal tiger. Today, the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand state is a sprawling 520 square kilometer expanse of more than 400 different species of flora and fauna, thriving against a backdrop of hillscapes and grasslands. For the wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers, the park offers safari experiences where India’s rich biodiversity can be spotted up close.

‘Travel Trends India’ is produced by CNN Vision, the global production powerhouse of CNN International, which brings the world’s breath-taking diversity into cinematic focus, telling stories that inspire audiences around the world.
