Holy Smokes, Holi!

Admiring pictures and videos of Holi, the festival of color and love primarily observed in India, Nepal, and other regions of the world highly populated by Hindus or those of Indian origin, is a year-round pleasure — nobody tires of the celebration’s immense beauty — but now is especially opportune; the springtime festival rolls around in March this year.

Festival-season or not, guides in India will show you the country’s never-ending beauty, but Holi is particularly the time when people come together to share happiness. India’s sightseeing guides and lifestyle guides will take you to very colorful markets boasting tropical fruits of all sorts, and clothing of a myriad of vibrant colors, but if you really want to experience color in India, travel the country during Holi, a free-for-all carnival of colors that entails merrily and energetically tossing (at one another) dry powder and colored water. The best part: everyone and anyone is fair game, be they friend or stranger, rich or poor, man or woman, children or elders.

With immense wisdom and experience, experienced tour guides in India are without a doubt the folk you’ll want to be paired with come Holi-time. Each year, the color-coating extravaganza reaches new levels, and guides know the latest tricks in how to spread your color the farthest. Let’s just say that water guns filled with colored water, and water balloons loaded with the same matter, are not rare. Count yourself warned, but, most of all, count yourself fortunate that you have the ability to hire a guide in India to partake in this year’s Holi celebration with.
