India has always been home to a myriad of different species and cultures. Since time immemorial it has been known as the realm of precious jewels and luxury. To this date, the country is all but shrouded in mystery for a lot of other nations.

What adds more to this mystical veneer is its beautiful and diverse world of floras and faunas. From golden sand beaches to a salt desert, and snow-capped mountains and dense rain forests, India is known for its geographical diversity. And, this has blessed the land with exotic wildlife species; making it a paradise for nature enthusiasts.
