Where to Go on Holidays in India with Elderly Parents?

Plan a Holiday Trip with Your Elderly Parents with this detailed incredible travel guide blog.

It’s been less than a week since I went to Nainital and saw this really old couple, about 75 years of age, enjoying boating in the sparkling lake in monsoon… It was definitely a moment of a lifetime to capture! Sadly, the fact is that most of us do not include our elderly parents on family trips and everyone has their own reasons ranging from their old age, inability to travel to simply their lack of interest to explore something new. Well, honestly, your old parents need a vacation or two to escape their ill health and despondent state of mind.

It is rightly said, “Age is just a number.” One who is young at heart can live their grand life even when they are old. With the growing age, traveling should not come to halt. Traveling is actually one of the greatest joys one can have as “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”. As we live in a diverse country like India, you can never be out of choice for planning a trip with your aging parents.
