If the adventure you have in mind is one where you find yourself so absorbed with your surroundings that you end up off the track, then India is a great choice.
You will genuinely get the best experience here if you do decide to wander from the trails and absorb as much as you can. However, it would still be worth your while to dine with the locals to enjoy the rich culture that exists here. With so many traditions falling away in the 21st century India is one of a few regions that boast century-old traditions.

Planning Your Experience
If you have never backpacked before, then you may be a bit challenged when it comes to organizing the experience. However, unlike most other types of vacation adventure, it would be best to plan your trip as little as possible to get the richest adventure filled with wonder.
Rather than trying to detail each day of your trip, you may find that many backpackers book a flight and set off with no more than a bag of essentials; leaving the rest up to their imaginations. This would be the best way to navigate your way through a foreign country. It would be wise to settle the vital stuff before leaving, such as your accommodation and a brief plan of sorts, especially if it is your first backpacking trip.
