It's certainly true that a picture can say a thousand words so, as India and Nepal celebrate what must be one of the world's most colourful religious festivals this week - Holi - we thought we'd share this gallery courtesy of the Guardian.
If you haven't experienced this riot of colour for yourself, where Hindus throw coloured water over each other and during which usually strict social norms are relaxed (it's wild!) why not book yourself in for next year? Holi falls on 27th and 28th March in 2013 and we've a stack of trips which co-incide, including our 14 day Road to Delhi trip and our 22 day North India Unplugged trip.
Our tailor made adventure holidays will truly inspire and delight the senses and will live in your memory for ever.
