Located in the extreme north of India, Ladakh is a beautiful area situated in the gateway to the Himalayas. The main towns of Leh and Kargil are as high as 2800 and 3500 meters. But what makes Ladakh special is the fact that, unlike the rest of Asia and India, it is not subject to monsoons. It’s also very close to Tibet. Although it’s a rather dry and arid region, it remains one of the most beautiful areas for trekking. You can visit many Buddhist monasteries such as the Shey, Tiksey or Lamayuru monastery, as well as the Leh Palace. And if you prefer the great outdoors, then you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery. You’ll be greeted by authentic villagers who will be delighted to introduce you to their traditions, all while being on dizzying heights that reach 7000 metres and near lakes of incomparable purity. Beyond Ladakh, we also offer tours and excursions in the neighbouring countries of Nepal and Bhutan, the lands of happiness.
Rajasthan is India's largest state. Its most important cities are Jaipur, Kota, Udaipur, Ajmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Jaisalmer. Rajasthan is divided into two distinct parts: • The northwest that lies on the Thar desert, which borders Pakistan • The much more populated southeast, located in the fertile valley of the Chambal, which separates the desert with the Aravalli Range. Rajasthan is a rather dry state that can go for several years without precipitation. South of Udaipur, in the tip between Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh lies an ancient region called Vagad, a former stronghold that was severely deforested the Bhil tribe. On the road to Rajasthan, you can’t miss the majestic Taj Mahal: The grace and perfection of its proportions, the grandeur of its geometric patterns, gardens that balance the entire complex – all of that adds magnificence and delicacy to this beautiful depiction of love, devotion and purity. The Taj displays its moods through its varied shades. It’s pink in the morning, milky white in the evening, and changes colour when the moon shines.
The Centre is one of India’s most visited regions, for here lies the monument of Love - the famous Taj Mahal, as well as the holy city of Benares, with its exceptional temples of Khajuraho, Bodh Gaya and Sanchi (places of Buddhism). Central India enthrals animal lovers. You'll find the Kanha wildlife sanctuaries and Courbette, which is known worldwide for the beautiful and majestic Bengal Tiger. The royal palaces and forts of Gwalior and Orcha and resort residences that are located on the hills of Mussoorie and Nainital are the starting point of many hiking trails.
The East of India is a remote area filled with wild, untouched beauty and inhabited by many tribes that have mostly retained all of their culture. Calcutta, India’s second largest city is the main destination for travellers in this part of the country. The region has an exceptional diversity of landscapes, peoples and cultures. Mangrove forests bordering the Bay of Bengal, the beautiful mountains of Sikkim and Darjeeling, the temples and beaches of Orissa – all of them are essential aspects of eastern India. Also, the gardens and tea plantations of Assam and Darjeeling are renown and world famous.
The region of Tamil Nadu, located south of the Vindhya Mountains is extraordinary. It has exceptionally sumptuous temples. Considered to be the cradle of ancient Dravidian culture, the Tamil Nadu region extends from the Coromandel Coast all the way to the Ghats in the east. The heart of this state is home to the Kaveri’s fertile valley. With its rice fields and temples, it’s a site of the former Chola kings’ majestic temples, especially those in Thanjavur. Visitors will also discover magnificent temples, the Chidambaram Madurai being the highlight. You’ll also see Mahabalipuram, a port city dating back to the seventh century, which has been declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, as well as the former French enclave of Pondicherry.
Kerala, the land of the gods, is situated between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea. Located in Southern Goa, Kerala is a region full of coconuts, rice fields, beaches, lakes, lagoons and tropical forests. A quarter of the population here follows Christianity, which was introduced by St. Thomas. Visitors can admire the beautiful wooden Padmanabhapuram palace, the Dutch palace, synagogue and all the imposing colonial buildings in Cochin. In Kerala, politics play an important role. This isn’t surprising considering Kerala has the highest literacy rate in India. Kerala is also known worldwide for its Ayurveda practices.
Goa offers some of the best beaches in the world. Traditional huts, sandy beaches, palm trees and fauna are just some of the wonders found on the coast of the Arabian Sea. But the green vegetation, fine sand and crystal clear waters of the warm sea are not the only pleasures found in Goa. The Mediterranean-like atmosphere shows itself in the peaceful, laid-back way of life in the villages. The vibes here are quiet and relaxed, unlike what you’ll find further inland. Offering a wide choice of hotels, Goa is truly the perfect destination for relaxation. Goa is easy to reach from Delhi, Mumbai and Cochin with regular flights available. Goa is such a beautiful and rich state that’s actually quite small and quiet. The architecture has a Portuguese influence and you’ll see a mixture of religious traditions on display. Festive evenings here are fun as well. All of this makes Goa a destination that’s so easygoing and so enticing. Some must-sees during your stay in Goa are Panaji, the beaches of Candolim, Anjuna, Vagator, Morjim and Palolem, the Old Goa Basilica of Bom Jesus, the Church of St. Francis of Assisi, the Cathedral of Saint Catherine, as well as the Night Bazaar in Arpora and the flea market in Anjuna.
