Adventure Holidays to Asia

Asia offers a bewildering choice of experiences for the adventurous traveller. Over the years we have scoured the backroads of this vast continent to bring you a comprehensive range of trips that cover the highlights and many of the lesser known gems. Tourism does benefit many local communities in Asia and at Exodus we are actively supporting them by helping to fund local schools and projects such as our tree nursery in Nepal.  Asian wildlife is also under threat from poaching and other population pressures and visits to national parks can provide valuable employment and hence income to surrounding villages and encourages the protection of wildlife. Although parks such as Nepal's Chitwan, Sepilok Orang-Utan Sanctuary in Borneo and Ranthambore in India are not short of visitors, we also visit lesser-known ones like Khana and Kaziranga in India - vital habitats for the tiger and Asian rhino respectively. Burma (Myanmar) is now opening its doors to visitors after a brief hiatus and we have introduced a new trip to re-discover its treasures.

 

What the experts say about our adventure holidays in Asia

 

Tiger in Bandhavgarh, India 'My elephant has stumbled across a tiger. It sounds like the least used line in a Hindi phrasebook, but it's the truth. And instead of being safely down around the elephant's feet, the tiger is at eyelevel, on a ledge just 8ft away. He watches our panic with disdain, his thick fur spilling in golden folds over his rocky perch, his whiskers catching little rainbows in the dappled sunlight, as the mahout, or elephant jockey, frantically tries to back up.'
Chris Haslam, Sunday Times, travelled in India in 2007
