India: a feast for the senses

India’s cities and towns are a captivating myriad of sights, sounds and smells and our India trips take it all in. Away from the frenetic cities, India has a more serene side. For those seeking a tranquil break, head south into a land of rolling tea plantations, hill stations and golden palm-thronged beaches. Those venturing north beyond Rajasthan will find themselves in a region few have even heard of, Ladakh. It’s a land of jagged sky-scraping peaks and remote villages nestled in the lush foothills of Himalayan giants. 

Then there’s the astounding sunrise over the Taj Mahal – our guides know the very best spots to watch from – or the swirl of colour along the River Ganges during morning prayers. Adventure seekers might prefer to imagine themselves standing amidst the mighty Himalaya or in a 4X4 Jeep spotting your first tiger in the wild. These are the unique experiences that holidays to India offer.

But for all its natural wonders and beauty, it’s the local people that really make India holidays truly memorable. India evokes emotion like no other place, capable of making your heart sing one moment, and cry out the next. A trip to India is less of a holiday and more a voyage of discovery, once there it will grab you and leave an indelible mark on your soul.
