Bejewelled Splendour

India

Nobody leaves India unchanged

As one of the most diverse countries in the world, India offers incomparable variety. Walk the streets of any Indian city and find a dizzying array of religions, languages, food and culture that few countries can boast. Explore secretive jungles, spice-laden markets, places of pilgrimage and fairy-tale castles lost in time. For those wishing to combine adventure, culture and stunning wildlife, India cannot be matched.

The Himalayas in the north are the world’s mightiest mountains. Their lofty summits have enticed intrepid adventurers and devout spiritualists from across the world for millennia. In complete contrast Rajasthan parades its princely splendour with opulent palaces and imposing forts, whilst photogenic pink and blue cities spring from the desert and Kipling’s jungles harbour a thriving population of wild tigers. In the west, the Kashmir region is renowned for cold deserts and Buddhist rituals, while in the east one can recharge in the colonial cool of Darjeeling’s tea plantations, take puja on the holy Ganges at Varanasi and explore the Kingdom of Sikkim. The pace slows in the tropical backwaters of southern India – the perfect antidote to the chaos of the north and the ideal place to relax after an action-packed trip.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
