|Dear Serious Traveler,
We invite you to visit all three of India’s southern most states: Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Kerala. The soothing south is ancient temples, magnificent architecture, vast expanses of virgin beaches, a Kerala backwaters cruise, exotic cities and local festivals, a jungle nature reserve and this trip has it all! India deserves many trips this journey captures the essence of the beautiful south. We’ve combined the historical areas around Chennai and Madurai with Periyar and the seaside cities of Kerala for a truly extraordinary trip.
The timing of our tour is perfect. You’ll have the opportunity to witness and participate in the annual Pongal Festival. During this time, we’ll have the opportunity to meet the wonderful people of the South. They are beautiful, brilliant and well-educated.
This is the REAL Indiaa region of vast cultural wealth and lush beauty. The Dravidian culture flourished here for thousands of years. The colonial British, French and Portuguese added a European veneer. Our journey offers fascinating sights, scenery, and traditions colored by South India’s history and passed down through generations, and from time immemorial.
As an option you may continue to the Gateway of India. There’s time in Mumbai (Bombay) before flying home - or continuing to Sri Lanka as well.
So prepare to depart the commonplace. Join our small group of no more than fifteen. Open your mind and your heart to the mysteries of mystical South India!
