Unseen world on the east and west cost of south India.


Your interests and experiences of travelling in Asia will get an inspiring start at southern India. Destinations like Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, and Pondicherry embed in it with attractive life among the lush green hills and valleys - peppered with the ruined cities of long-vanished medieval empires - is altogether slower and less crowded.

Start with Kerala-a green land of rice paddies, coconut groves and hills thickly cloaked in indigenous forest as well as spices, tea and coffee plantations. It is a softer introduction to India, with smaller, more ordered cities, a slower pace of life and a cleaner environment.

Proceed to Tamil Nadu-it is an amazing world from tall temple towers to serene beaches on the south east of India.

Continue to Karnataka-be it heritage, nature, wildlife, beaches or culture, there is something for everyone in Karnataka.

A most memorable holiday at value for money price is tailored to suit your and your companions.
