Private Journey



days from


India will stir your soul, it challenges your conceptions, it changes you. It is a spectacular mix of people, traditions and landscapes. Temples, shrines and fortresses are everywhere, reminders of an ancient history and spirituality. Yet much of the south of India is different - gone are the deserts of the north, replaced by lush farm fields, mountains and forests. The region seems quieter too, more inward looking and serene. This is a journey through this the south of fascinating country. We will take you from Chennai to the temples of Tamil Nadu, to the forests of Periyar and the colonial town of Kochi. This is a journey you will remember long after you've left India's shores.
