The pace of life in Southern and Eastern India is very different from the frenetic hustle and bustle of the north.  As it is too hot and humid to move really quickly; perhaps the calm of the greens and ambers of everyday life, just leads folk to slow down. The south is about beautiful food, relaxation, beaches and rural life. Kerala is becoming a world famous region to visit and not just for its stunning beaches, but also for its culture and the beautiful inland waterways. Lesser known wonders such as Hampi or the garden city of Mysore are just as inspiring as the Taj, and drifting along the backwaters in a converted houseboat is just about as good as it can get in India.  But the eastern seaboard has some stuff that is seldom even heard about, but we know that after five days exploring the tribal lands of Odisha you will think about India in an entirely different way.  Throw in the explosion of chaos and noise in Kolkata and you have a trip that you will never forget
  • Explore chaotic and fascinating Mumbai
  • Relax on a fascinating train ride to the coast of Goa
  • Discover the lost kingdom of Vijayanagar in the magnificent ruined city of Hampi
  • Explore the amazing Maharaja's Palace of Mysore
  • Relax at the community guesthouse in the hills of Wayanad
  • Explore Kochi including a local boat trip to Fort Cochin
  • Overnight by local boat through the backwaters and villages of Kerala
  • Visit the southern tip of India at Cape Comorin - Kanyakumari
  • Stay in the French influenced enclave of Pondicherry
  • Visit to the Shore Temples & Pagodas of Mahabalipuram
  • This is off the beaten track India combined with trains, road journeys, boats and beaches. It is a relaxed, easily paced trip staying in small hotels and hostels. It is an ideal trip for those who may have already visited northern India and want to see more.
