Kerala – An Experience In God’s Own Country

Kerala is a treasure trove of experiential splendor and natural wonders. The western coastline along the Arabian Sea is high on beauty, beaches and culture with a historic past of spice trade on the Malabar Coast. The Western Ghat Mountains in the east, one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots, are alive with rich flora and fauna, and dotted with lush plantations and quaint hill towns. Surrounded by pristine stretches of backwaters with thriving local culture, it’s hard not to see why Kerala is God’s Own Country.
Thanks to such diversity, experiential travel is the way to go here. Watch the sun set through fishing nets, traverse the evergreen Ghats, or kayak along the backwaters. Spot elephants while bamboo rafting, mingle with locals at homestay, or discover exotic food. Immerse in an Ayurvedic massage, or just laze on quiet beaches. Kerala truly is a refreshing escape, revealing the most authentic, eco-friendly and sustainable side of India.

Ladakh

Ladakh Experience (Women only)

8 Days

On request

So many experiences. So many stories to tell. That’s what Ladakh is. The land of high passes is blessed with natural beauty any other place in the world would envy. In ancient times it was an important outpost in the important silk route trade. Much of that richness esp. in culture and heritage is still very much reflective in the present day Ladakh.
Not much else needs to be said about Ladakh. A surreal landscape vastly different from anything imaginable. Though so much has been talked and written about it that most people have an idea of the place, yet nothing can prepare you for what to expect the moment the door of the aircraft opens and this land opens its arms to you.
