Holidays to the subcontinent have been a great passion at the Explorations Company for many years. It is so diverse geographically and culturally that no two trips can ever be the same. One thing is certain, though, that from the Himalayan foothills to the pristine backwaters of Kerala, the natural beauty of its landscape is unrivalled.
The much smaller island of Sri Lanka offers an equally diverse landscape to discover, with incredible cultural sites not be missed. So you can either spend three weeks delighting in the rich and varied textiles from the deserts of western India to the mountains of Nepal and Bhutan or perhaps more enjoyably, throw in a bit of wildlife, culture and relaxation. There are few other regions that can offer such superlative options.
If you do have a particular interest in say, textiles or miniature paintings or Deccan architecture, classical dance, tribal music or any other special area; or you are someone who likes to probe deeper into the culture and history of the area you are in, tarry longer at special places, wander on foot into areas that most tourists or even locals have never heard of; visit the ateliers of craftsmen and artists; take a by-road to visit a school of dance or a community of Sanskrit scholars – for that level of interest we design the itineraries differently, engage specialist guides and arrange meetings with scholars or experts.
While this is all often easier for groups, if you are an individual traveler let us know your area of interest, check out the possibilities below and give us a call.
‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
