Experience Timeless Beauty and Mesmerizing Cultures
India is larger than life: a population that exceeds a billion, 23 official languages and more than a million square miles of land. But one common thread runs through it – India floods your senses from every direction.
The seventh biggest country in the world and the second most populous, India can sometimes feel more like a continent than a country. From the snow-capped Himalayas in the far north to the lush waters of the south, this is a place where landscapes and cultures change in the blink of an eye. India is at once chaotic and noisy, peaceful and calm and it is this diversity that makes it such a fascinating and compelling destination.
In this country of filigreed cities and opulent palaces we show you customs going back millennia and sites that inspire awe. In Varanasi, India’s holiest city, stand beside the Ganges River at dusk and listen to rhythmic drumming as lantern-bearing priests bid the gods and goddesses a restful slumber. In Khajuraho, see all of life — joy, love, divinity, war — depicted in detail on every inch of its 85 Hindu and Jain temples. In Panna, take a private game drive in search of the graceful, elusive Bengal tiger and see nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites along the way.
Travel back in time to one of the oldest civilizations on Earth on your customized guided tour of India. The possibilities for intoxicating experiences are so diverse that only with the care of a private guide and an expertly tailored itinerary can you truly experience India’s treasures. Set out at daybreak with your guide to watch the sun rise over the Taj Mahal, the ultimate monument to love. Savor a spicy blend of hot Chai in an Indian tea room or explore the colorful bazaars and markets.
And then there’s the wildlife. India is a real-life Jungle Book, home to tigers, leopards and elephants. Ranthambore, Bandhavgarh and Kanha are home to some of the country’s highest tiger populations while the luxurious and remote JAWAI camp is the best place to catch a glimpse of the beautiful and elusive leopard.
There are few places on earth like India. A whirlwind of colours, sounds and smells, its energy is undeniably contagious and the best way to appreciate this rich and unique country is to throw yourself head first into its way of life.
