Mountainous northern states, arid desert central states and lush tropical southern region

Vastly variable. From cold altitudes in the north, high temperatures in the central states to humid tropics in the south

Explore India

Prepare for a whirlwind. Head to the Himalayas for trekking, prayer flags and altitude, head south for tea plantations, beaches and houseboats. But make sure you dive into the golden triangle head first. It’s not a full Indian experience unless you surrender to the immense contrasts of this vast country. Sounds, smells, color. Vast mountain ranges, glaciers and lakes, sweeping deserts, colonial architecture, tea plantations, lush waterways and palm fringed tropics. Build your own itinerary through this epic country with so much to choose from, you’ll be back more than once.

Enjoy a cup of chai tea, spend time with a Buddhist monk, reach that high altitude pass, watch the world go by in the backwaters, jump in a tuk tuk. Speed up, slow down. Energize, relax. Get ready for the ride.

Build your adventure

Hike the Himalayas

Snow-capped peaks, high passes and mountain trails lead you through the stunning landscape of the Himalayas in Northern India. Whether it’s 5 or 15 days, choose between Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand or Ladakh and your trekking is bound to be breathtaking for all the right reasons.

Slow it down in the south

Palm trees frame the canals of Kerala’s backwaters. Watch the world drift by on board a traditional houseboat or paddle past daily life in a kayak. Stop for a fresh coconut, watch women washing clothes in the canals, listen to the sound of India at its calmest.

Visit monks at a monastery

Steeped in Buddhist culture, everywhere in Ladakh welcomes you with prayer flags. Monks and monasteries abound, with bright white stupas peppering the skyline. Visit monasteries nestled in mountainsides and if your lucks in, you’ll catch the Dalai Lama on a retreat near Leh.

Support women’s empowerment

Collaborate with the Sambali Trust to support the empowerment of women in rural communities through the development of safe community spaces, access to vocational training and micro-financing schemes. Learn about the caste system and powerful movements for change.
