Experience the wonder of a holiday tailored completely around you in India, Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Borneo and the Maldives.
Confronted with such an array of choices even the most independent of travellers needs a helping hand, a word of advice, a pointer in the right direction. Especially if you wish to wander off the well-trodden trail. This is what Indian Explorations specialises in. Bespoke holidays to India, tailor-made to your specific requirements.
India offers such great diversity, from the extravagant, rich palaces of Rajasthan, to the wildlife rich regions of Corbett and Madhya Pradesh, to the gentle solitude of the Himalayas, where one can explore this region on foot, perhaps staying in village houses en route. Then we have the heady tropical region of Kerala, with its small, colonial houses, beaches and backwaters where one can languish dreamily on a houseboat, absorbing the atmosphere of this exquisite area. There is also camel trekking into the desert and horse riding in Rajasthan and Assam too.
The mountain rim to the north cradles Nepal, home to some of the warmest and friendliest people on earth and the superb national parks of the lowlands famous for rhinos and tigers that are sometimes spotted against the backdrop of some of the highest mountains in the world.
To the east lies Bhutan – a Buddhist stronghold perched on the precipitous mountains at the edge of Tibet. It is a land of incredible beauty and tranquility; its landscapes dominated by some of the most captivating architecture in the subcontinent; its natural landscapes clothed in primeval forests largely untouched by a tiny human population and alive with a gorgeous diversity of wildlife.
Far to the south, just off the southern tip of India is Sri Lanka – Serendip of the Arabs. With its lush tea covered mountains, wildlife parks, ancient cities including the forbidding eyrie of Sigiriya fort and a gloriously tropical coastline abounding in some of the most stylish small boutique hotels in Asia, Sri Lanka is a dream destination for surprisingly affordable holidays.
Finally, at the very edge of the subcontinent is the vast collection of atolls strewn astride the Equator that comprise the Republic of the Maldives. Just the name conjures up images of almost sybaritic luxury amidst limpid seascapes. The Maldives boast some of the finest and most exclusive island resorts in the world each occupying an atoll on its own, splendidly and idyllically isolated from the rest of humanity.
The subcontinent offers an incredible wealth of experiences for the discerning traveler no matter what your interest and our expertly crafted bespoke itineraries cater to the individual looking for local, expert knowldedge that makes travel special.
