Head into a world of red-robed monks, snowy peaks and rainbow prayer flags. India’s north west is peppered with peaceful Tibetan communities and hilltop towns strung along dramatic ridges and toy trains snaking through the green hills.
North India is bursting with spirit and history, from chaotic spice-infused markets to golden desert forts, sacred ghats, shimmering saris and floating lake palaces. Sleep in real Rajasthani palaces, search for wild tigers and visit beautiful merchant houses in the dust-swirled desert.
Take scenic toy trains, meet gentle monks, search for rare one-horned rhinos and amble through tea plantations in India’s mystical, mountainous north east. A gorgeous Shangri-La of flower-filled meadows, rushing rivers, fruit orchards and pine forests, it’s a beautiful region to explore.
Packed with spirit and tinged with tropical magic, there’s nowhere quite like southern India. Track wild elephant in a jungle wilderness, sleep aboard a traditional wooden houseboat, discover a Portuguese pocket of paradise and amble between the rainbow-coloured temples of Tamil Nadu.
