Welcome to
India

This is a land of diversity, a vast country harbouring an immense variety of scenery that ranges from the palm-edged beaches of the tropical south to the snows of the mighty Himalayas.  In between there are jungles and forests, lush river valleys and barren deserts, busy modern cities and quiet villages to explore and provide an endless series of surprises and pleasures.  With a recorded history of more than 4000 years of empires that have risen and fallen, religions that has taken root and flourished, a succession of foreign invasions and conquests of trade, India has always been an irresistible magnet.

From the grandeur of the Taj Mahal and the Golden Triangle in the north to the tropical rainforests and virgin beaches of Kerala in the south, the sun-kissed shores of Goa and the deserts of Rajasthan, witness the heritage and culture of a glorious past, amidst the pace and vitality of a modern and exciting present. Go on an elephant safari looking for tigers in one of the national parks, shops for fine handicrafts, honed over centuries of dedicated craftmanship. Delight in the dramatic scenery, pristine beaches and varied flora and fauna. India is an amazing experience for the traveller and has something for everyone.

Kerala
KerelaKerala is on the southwest coast, sandwiched between Lakshadweep Sea and WesternKerala Ghats. Its long shoreline with serene beaches, tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters, lush hill stations, exotic wildlife, waterfalls, plantations and paddy field make it arguably the most beautiful state in India. Ayurveda, an ancient school of medicine, has been mastered here and Ayurveda health holidays, magical festivals, historic and cultural monuments, an exotic cuisine and the wonderful scenery, all make this a great destination.

GoaGoa
Goa beach A former Portuguese colony, Goa is relaxed and different from other parts of India. Its heritage can be seen in Iberian façades, white-shaded churches and sunny piazzas covered with bourganvilla. These together with miles of silver palmed-fringed beaches lapped gently by the Arabian Sea, combine to make Goa irrestible.
