India
The India subcontinent is a land of many contrasts. Few countries on Earth offer the enormous variety of India. It is difficult to define the essence of this diverse land which offers an eclectic mix: from the frantic modern cities to tranquil temples, sprawling national parks, home to amazing array of wildlife, centuries old religions, culture and traditions. All this comes in a dazzling symphony of sights, sounds, tastes and smells. 

We explore this vast, fascinating land in a voyage of discovery with sightseeing, walks and a diversity of countryside, culture and experiences and of course, meet India's welcoming people.

This walking holiday introduces a magnificent high mountain region with stunning views, new experiences and different cultures.
