We hit the ground running in the chaotic but richly rewarding capital city of Delhi in INDIA. We'll explore Agra before heading to NEPAL for a three week trek in the renowned Annapurna area before returning to the holiest city of Varanasi. From there, the journey goes west through a myriad of extraordinary places such as Khajuraho and Mandu. After a visit to the Buddhist rock caves of Ajanta and Ellora, we’ll arrive in Mumbai.

It’s off the tourist trail but there’s an excursion through Gujarat with the interesting hilltop temples of Palitana. The highlight of many trips to India is undoubtedly the colour and history of Rajasthan. It's here that we'll visit wonderful old forts, majestic palaces and experience the Thar Desert on a camel. Before leaving the north of India, we'll detour to Pushkar and explore the Pink and Blue Cities. Take a moment to catch your breath because we head south next.


Starting in Chennai, we'll do a loop around the south of India, finishing in Bangalore. It'll take us to amazing temples in places like Chidambaram and Thanjavur. There’s a visit to Kanyakumari on the southern tip of the country followed by an escape from the dusty road at the beach of Varkala. Cruising the serenely beautiful Kerala backwaters and walking the quiet streets of Fort Kochin are highlights of this itinerary. We'll then take the miniature railway to Ooty and travel on to Mysore with its stunning palace.

After a few days in Bangalore, the last part of this journey is in SRI LANKA. There'll be a misadventure or two in Colombo before heading to Kandy and other great places in the lush green Hill Country. I'll take you on my early morning ascent up Adam's Peak, through the pretty Nuwara Eliya and the tea plantations of Haputale. Hiking to the temples and waterfalls around Ella is also a wonderful experience. We'll then descend to the southern coast to explore the history of Galle and relax on a couple of lovely beaches on the western coastline.
