Reference number: HHSS

From: £905.00

Lush and tropical, southern India is inspiring and delightful. Beneath the green shade of a coastal paradise, meet with locals in their fishing villages and tribal homes. Join them in the bazaars, on buses and boats or even on pilgrimage in Madurai. From iconic cultural sights like the Maharaja's Palace in Mysore to French-infused Pondicherry and the vast landscape of Periyar - southern India's spirituality, friendly people and wild animal sanctuaries make it a fascinating part of the country to explore. TRIP UPDATES: Heavy monsoon rains in southern India during August have resulted in severe flooding and devastation across the state of Kerala. An estimated 400 people have died and more than 1 million people have been displaced. Due to the ongoing safety risks of travelling in the region, we are unable to visit Kochi, Periyar, Munnar, Alleppey, Kumarakom and Trivandrum until further notice. The following departures will be running on an alternate itinerary: 14th September - HHSS180914 21st September - HHSS180921 Affected travellers should contact their booking agents for more information. Highlights/r/n
  • Discover the waterfalls, tea plantations and spice markets of South India’s Western Ghats, a jungle-clad mountain range older than the Himalaya and one of the most biodiverse regions in the world.
