The Indian subcontinent incorporates everything from the soaring snow-capped Himalayan mountain range down to the low lying Maldivian islands and so much more in between. This is a region of inspiring contrasts home to over 2000 ethnic groups and each one humbler than the next.
The star of the show is India for its playground of contrasting landscapes, energetic cities, swirling colours and majestic palaces. A stone’s throw away lies the enchanting spiritual Bhutan, barely trodden Nepali trekking routes, the serendipitous tear-drop island of Sri Lanka and a picture-perfect Maldivian paradise.
Still untouched, now is most definitely the time to discover this unspoilt mysterious Kingdom, the ‘Land of the Thunder Dragon’. We can arrange your visit to coincide with one of the Bhutanese Festivals to see the swirling colours, musical performances and masked dancers enjoying a magical simplicity.
Experience the quintessential India in Rajasthan with vivid colours, intense smells, and opulent palaces. We can arrange for you to take tea with Maharajas or attend an opium ceremony in rather less regal company. Follow the British Raj to Calcutta, Delhi, and Bombay with one of our architectural experts or personal shoppers. Alternatively go in search of the elusive tiger in Madhya Pradesh or venture off the beaten track towards the mighty Himalaya or into the depths of the countryside.
Discover some of the most idyllic white sand beaches in the world surrounded by turquoise lagoons, and, home to incredible marine life. With over 100 hotels to choose from we can advise the right island for honeymooners or families, couples or single travellers, sun worshippers or water babies, foodies, or spa junkies.
Nepal possesses 8 of the 10 highest mountains in the world which we can navigate with experienced guides and sherpas, whilst staying in remote mountain lodges or under canvas. Witness Everest and the Annapurna range from dizzying heights by helicopter, microlight or plane and we have some unique safari experiences at our fingertips,as well.
Also known as the ‘island of serendipity’, Sri Lanka is a tapestry of contrasts offering a gentle introduction to Asia. We have experts in botany, photography and art in the cultural triangle, leopard trackers in the National Parks, resident tea planters in the hill country and food connoisseurs scattered all over the country to bring the old Ceylon to life.
