India
Holidays and Tours

The vast country of India is impossible to put into a few short sentences – an overpowering country that enchants and engulfs all who visit. Undiscovered Destinations offer diverse small group adventures and tailor-made tours across the many different regions of this vast land.

Whether your interests are wildlife, cultural, historical or a combination of all of these, then India will have something to satisfy your travel bug. Our travel experts have designed these tours of India to show you the very best of the country.

Come with Undiscovered Destinations as we go looking for tigers in Ranthambore National Park or join our groups crossing the high mountain passes and exploring the remote villages close to the border with Pakistan in the magical region of Ladakh.

Although certain areas are very much on the well trodden tourist trail, we will help you find a part of India that is truly undiscovered.

From little visited Nagaland in the North-West to searching for some of the country’s most enigmatic wildlife including the iconic Tiger in the reserves of Central India and also the only remaining lions to be found outside of Africa in Gujarat. Marvel at iconic structures such as the Taj Mahal and other intricate palaces and temples.

Explore small villages and observe a slower pace of life, meet remote ethnic groups and observe age old customs and traditions. Our tours of India have something for lovers of culture, history and wildlife.

India is an assault on the senses and an experience not to be missed.

Why visit India?

It’s impossible to condense India into a single trip. However, while erring away from honeypot tourist destinations and focusing on wilder regions, these tours combine elements of the sub-continent that emphasise the true diversity of experience on offer. From the country’s capital, to some of its best national parks, searching out Royal Bengal tigers, endangered Asiatic wild ass, and colourful birdlife, there’s a lot to see.

Elsewhere, follow the Jain pilgrimage trail to the world’s largest temple complex and indulge in the fantasy of Indian royalty while staying at a maharajah’s palace.

Undiscovered Destinations tours in India don’t claim to ‘do’ India. Anyone with any experience of travelling in this vast and contrary country would tell you that that is impossible. By concentrating on specific regions and offering a more off the beaten track itinerary, our tours of India aim to give you a glimpse of what is possible.

If there is just one place to visit on your first visit  to India, then we would suggest Bandhavgarh National Park. As is often the case in India, the origin of the national park has a darker past; it was a popular tiger hunting area for the local maharajas of Rewa, and this continued well into the 20th century.  However, as the largely forested areas in northern India, perfect for the big cats’, were progressively felled and shooting of tigers for trophies continued, it became apparent that the Bengal tiger’s very existence was in doubt. This story has a relatively happy ending though as the maharajah donated the parkland to the state as a nature reserve and since then a healthy population of big cats has been nurtured.

Once you have travelled to India you will soon discover that you want to return. Any one of Undiscovered Destinations small group tours or tailor-made holidays more than delivers an incredible Indian experience.
