Southern India is a very different world from the North, and this trip features the best of this greener, gentler India. You'll be welcomed into the country by the Gateway of India in Mumbai. Visit the gardens at the Lal Bagh in Bangalore, then travel to Belur and see the Channekshava Temple, which took almost a century to complete. One of the largest solid rock carvings in India, the Nandi Bull, awaits you in Mysore. When you arrive in Cochin, you’ll board a houseboat and drift peacefully past palm-lined shores, spending the night on the water and arriving at Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary the next day. Look for wild elephants, leopards, deer, and elusive tigers. You’ll also visit the ancient temples dedicated to Lord Ganapati in Trichy, the Sri Aurobindo Ahsram in Pondicherry, and the spectacular temples of Mahabalipuram. The picturesque villages, gracious people, and beautiful countryside of South India await you on this serene and insightful guided adventure.
