The focus of Dravidian culture for centuries and home to some 25% of the country’s total population of tigers, South India presents visitors with a stunning diversity of cultural and natural highlights. This spectacular journey into the rich landscapes of the Western Ghats provides a seemingly endless array of temples and national parks,as you travel from the palaces of Mysore to the breathless majesty of Periyar National Park.
The adventure begins amongst the elegant reminders of the once princely state of Mysore, where you’ll have a chance to visit the city’s stunning palace and the towering Sri Chamundeswari Temple, before continuing on to the Nagarhole National Park. A chance for game drives in the ‘Project Tiger’ reserves of Nagarhole and Bandipur is then followed by a ride through the beautiful plantations of the Western Ghats aboard the famed Nilgiri Mountain Railway.
Moving on through Annamalai and Coimbatore, you then reach Thekkady, home to the famous wildlife rich lands of the Periyar National Park. Here you will enjoy guided walks with knowledgeable ex-poachers who have turned their expertise to the protection of the animals that they once hunted.
