Starting in Chennai and ending in Kolkata, the trip Wilds Of Orissa & Kolkata is a guided overland journeys tour that takes 14 days. You will travel through Visakhapatnam, Puri, Tirupati and 4 other destinations in India. Wilds Of Orissa & Kolkata is a group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This trip if for travellers who are after a different India than that purely represented by the Taj. This is the India of rural Odissa and the indigenous aboriginal tribal peoples of the Eastern Ghats, of local markets and small tribal villages. This is the India of Kolkata, a wild and chaotic India with so much atmosphere and zest for life. This is the India of holy pilgrimages, temples and off the beaten track UNESCO heritage sites, such as the Konark Sun Temple in Puri.

This is the side of India that few western tourists bother with, but which has so much colour and culture, that we believe it is a really crucial part of India to see, to balance the stereotypes of the Taj and the Moghul splendours.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
