HIGHLIGHTS
  • Explore seaside Mamallapuram on a bicycle tour, pedalling to the eightcentury Shore Temple and incredible seventhcentury stone carving known as Arjuna’s Penance.
  • Carve through the iridescent hills of Ootacamund (Ooty) on the vintage Nilgiri Mountain Railway, then visit a lush tea plantation.
  • Spot tigers, elephants, sloths and birds on safaris and nature walks in three of India’s wildlife viewing hotspots – Mudumalai, Periyar and Ranthambhore national parks.
  • Cruise the winding backwaters of Kerala and further immerse yourself in life on the water with an island homestay in this idyllic region.
The India South & North tour starts from Kochi and ends in New Delhi. It is an active and outdoor trip that takes 29 days taking you through Agra, Mysore, Ootacamund and 21 other destinations in India. India South & North is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This extensive 29-day adventure through India takes you from bottom to top, revealing the icons and local secrets of this diverse country. Revel in the tropical climate, warm waters and lush green landscapes of the south in places like Kochi, Puducherry and Madurai. Then be dazzled by kaleidoscopic colours, Mughal grandeur and the overt spirituality of the north in Jaipur and Agra. Travel from Kochi to Delhi and combine the slower delights of Kerala and Tamil Nadu with the rush and jumble of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan on our longest Original-style India tour.

“First solo trip for me, but the tour group staff (and guests for that matter) were excellent - the travelling times whilst long, were well worth it - our Intrepid guide Tshepo and driver Cosmas made the trip effortless with good organisation, clear communication and always timely starts/finishes - the information provided at each location, picture opportunities given, fun activities, good food and basically everything else, made this my favourite trip to date - will defo be doing another Africa tour with Intrepid.”
