India is home to nearly 1.3 billion people, the second largest on Earth, and the seventh largest in terms of area. Its landscape is beautiful and varied, from the western camel routes, dusty and desolate, to the massive Himalaya Mountains in the north, the lush, tropical forests deep in India’s south, and its eastern spiritual rivers, of which the Ganges is the most well known. Our India tours explore this complex, colourful and energetic country.
