On this trip we focus on the day-to-day beauty of rural India and its people. At Wild Frontiers we believe it is more rewarding to visit the villages of India, experience the pace of life and culture of the locals and witness first-hand the life that the majority of Indians live, away from the regular cities on the tourist trail.
In central India on this unique tour you will experience a combination of village life, wonderful mountain scenery, the tranquil world along India’s holy riverbank and the hustle bustle of some of her most vibrant city centres. From Delhi to Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), via the Himalayas and the Ganges, this is a wonderful trip that will stay with you for a very long time.
ALL OUR SMALL GROUP TOURS HAVE NO LOCAL PAYMENTS, HIDDEN EXTRAS OR COMPULSORY SINGLE SUPPLEMENTS.
Tours that fall into this category are likely to involve at least a few challenging days and are often in destinations where tourism is still in its infancy.
You can typically expect a mixture of accommodation with some nights being spent in comfortable and characterful places, and some in more basic places, homestays or camping, especially where choices are limited.
These tours will typically involve a couple of days of easy/moderate trekking (3-5 hrs/day) or perhaps a more active approach to a cultural itinerary. For riding trips see the Riding Information section
With this rating, you can typically expect a tour with a strong focus on culture. Depending on the trip this could involve exploring ancient sites, medieval architecture, ethnographic museums and/or having tribal encounters.
