Alex, Shanti Travel Founder

I have spent many years in India and every day I find something new to love. From the majestic Indian Himalayas, through to the diversity of the North, to the beauty and charm of the South, this country is a microcosm of the world.

India is home to over a billion people, more than 30 sub-regions, hundreds of languages, cultures, gods and cuisines, making it a prime destination for all kinds of travellers. The lunar landscapes, Buddhist tranquillity and crystal lakes of Ladakh make it one of my favourite places. A trek through the snow deserts will enthral even a seasoned traveller. Rajasthan in North India is worthy of its name. Translated as “Land of the Maharajahs”, this state is dotted with royal palaces, imposing forts, and ancient relics, all against the backdrop of the undulating dunes of the Great Indian Desert. Kerala, with its tranquil backwaters, lush tea gardens, exotic beaches and ancient Ayurveda, is truly the jewel in the South Indian crown. Contact us today to begin planning your holiday to India.

Travel to India with a specialized travel agency

Holidays to India are an unforgettable and rewarding experience, especially for those who wish to seek something different from their daily humdrum. A lifetime of holidays to India would not be enough to unravel and understand the country in its entirety and diversity.

Trekking in the Indian Himalayas

Do you love trips in the great outdoors or are you enthusiastic about Buddhism? Well look no further than the Indian Himalayas, the northernmost part of the country. The trekking routes and mountain trails in this region provide travellers with a truly magnificent platform to view the majestic peaks of the Himalayas and experience authentic encounters that leave an indelible mark. The summer season from May to September is the perfect time to visit Ladakh and the other Himalayan destinations.

Holidays to North India

Tours to North India will enthral travellers seeking cultural discovery among the remnants of historical civilizations. Sages & Yoga ashrams in the Himalayan foothills of Rishikesh, princely palaces and ancient forts of the Rajputs in Rajasthan, colonial heritage of Calcutta, erotic stone temples of Khajuraho… Travelling to North India is the perfect introduction to a huge part of the Indian culture. Curious travellers who wish to venture off the beaten track can visit lesser known but equally enchanting destinations such as the salt desert of Gujarat or the ethnic tribal communities of the Far East. The best time to visit North India is from October to April.

Trips to South India

Do you want to travel to India in search of lush greenery and a gentler way of life? Southern India is the perfect destination for you. Deemed to be "softer" than its Northern counterpart, this region offers the beauty of its beaches (Goa, Kerala, and Andaman Islands), extraordinary mountains of Western Ghats and intricate heritage temples. On your trips from Mumbai to the Andaman Islands, experience mouth-watering coastal food, smiling locals, exuberant nature and the relaxing pleasures of Ayurveda. To thoroughly enjoy the South, it is best visited in the mild temperatures of winter, from November to March.
