Nomadic Expeditions

INDIA - Open for Travel

Subcontinent
of Splendor

The breadth and depth of India cannot be overstated. Connecting neighbors to the west with Southeast Asia, sprawling from the Himalaya in the north to balmy southern beaches, and bordered by seas that have long served trade vital to the entire world—India is an immense republic of dramatically diverse states, peoples, and cultures.

Its earliest inhabitants trace back some 80,000 years, with the monumental Indus Valley Civilization as the first urban culture of South Asia, flourishing around 2500 BC, the same timeframe as ancient Egypt’s prominence. A great many empires have ruled in India before and since, leaving their imprint on the land, most notably in the array of astonishing temples you will find today in the capitals of long ago.

Truly a cradle of civilization, this land has given rise to a multitude of religions—from the foundations of Hindu theology and philosophy, to principles and practices such as Dharma and Yoga—as well as scores of languages and dialects, of which 22 are officially recognized in their Constitution.

Shielded from the freezing katabatic winds of Central Asia by the Himalaya range, India enjoys a temperate winter and presents an array of distinct climate zones—ranging from alpine mountain to the tropical southwest, to the arid Thar Desert, to the subtropical east.

As do India’s seasonal monsoons soak the land and restore its lush fertility, so does the lavish countryside teem with wildlife. Safaris can bring you face to face with such splendid creatures as the Royal Bengal Tiger, the Indian Rhino, and the Indian Elephant.

Providing you with decades of expertise, Nomadic Expeditions brings you inside this myriad of cultural experiences. Named Conde Nast Traveler’s “India and Himalaya Specialist” for over a decade, our Director of Operations Sanjay Saxena has been a professional guide since 1979 and led numerous journeys through his home country of India, as well as Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and many more. Guided by the foremost experts on India, your tour will be a seamless adventure of mesmerizing discovery.

Thrill in trekking the Indian Himalaya to panoramic vantages of Annapurna and Kanchenjunga. Explore ancient forts, remote monasteries, pastel palaces, and intricately carved temples. Exalt in the sun setting against the white marble Taj Mahal. Sip fresh tea at the hilltop estates of Darjeeling. Tour the cinematic bazaars of “Old Delhi.” Stroll serene beaches along the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Witness the supremely vibrant celebrations of the sprawling Pushkar and Nagaur Camel Fairs, and the riotously joyous Holiis “festival of color.”

Immerse in this realm of extraordinary charm and vitality.

FEATURED JOURNEY

India’s jewels are the parks, palaces, temples, bazaars and, of course, the wild animals which define her exotic past. On this wildlife focused tour we visit Bandavgarh and Kanha National Parks, the two best wildlife sanctuaries in India that house the Royal Bengal Tiger. Both of these parks were inspiration for Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Books, and all of the animals described in the books are to be found here.
