South India Exploration
This trip is truly one of a kind – a unique way to see the architectural treasures of South India and experience the people and their festivals. Here you can see some of the finest temples in all of India –Somnathpur, Hampi, Aihole, Badami – the embodiment of the southern Dravidian culture and sites that will leave you awestruck. But temples are not all! You can explore Hyderabad, take a houseboat through the backwaters of Kerala, wander Cochin, smell the incense of Mysore and end your journey sunbathing on the beach in Goa.
In the spring, if all works well, you will be in Badami for the Pattadakal Dance Festival; and, in the fall, you will be in Mysore for Dushhera.
