Travel to India & the Himalayas
Experience Timeless Beauty and Mesmerizing Cultures
India is larger than life: a population that exceeds a billion, 23 official languages and more than a million square miles of land. But one common thread runs through it - India floods your senses from every direction.
In this country of filigreed cities and ancient palaces A&K shows you customs going back millennia and sites that inspire awe. In Varanas, India's holiest city, stand beside the Ganges River at dusk and listen to rhythmic drumming as lantern-bearing priests bid the gods and goddesses a restful slumber. In Khajuraho, see all of life - joy, love, divinity, war - depicted in detail on every inch of its 85 Hindu and Jain temples. In Panna, take a private game drive in search of the graceful, elusive Bengal tiger and see nine UNESCO World heritage sites along the way.
And you see this fascinating land from a rickshaw through stalls of Chandni Chowk bazaar, on elephantback in the calm Jaipur countryside, a private sunset cruise on the Ganges River or a luxury train that invokes the romance of days gone by.
With superb local guides and incomparable service, A&K takes you on a voyage of discovery through this unforgettable land. Join one of our small group journeys or create your own tailor made journey of a lifetime.
