Active & Adventure
India and Sri Lanka are often overlooked for active and adventure holidays, but this region offers some of the most breathtaking and exhilarating experiences in mountain climbing, white water rafting and zip-lining. On two feet it can be as easy as a walk through one of India’s busy bazaars or as vigorous as a day’s hike in the foothills, or a two week high altitude trek in the Himalayas! If you really want to take it easy, enjoy a private helicopter ride that gets you close to Mt Everest or glide over the fabled Rajasthan desert, on a romantic hot air balloon ride. On two wheels, you could discover the best mountain biking in Nepal, or take in the sights of Sri Lanka’s ancient citadels, coastal towns and villages. For something a little more intense, a multi-day mountain motor bike trip through the jungles of Central India, the steep mountain trails of the Spiti Valley or through the deserts of Rajasthan and the mountain passes of Ladakh. Alternatively join a desert safari trail of Gujarat or the Thar Desert on camel or horseback, camping under the stars and experiencing authentic village hospitality and the true beauty of India’s rural heartland.
