SKU: 3115245403



Southern India is less visited than the famed cultural cities of the north, but those who choose to travel here are rewarded with lush green landscapes, exotic spice plantations, ancient pilgrimage centres, scenic national parks and a fascinating blend of age-old dynasties and more recent colonial history. Starting in Chennai, the commercial hub at the height of the British Empire – the majesty of southern India awaits you. Three nights in the old port city of Cochin provides ample time to see the famed Chinese fishing nets, and in Alleppey you will experience the serene beauty of the maze of backwaters with a cruise on a traditional houseboat. Travel onwards to Ooty, nestled in the Nilgiri Mountains surrounded by tea gardens and dense forest, and conclude in Mysore, the grand city of palaces.
