Historical Treasures of South India (15 days)

South India’s past is a litany of empires, dynasties, triumphs, conquests, with astonishing achievements in culture, language, and architecture. Although now modernising fast, like the rest of India, the area is positively littered with great historical marvels, all of which can be unravelled with a healthy dose typical South Indian storytelling. This itinerary takes place entirely overland and largely way off-the-beaten-path: stringing together a line of treasures from Hyderabad through to Hampi, via Bidar, Gulbarga, Bijapur, Badami, Aihole & Pattadakal. From Hampi you push on overland, taking an express train down to the coast to round out with three nights’ well-earned r&r in Goa. The mid-section of this trip sees a few nights in ‘best available’ accommodation – all functional & mid-range, but comfortable enough – with a greater selection of properties on offer in the three key destinations: Hyderabad, Hampi, and Goa.
