WILDLIFE
/VSPKH`PUNPU[OL^PSKZ¯
NHTL^H[JOYHW[\YL

Existing within a concrete jungle hardly ascertains the fact that


India has the second largest wildlife base in the world. Here in
the environs of the tropical forests of the Ghats, the Deccan
Peninsula, the Gangetic plain, the North Eastern Region and the
evergreen slopes of the Himalayas house an ample variety of
wild animals: tigers, snow leopards, elephants, antelopes, deer,
black bucks, bears, jackals, hyenas, wild buffalos etc.
Come and enjoy the cinematic exhibition during your sojourn in
the wilds. The highlights of these safaris are gripping jeep safaris,
treks, bird watching, wild life movies, photography workshops
and music renting the evening air around a bonfire.
You have our full support to shoot tiger at the well known
Manas, Ranthambore, Bandhavgarh and Kanha national parks,
the one-horned rhinocerous in the Kaziranga reserves or the
nearly extinct white lion at the Sasangir Sanctuary but through
the camera lens alone!

ADVENTURE
(K]LU[\YL:WSLUKPK¯
+HYL>P[O6\Y*HYL

For those who want to break free from their otherwise mundane
life routine, we offer a series of adventure holidays: short
weekend stimulation or longer period of adventurous activity.
The Himalayan ranges intimidate and enthrall you into a state
of stunned silence. These majestic mountains have quite a few
spectacular pursuits to offer an adventurer, be it mountaineering,
rock climbing, trekking or river rafting.
Breathe in nature in the raw on a camel safari or in a jungle.
Paragliding exudes an inexplicable sense of thrill for those who
reach out to experience new heights. Gliding down a ski slope,
water rafting down cascading streams pushes the adrenalin levels
of people who dare. Windsurfing, sailing, scuba diving bring in a
sense of fulfillment for water babies.
Holiday camps help you to connect and appreciate the bounty
of nature.
There is always something for everyone - those who dare, the
nature lovers, the scenic seekers and the bold adventurers.

In this land of temple spires, the devout and the connoisseur


of art both pay homage. There’s the Brahadeeswara Temple
at Tanjore constructed so that the shadow of its 81.3 ton
monolithic cupola never falls on the ground or the Meenakshi
temple at Madurai dedicated to the fish-eyed goddess. Choose
between the Nizam’s splendours of Hyderabad, the garden
city of Bangalore, sandalwood-scented Mysore or the spice and
surf of Kerala. Along the way drink in and absorb the stylized
elegance of Bharata Natyam, the story-telling art of Kathakali or
the martial-art grace of Kalaipattu. Lose yourself in the strange
and beautiful ruins at Hampi, inhale the scent of eucalyptus
from the Nilgiri hill-stations of Ootacamund or Kodaikanal.
Feast your eyes on Chinese fishing nets. Or catch a glimpse of
France in attractive Pondicherry. Finally join the procession of
gloriously bedecked elephants or celebrate the sun set and moon
