Nagaland is one of the least explored regions of India.
In terms of cultural significance, few places left on the planet match this region of India. It’s rustic and raw, and English is rarely spoken. At the Hornbill Festival in India’s remote Northeast, sixteen local tribes converge to showcase their culture and traditions. The festival is a significant event in the calendar, and its purpose is to preserve, protect, and sustain the rich cultural heritage and diversity of the Naga Tribes. The colours, sounds, music and dance, the region’s natural beauty and the food will amaze you. On this tour, you will also see much of the surrounding countryside, villages, towns and cities. You will be welcomed by and interact with people who have had limited contact with Europeans.
Orissa's region is one of India's most beautiful states to explore. It has a distinctive cultural heritage and is known for its architectural marvels and its unique art. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sun Temple at Konark is one of the most impressive man-made monuments anywhere in the world. This medieval temple is breathtaking, with its exquisitely preserved sculpture, including some eyebrow-raising erotica. The ancient rock-cut caves and ornate temples of Bhubaneswar, the state capital, hark back to an era when the kingdom stretched from the Ganges delta to the mouth of the River Godavari. The Jagannath Temple at Puri is the site for one of the world’s most spectacular devotional processions. Puri’s golden beaches are also known for their sand art, which can only be found here. At Raghurajpur village, we will discover Patachitra, a local art of painting stories from mythology - large scrolls used to adorn the walls of palatial homes. On this trip, we will also spend two nights at Rajbari on the outskirts of Kolkata. Rajbari is a traditional Bengali Zamindari home. The Zamindars were feudal lords who commanded large tracts of land and built stately homes in the villages. The Rajbari is one such palace that has been renovated and restored into a beautiful heritage hotel.
