So continuing the tele-visual feast theme, travel mole stumbled upon “Paul Merton in India” last night, and what an entertaining take and unique insight into India this was!
Here at Imaginative Traveller we may not take you onto a stationary plane for your dinner; or to the festival celebrating the god Shiva where Paul watched naked, ash-covered sadhus suspend boulders from their penises; or see the monkey’s as they are employed as “civil servants” chasing smaller monkeys out of the town!
BUT YOU WILL ...
... definitely see some magnificently colourful festivals (naked men are dependent on the festival!); definitely interact with a lot of monkeys; and who really wants to be on a plane for any longer than necessary?!
Imaginative Traveller certainly aims to take you off the beaten track and see parts of India which many of the usual tour experiences choose to miss off the itinerary. Of course you’ll see the magnificent Taj Mahal and the important religious site of Varanasi, but we also try to add in some hidden extra’s.
If you travel on the newly launched “Sameers Rajasthan” you will be sure to meet his wonderful family who will take you into his home and cook dinner for you as a part of the family.
Or you may really want to travel into the depths of Northern India in our NEW tour “Frontiers of India”. This is a fascinating tour to one of the lesser known parts of India, the remote north-eastern states of Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland. From the tea plantations in the far east of Assam to the tribal villages of northern Nagaland, from the wildlife-rich Kaziranga National Park to the beautiful hills of Meghalaya, this is a true journey into hidden India.
Or perhaps you have always wanted to see the true Spiritual India, with so many religions in one country, it’s a wonder they have lived in relative peace for so long! Northern India probably harbours more religions than anywhere else in the world: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism - to name just a few. On this unique tour we visit famous pilgrimage centres and religious sites where you will come face to face with challenging philosophies and tradition which are intriguing to witness and absorb. This the perfect trip to immerse yourself not only in India as a country but also its many varied religions and cultures where the sheer intensity and zest for life will create a truly memorable lasting impression.
