The Essence of South India was a contrast in three parts. 1. The beautiful Pondicherry and the incredible temples all they way through to Madurai. 2. The misty cool of Thekkady and Munnar provided relief from the heat and 3. The coastal waterways and beaches from Alleppey to Kovalam a great way to wind down from our travel through South India.

Santo is a fantastic guide. Northern India is a far more interesting destination. This trip is very expensive and there are not many wow moments like I experienced on the North India trip.
Peregrine AdventuresOur name stems from the word 'Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company.
