Indian Subcontinent Natural World Holidays


The Indian Subcontinent contains an extraordinary range of landscapes, with a wealth of natural wonders available to discover here.

Bangladesh is home to the world's largest mangrove forest, the Sundarban Mangrove Forest, which is home to a wide range of wildlife. The Kuakata Beach stretches 30km along a forested shore and is a popular pilgrimage point for both hindus and Buddhists.

Natural wonders in India include lakes, waterfalls, valleys and forests. Cruise the backwaters in Kerala or seek out the Ajanta and Ellora Caves, which are architecturally impressive. The Thar and Kutch Deserts are colourful and surprisingly full of wildlife, whilst the Himalayas loom  over the north of the country; Kanchenjunga and Nanda Devi are amongst the famous sites here. Amidst the mountains are the Gangotri Glacier, Pindari Glacier and Nanda Devi group of glaciers, all of which are spectacular.

Nepal is dominated by the Himalayas, with many of the mighty peaks here comprising natural wonders in their own right; Annapurna and Mount Everest are visually stunning and afford visitors with all sorts of trekking options. Look out too for Rara Lake and Tilicho Lake, high in the mountains, and the Kali Gandaki Gorge, down which you can raft.

These are just a handful of the options available though. you can also tailor-make your natural world holiday on the indian Subcontinent by adding a city stay or excursion to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
