 India, is a vast and splendid land of divergent cultures and cuisines – or, as Paul William Roberts would say, to the “empire of the soul.” We’ll steer you through a spectacular labyrinth of sights and mysteries to bring out the wonders of this sub-continent: battlements of Rajasthan's opulent palaces, the Taj Mahal and Varanasi on the Ganges River in the north; wild jungles and tiger habitats of central India; and tropical Malabar backwaters and plantations of the Spice Hills in the south. You’ll be enveloped by the warmth and hospitality of India’s people: in the old city of Jodphur where you’re invited to the private home of the Sankahla family for lunch; in Bandhavharh and Kanha National parks when the local guides and conservationist detail passionately their struggle to bring tigers back from the brink of extinction; and in the rural villages of Rajasthan when we dine with royal family descendants who tell us about daily Indian life.

I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!

I Found Colors in India That I'd Never Seen Before in the Rainbow of Places I've Been To!
Guest review from a custom trip to India : "Better than one in six people on our planet live in India, and four in a hundred live in the U.S. Yet India's conditions are considered extreme, in spite of the fact that as a proportion of the total population they are quite common. I simply wanted to experience the other end of the spectrum of humanity, and though I'm a fairly experienced traveler, I found colors in India that I'd never seen before in the rainbow of places I've been to." Mike and Nani M. spent 3 weeks exploring India on a custom itinerary that took them from the sands of Rajasthan to the banks of the river Ganges to the foothills of the Himalayas. Their trip was initially inspired by the food trail taken by celeb food critic Anthony Bourdain but quickly morphed into a trip encompassing desert palaces, city...

All Around India - Guest Review

All Around India - Guest Review
All Around India was the name of the custom itinerary we gave to an intrepid group of 5 Wildland travelers who wandered all over India for 22 days. They started in the North and visited Delhi and the Taj Mahal before setting off in search of tigers in Ranthambhore National Park. From there they jetted south to the east coast of India where they toured cardamom and tea plantations, trekked to waterfalls, and saw elaborate Hindu temples. They ended their trip with a journey to the UNESCO caves of Ellora and Ajanta before spending some time in the heart of Bollywood, Mumbai. Check out what they have to say about their experience!  What places or experiences did you enjoy most and why? The Taj Mahal really was as spectacular as its reputation has it, and is a must-see sight. We also enjoyed Munnar as a welcome respite after many miles of...

Meet Your Guides: Anand Sinha

Meet Your Guides: Anand Sinha
Namascar! More often than not the highlight of  adventure trips to India is the guides. How well a guide gets along with you, a Wildland traveler, can make or break a trip. Wildland puts a lot of effort into finding the best guides for every area that we travel to. Wildland focuses on using local guides in each area, ensuring that these guides possess a seemingly unlimited wealth of knowledge about their area of expertise. The last time I traveled to India I compiled a list of questions so we could all get to know our Wildland guides a little better. I met Anand Sinha at Jamtara, a lodge in the tiger park of Pench, and it was obvious immediately that he knew his stuff. He taught me the word "crepuscular" - active at dawn and dusk- and English isn't even his first language! Anand's big smile and seemingly infinite knowledge...

What to Pack for Your Trip to India

What to Pack for Your Trip to India
I would venture a guess that the first question 98% of our travelers ask me after booking a trip to India is, "now, what do I pack?!" It's a valid question! Not only is India's climate different from what many of us are used to but the cultural expectations are as well. Get ready to pack a little different than you ever have before and you'll be well prepared to experience a country different than anywhere you've ever been before! After spending 7 weeks in India, I've put together this packing list to help give you an idea of what to bring for your adventure in India.  1. Shoes : I brought 3 pairs of shoes that I thought covered the spectrum fairly well. Sneakers for when I was hiking or exercising, sandals for most days (I really liked how sturdy the Birkenstocks were), and a pair of waterproof and durable...
