Itinerary

Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join Trip in Mumbai and start discovering this dynamic city

Traditionally known as Bombay, Mumbai is the capital of the Indian state of Maharashtra. An exciting place to start our journey, it is the most populated, richest and one of the most vibrant cities in India. Our first taste of the colour and chaos of the city will be a visit to the area where the film 'Slumdog Millionaire' was set; a thriving and industrious quarter called Dharavi which is home to more than a million people. We'll wander through the narrow lanes and alleys learning how the people live and the incredible ingenuity that sees them thrive.

Day 2 - Continue exploring Mumbai and take the afternoon train to Vadodara

After breakfast we continue our exploration of Mumbai. On Malabor Hill we drive past the Towers of Silence which were constructed by Parsis fleeing persecution in Persia during the 17th century. As Zoroastrians, their dead were deposited in these towers to allow nature to dispose of their bodies. We also visit the Mahatma Gandhi Museum where we'll learn a little about the great man's life and ideas through an impressive collection of books, photographs and letters. Finally we take a walk around the Colaba heritage area, visiting the honey-coloured Gateway of India which was built to commemorate the visit of King George V and Queen Mary and was the place where the last British troops left India. In the afternoon we board our train to Vadodara. The journey is around five hours and is a great opportunity to mix with the locals as we leave Mumbai behind and pass through countryside, towns and villages.

Day 3 - Explore the UNESCO site of Champaner - Pavagadh, drive to Ahmedabad

This morning we explore what was once the largest private residence in the world. The Laxmi Villas are a sprawling palace complex four times the size of Buckingham Palace and a stunning example of Indo-European architecture. Exploring the ornate palace and attractive gardens, we'll gain an insight in to the privileged lives of the Maharajas. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Champaner - Pavagadh is an hour's drive away and is our next port of call. Consisting of numerous temples, palaces and fortifications, the oldest parts date from the 8th century, while many of the most complete buildings are from the period that the site became the capital of the region in the 1500s. After a couple of hours at the site we drive to the largest city in Gujarat, Ahmedabad, a journey of around 3 hours.

Day 4 - Heritage walk of th Ahmedabad and visit to Gandhi's Ashram

The UNESCO World Heritage City of Ahmedabad is home to impressive Indian-Islamic monuments, exquisite Hindu and Jain temples, and old carved wooden houses that are unique to the city. Wandering through the streets before it gets too hot is a great way to see the all the sights while soaking up the atmosphere and starting to acquaint ourselves with Gujarat and its people. Highlights of the walk include the 19th century Swaminarayan Temple Kalupur, the famous Jama Masjid Mosque which dates from 1423, and a stop for a traditional Guajarati breakfast of Fafda - a type of cracker made of chickpea flour, Gathiya - a savoury snack made from spiced besan paste, and Jalebi - an Indian sweet made of coiled batter that is fried and steeped in syrup. In the afternoon we'll learn more about the 'Father of India' as we visit Gandhi's ashram. Although close to the centre of the city, the location on the banks of the Sabarmati River is surprisingly peaceful. We'll see the small room in which he slept, his famous spinning wheel and round glasses, and learn about his spiritual teachings and non-violent opposition movement which was largely orchestrated from here.

Day 5 - Drive to Bajana via the Sun temple at Modhera and the Queen's Stepwell at Rani Ki Vav

We have a five to six hour drive to Bajana today with a couple of very interesting stops along the way. The first is at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Rani Ki Vav, or the 'Queen's Step Well', which dates from the 11th century and is one of the largest and grandest step wells in India. The next stop will be at Modhera where we will visit the well-preserved Sun Temple. Built in 1026, it is dedicated to the Hindu sun god known as Surya. It has a huge, perfectly designed water tank, an ornate 'hall of gatherings' with carvings from the Hindu epics, and a main temple with more carvings depicting daily life.

Day 6 - Explore the Little Rann of Kutch and continue to Bhuj

An early start this morning as we board jeeps to search for wild asses in the 'Little Rann of Kutch'. This large salt marsh is a protected area and the last refuge of the Indian wild ass, a majestic animal with a reddish-brown coat and white underbelly that is more reminiscent of horses than of other species of ass. We return to our hotel for breakfast before leaving for Bhuj, a drive of around five hours, stopping along the way for our first glimpse of the salt-pan landscape that the Great Rann of Kutch is famous for.

Day 7 - Discover the landscapes of the Great Rann of Kutch and meet the nearby tribal communities

Today we visit several villages to meet the tribal communities of the Kutch area. We'll start with a visit to the Lohar community of Nirona village, traditionally blacksmiths and are the only people in the world that still practice Rogan art where designs are painted on to cloth to create colourful saris. At Bhirandiyara village we'll enjoy tea and fresh Mawa (milk cheese) with the Meghwal people. The women of the tribe are renowned for their exuberantly detailed costumes and jewellery, and their circular homes are decorated with elaborate mud brick and mirror artwork known as Lippan Kaam. At the village of Ludiya we'll meet more Megwhal people and also the Samma tribe, Muslims that consider they to be descendants of the Rajputs that once dominated north and central India. Finally, a pretty hamlet called Dhordo is our entry point to the salt-pan desert. We'll spend a couple of hours here exploring the vast landscape, and enjoying the surreal scenery.

A five to six hour drive will take us to Jamnagar. There are a couple of interesting stops along the way including Ajrakhpur village, which is famous for block printed cloth, and the weaving village of Bhujodi. At Jamnagar we walk around the old town and visit the local market and bazaar where brass and textiles are sold. There are several temples to see including the Bala Hanuman Temple, dedicated to the Hindu god Rama and famous for its continuous chanting which has been going on since 1964. We can witness this incredible act of devotion and even join in if we like, which will make us part of a Guinness World Record!

Accommodation: Hotel Fortune Palace(or similar)

Day 9 - Explore Jamnagar Marine Park and drive to the holy city of Dwarka

Today we discover Jamnagar Marine Park which has coral reefs, mangroves and a network of creeks and mudflats that support an abundance of marine and bird life. If we are lucky we might spot some of the park's many inhabitants including octopus, puffer fish, sea turtles, crabs, dolphins, star fish, colourful corals and exotic marine flowering plants. The timing of the visit will be dependent on the tide and may be any time from early morning to mid-afternoon. We'll also visit Jamnagar market before we drive for approximately three hours to Dwarka, a coastal town that has the unique status of being one of the four principal holy pilgrimage places of Hinduism, as well as one of the seven ancient towns where the gods descended to the mortal world - Krishna in this case, an incarnation of Vishnu who is said to have made the city his capital in 3000 BC.

Day 10 - Drive to Gir National Park and begin our search for Asiatic Lions

This morning we'll make an early morning visit to the intricately carved seven-story Dwarkadhish temple which towers above the town and whose main shrine has been dated to 100 - 200 BC. The small lanes around the temple are dotted with tea stalls and seashell jewellery sellers and the nearby Ghats lead down to the Gomti river close to where it meets the sea. We will witness the Mangla Aarti ceremony here before a four to five hour drive to Gir National Park, the only place in the world where Asiatic lions can be seen in the wild. The park has varied terrain of rugged hills, high ridges, densely forested valleys and wide grassland plateaus. It is relatively small which gives us a good chance of spotting the lions and there is plenty of other wildlife to look out for as well, including several species of deer and antelope, leopards, langur monkeys, striped hyenas, honey badgers, ruddy mongoose and a huge variety of birds. We begin our exploration of the park with a late afternoon jeep safari accompanied by an expert park guide.

On arrival in Bhavnagar we take a drive through the town before checking in to our hotel. Time permitting there will be the option to visit the small Barton museum which houses archaeological remains from the region and has a floor dedicated to Gandhi.

Day 12 - Visit the spectacular Hill temples of Shatrunjaya

Leaving early, we drive for around an hour and a half to Shatrunjaya Hill. The name means 'place of victory against inner enemies' and is sacred to followers of the Jain religion, who consider it to be the location of the first sermon delivered by the 'teaching god' of the present period of time. There are almost 900 Jain temples clustered on top of the hill's two peaks, and many more on the hills nearby. The oldest dates from the fifth century but most are from the 19th century when the hill saw an intense period of temple building. There are over 3500 steps to the top and it generally takes around two hours to make the climb. We aim to be there before the heat of the day to make the walk to the top as comfortable as possible, and palanquins (a litter carried by porters) can be hired. For those that don't want to make the climb, there is a local market and some pleasant countryside to explore around the bottom of the hill. Leaving Shatrunjaya, we head for Ahmedabad via Lothal, a journey of around five hours. An incredibly old site, Lothal was a small village from 3700 BC and became one of the most important cities of the Harappan culture from 2300 BC. There is evidence that the people of the city worshipped a fire god and may have followed Vedic religious practices.

Why book this trip

The state of Gujarat is tucked away in the north-west corner of India and offers a lot variety in a relatively small (by Indian standards) area. There is unique wildlife to be found with Asiatic lions in Gir National Park and Indian wild asses at the Little Rann of Kutch. There are colourful and friendly tribal communities that maintain age old traditions and live the same way they have for generations, and there are great walled cities such as Ahmedabad, where the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi passed on his spiritual teachings and plotted his non-violent resistance to British rule. Finally there is salt pan desert landscape the like of which you'll find nowhere else in Asia.

India Holidays & Tours

Climate

There is considerable variation between the different regions of India but, in general, the climate is tropical. Summer temperatures on the plains are very hot, but cooled by the South-West Monsoon, which lasts from June- September. During these months it can be very wet and therefore very humid. At altitude, temperatures can become quite cool at night even in the summer and may drop below freezing between December and February so warm clothing is necessary. In the winter, northern and mid India can be very cool, with cold evenings, so warm clothing, including plenty of layers, are essential. The south of India remains warm and sunny during the winter months.

Time difference to GMT

+5

Plugs

3 Pin Round

Religion

Catholicism, Hindu, Islam and Sikhism

Language

Hindi and English.

Budgeting and packing

Clothing

Bear in mind that between November and March daytime temperatures are warm and comfortable, but evenings and nights in the desert can be extremely cold and hotels rarely have heating arrangements comparable with the UK. Lightweight clothing plus warmer garments are essential. Local people may be offended by western styles of dress. Brief shorts tight fitting clothing etc. should be avoided by both men and women.

Footwear

Comfortable shoes and sandals.

Luggage

20kg

Luggage: On tour

One main piece of baggage and a daypack.

Equipment

Walking poles may be useful for navigating the steps at Shatrunjaya.

Tipping

Explore leader
Tour Leader: At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
Local crew
Local Staff: In this area, tipping is a recognised part of life. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. Accordingly, you should allow an additional £35 for tips during your tour. Your tour leader will account to you for any organised tipping.

Food and drink

Foreign Exchange
Local currency
Indian Rupee Recently new 500, 1000 and 2000 rupee notes have been bought in to circulation and as the old notes are no longer accepted there have been some cash flow issues. You don't need to worry about being given old notes as it's very easy to tell the difference, the new notes are pristine in comparison with most Indian money which is fairly tatty.
Recommended Currency For Exchange
GBP/US$ are the best currency to change into local currency.
Where To Exchange
The Indian rupee is a restricted currency and it is best not to obtain in the UK as rates are very poor. You can either change money at the airport on arrival or in major towns during the tour. Your Tour Leader will advise you on the best places in each town. Both GBP and USD cash are easy to exchange at the airport and at hotels however you will be restricted to changing £60 cash at a time and it's not possible to change money at these locations using a credit or debit card.
ATM Availability
ATMs are available in most large cities in India but they are very limited elsewhere so please do not rely on this.
Credit Card Acceptance
Very rarely, only in the larger outlets.
Travellers Cheques
Opportunities to exchange are limited.

Accommodation notes

Booking a Single Room

All of our group tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation. Please refer to the tour notes where the single room option availability is detailed on a night by night basis for this tour, and the price for the available nights is detailed on the dates & prices tab by departure date. For Self-Guided trips the Single Room supplement offers the option of a single room each and is charged per person. The Single Room supplement also applies to the third person in a party of three that will be accommodated in a single room.


Accommodation in India is as varied as the country itself. On our tours we stay in a mix of hotels, heritage properties, camp sites and homestays. Standards do not equate to standards in the UK and it's best to approach each type of accommodation with an open mind. Service can be slow in places especially when travelling with a group. For the most part hotels do not have heating so in the winter months it can be chilly and if you feel the cold you may wish to ask for extra blankets. Hot water is not always available 24 hours a day in some of the smaller properties, and with a group staying you might find if you are showering last you may miss out on the hottest water.
