INDIA IS BACK.
Asia’s most exuberant, colorful and individualistic nation is back. India is a million miles from your average holiday destination, entrancing visitors courtesy of its cornucopia of sights, sounds, and experiences. With its borders closed on and off for nearly two years, there is plenty of time to make up — and a vast land to explore. So we’ve picked four selected journeys to refire our own love affair with the Subcontinent, and tempt you to visit.
India is open to vaccinated travelers without quarantine.
THE “MOONLANDS” OF
Tso Moriri, Ladakh
Explore the far north to discover the Himalayan dreamscape of Ladakh, which Jay Remote Lands Co-Founder & COO Jay described as “the most stunning scenery I've seen anywhere”. This adventure takes you through the incredible mountain topography of Leh, Srinagar and Shimla — an outdoor paradise— while also offering interesting cultural insight in the form of Leh’s 17th century Old Town, curious remnants of Victorian Britain, and remote hillside Buddhist monasteries. Highlights include traversing the Khardungla Pass — the highest motorable road in the world — and the photogenic mirror-like waters of Dal Lake.VIEW ITINERARY
THE LAND OF KINGSJaisalmer Fort, Rajasthan
Venture into India’s most evocative land — a land that belongs to another era, one of desert forts and grand Rajput palaces. Explore the four great cities of Rajasthan in one journey, while enjoying notable detours to the Taj Mahal and Jawai, where you will stay at Sujan Jawai Leopard Camp. Among the many highlights are hot air ballooning over Jaipur’s forts, dining in a private lakeside pavilion overlooking Udaipur’s resplendent City Palace, overnighting at the Oberoi Udavilas, experiencing a traditional puja ritual in Jodhpur and witnessing the starry-night sky in the Thar Desert, just outside of Jaisalmer. You will stay in a number of converted heritage hotels including Taj Rambagh Palace.
This two-week journey is designed for couples but can be adjusted for families.
THE SOUTHERN BACKWATERSKollam, Kerala
Slow down to see the world as you explore the sundrenched southern reaches of the Subcontinent. From your starting point in India’s most vibrant city, Mumbai, you will travel to Goa — famed for its golden beaches, but particularly rich in culture and history — before moving on to “God's Own Country”, Kerala. Focus on being present as you drift through the overhanging emerald canopies of the bucolic backwaters aboard your luxurious kettuvallam (houseboat). This is a culturally engrossing journey that will show you different sides of India, including one of the oldest cities in the world, Madurai, and Mysore — where you’ll dine with descendants of the Wodeyar royal dynasty — plus Bangalore, a modern tech-hub.VIEW ITINERARY
THE FORGOTTEN REALMSRoyal Chhatri of Orchha
Madhya Pradesh is an expansive state in the central heartlands of India, bordering Rajasthan. Yet it receives a mere fraction of the international tourists its iconic neighbor enjoys. In other words, it’s exactly the kind of destination Remote Lands loves — immersive, off-the-well-traveled path and brimming with rewards for intrepid travelers. On the agenda for Madhya Pradesh is the seat of the Bundela Rajput kings, Orchha, the epic five-storey Gwalior Fort, and the ‘living museum’ of Maheshwar, where you’ll explore several Unesco World Heritage sites — all of which are the equal of Rajasthan. Here you will stay at Ahilya Fort, a 250-year-old converted fort overlooking Narwada River.
Madhya Pradesh is also home to two of India’s three best national parks for tracking tigers — Kanha and Bandhavgarh.
