Soul of India: The Colorful South
Travel to India and see its colorful southern region. From the rock-hewn temples that overlook the shimmering Bay of Bengal to the lush palm-fringed shores of the Arabian Sea, southern India is brimming with natural splendor and cultural diversity. Chennai, where Tamil music fills the air … Tanjore, where millennium-old Chola temples rise over ancient streets … rugged Kerala, where abundant wildlife roams free on the Cardamom Hills. Surrounded by a symphony of colors and languages, your OAT small group will revel in the guidance of an expert resident Trip Leader, who knows how to make the most of your travel experience, whether you’re exploring sacred temples or spice-filled markets. As you meet brick-makers, grape farmers, schoolchildren, and even join a family on their houseboat in the backwaters, you’ll come to know the people who truly are the vibrant Soul of India.
