Walking

Nothing can match the exploration on foot – whether it’s the bustle of Old Delhi, a walk in the coffee plantations of Chikamagalur or the sprawl of weathered ruins of Hampi. Walking trails by Indo Asia are popular with those who want to take in the country slowly, absorbing all dimensions of the diverse nuances that the country presents. We prepare you in advance regarding the time and environment that you will encounter, while on foot, so you can tune into the sights and sounds with care and as per your taste.

Indo Asia offers some of the best walking trails across the country – trails that take you through dep historic links in monuments or out in the wilderness. All of these trails are guided by experts who inject the trip with anecodotes and stories that make a trip worth your while. It is nothing short of deep immersion in the culture of India.

This is most definitely the best way to see the country- its vibrant markets, the historical slices and the daily life. You also get a chance to pace out the trip and not do the sights with a ‘tick off the list’ velocity. Local interactions are more probable, which all add up to a memory that is forever imprinted in your mind.
