North to Northeast India 2017 Itinerary

One of the world's most spectacular living root bridges, which is a tough but immensely rewarding day-hike from a village where we'll be staying a few nights. Believe it or not, the whole span is made of rubber tree roots that were trained across that canyon over the course of a few decades by local villagers, making it one of the world's most striking examples of biological architecture. During this trip, we'll be staying in two very different villages, in a little visited corner of Northeast India that's simply abounding in fantastic things to see.


 The Northeast Indian state of Meghalaya receives more rainfall than any other spot on the globe, is one of the few places in the world with centuries old living root bridges, and is home to some of India's friendliest and most interesting tribal communities: the Khasis and Jaintias. It's a place of stunning beauty, of four thousand foot deep mist filled canyons, where there's literally a waterfall around every corner, and where the average day's walk involves crossing raging, monsoon-swelled torrents over suspension bridges not much wider than your foot that are strung across rocky chasms......

Whirlwind North India Itinerary


A 300 year old painting inside the Rai Praveen palace in the town of Orchha. Rai Praveen was a famed dancer in the late 17th century, though her palace is only one of many we'll visit on our nine day trip across North India. 

This itinerary will pack as many incredible sights into nine days of travelling as humanly possible. Everyday you'll see something new and unexpected. Simply put, it'll be a week and a half you'll never forget!
