Amazing Karnataka With Goa’s Beaches

Southern Karnataka has a wonderful mix of travel experiences, and a big bonus is that you avoid the long journey times that are a feature of many tours of North India. The state contains some of India’s finest temples, many with fabulously intricate stone sculptures. To the west lie the beautiful hills of Coorg, with endless miles of coffee and spice plantations that are among the loveliest landscapes India has to offer. 

 

Nagarhole National Park offers world-class opportunities for spotting wildlife including huge herds of Elephants that gather around Kabini Lake during the summer.

 

The royal palaces of Mysore display the impressive grandeur of its Wodiyar rulers. The amazing Maharajah’s Palace is truly one of the great sights of India with hundreds of rooms containing priceless artefacts. Mysore and its environs are replete with the history of Tippu Sultan who fought many celebrated wars with the British at the end of the 18th Century.

 

The tropical beaches of Goa lie less than one hour away by internal flights. 

 

Recommended For: anyone who wishes to combine a beach holiday in Goa with an insight into South India’s unique historic and natural heritage.
