Travel India with us! India can be aptly define as land of diversities and contradictions. Rather a sustaining paradox! Yet lies functioning unity in every element of its diversities. Within a few kilometer of driving distance, you may come across varying degree of diversity from the last one you saw a few kilometer back. It will never cease to amaze you.
People travel with their own set of likings, interests and proclivities and with this extension trip, an attempt is made to add diversity like India itself and vindicate your trip as a whole. Be it warm, sunny, vibrant beach of Goa and its quaint colonial churches,renowned flea markets. Or be it your business prospects, crowd and cosmopolitan face – beneath its veneer sophistication lies its rich traditional values of Indian biggest Metropolis – Mumbai. Or land of Rajas – Rajasthan, with its rich cultural and traditional heritage as old as time itself. Or Delhi the capital of India, which has history engraved in every stones and corners. And most of its historical monuments beckon you alluringly. Or perhaps your interest lies in nature and wildlife, and Corbett National Park and Rathambore Tiger Sanctuary fit your bills perfectly with wide array of Flora and Fauna on offering.

Ranthambore Tiger Sanctuary – 3 Days (Tiger Safari) Ranthambore is situated in the State of Rajasthan and is surrounded by hill ranges and very near to the outer fringes of the Thar Desert. Originally a hunting ground of the Maharaja of Jaipur, Ranthambore was declared a game sanctuary in 1955. In 1980, it became a national park and listed among the reserves protected under Project Tiger (1973). It sprawls over an estimated area of 400 square kms. Steep crags embrace a network of lakes and rivers, and on top of one of these hills is the impressive Ranthambore Fort built in the 10th century. The terrain fluctuates between impregnable forests and open bush land. As a result of stringent efforts in conservation, tigers, the prime assets of the Park, have become more and more active during the day.
