Meander through Southern India with Southern Journeys

Southern India stretches from the 22nd parallel below the Satpura ranges all the way down to Cape Comorin at the eighth parallel, where it juts into the Laccadive sea and is bound on either side by the Bay of Bengal, and the Arabian Sea. At Southern Journeys, they believe this to be the true extent of Southern India, not just limited to the tri-states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka.

Over the centuries travellers, merchants, mercenaries and invaders have all left their mark on these lands. A land of rituals, religion, traditions and a culture that is two millennia old. From bloody conquests to colonization, from Spices to Space age, and from tradition to technology, Southern India is about as diverse as it gets. Every year in May the monsoon begins its annual ritual of drenching the country from Kerala. The Western Ghats is a mountain range that runs its 1600 Km course through states Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala and boast of great biodiversity. There is a spiritual and meditative pace to life in these lands. Southern Journeys invite you to meander here like the rivers that flow through them, to partake in their culinary delights, to participate in its rituals and enjoy Southern India.  

Twenty years ago Southern Journeys was hailed by many as avant-garde. Their experimental, radical and different attitude towards travel took them, to Sri Lanka, where after a string of successes, they had to leave the island in a hurry and it all ended there. Fast forward 2020. Southern Journeys makes a fresh start. With a team of pundits, curious by nature, passionate travellers, and eager to share their knowledge and stories with their guests. Led by Nikhil and mentored by Nagesh, their team will take you on a Southern journey like never before.
