Season’s Greetings!

Thank you for being so receptive to the India Updates. Many of you have written back on the usefulness of our newsletter, we are indeed overwhelmed!

It is a pleasure to resent to you this week’s edition that will take you through the beautiful and less explored Scotland of India – Shillong and the richly endowed Sunderban Forests. Get up-close with one of an interesting tribe- The Brokpa‘s of Ladakh and savour our signature experience of Luxury Golfing. Also showcased in this issue is the world heritage site of the Ajanta caves , that date back to 100B.C - an architecture marvel, the virgin beach of Varkala in south India with its picturesque landscape &unique history and the breathtaking sights ‘n sounds of the Hampi Festival .

We are delighted to share with the recent meaningful interaction between our guests and the children from of our partner NGO Deepalaya, an initiative under the aegis of ‘ Shaping Lives’, the Le Passage to India Travel foundation. It was indeed a heartwarming experience for all of us to facilitate those special moments, that brought smiles and cheer to the kids.

We hope you enjoy reading this India Update as much as we have putting it together.

Have an incredible week.

Most Warmly
Arjun Sharma
