In fact, the northern state of Rajasthan on its own is worthy of a bucket-list trip. Here, New Delhi – the country’s extraordinary capital, where the cutting edge and the truly ancient live side by side – is your jumping-off point. This semi-arid region, roughly translated from Sanskrit as “Land of the Kings” is stuffed with palaces, fortresses and temples dating back millenia. It’s also where you’ll find India’s most famous building, the Taj Mahal. Add to that authentic rural villages, vibrant cities and jaw-dropping landscapes, and you’ve got a 10-day adventure stuffed with unforgettable memories.

In the region of Munnar, the hills are rich with the aroma of tea, cardamom and coffee. Centuries-old plantations dot the hillsides, some of which double as authentic accommodations. Here, hitting the hiking trails is the best way to see it – you’ll pass through lost-in-time villages, lush woodland and hill stations with stupendous views over electric green valleys.
