Explore Spectacular South India with A&K

May 30, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Travel specialists Abercrombie & Kent have released a new and inspiring small group journey through Tamil Nadu, in India’s South.

Included in the group journey will be a tour of entrepreneurial projects in Mahabalipuram and Pondicherry. Here, travellers will learn about the many issues facing impoverished communities and the local women who are leading the charge in tackling these issues and making a real difference to local communities.

With visits to important temple towns, small villages, workshops and local kitchens, personal and uplifting stories will be shared along the way, creating a truly unique experience.

The culinary delights of the South are another key component of the journey. Travellers will explore local markets, shopping for ingredients before cooking with local women in a traditional village kitchen and dining in neighbourhood eateries.

Another highlight is the faded charm of Pondicherry’s Old Quarter, former home of the French East India Company and film location for  ‘Life of Pi’. Nearby a visit is made to the Auroville ashram and meditation centre and a special sari-tying event is included.

For every A&K traveller that embarks on this journey, a contribution will be made on their behalf, helping to provide local employment for one knitter for one month and skills training for five women at the Hand in Hand India project.
