Asia is the continent where overlanding all started, and Dragoman has been the leading operator there since our first trucks went through in the 1980s - take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. Starting the epic trip in cosmopolitan Mumbai and the relaxing beaches of Goa, we head south via the wonderful historic cities of Hampi and Mysore, the tea plantations of Wayanad and the lush backwaters of Kerala. Once we get the the southern tip of India at Kanyakumari, we journey north through the colourful temples of Madurai and the ancient Shore Temples of Mahabalipuram to arrive in the bustling city of Chennai. After leaving the hectic city of Chennai, we visit the holy Sri Venkatesvara Tirumala temple en route to the tribal areas of Odisha. This is a very special and rarely-visited region where you'll meet many different tribal people with their own distinct cultures and traditions. We then head to the historic town of Puri before arriving in the buzzing city of Kolkata. From there we will ascend to the cool, tea-growing hills of Darjeeling, and then move to the serene paradise of Karmi Farm in the Himalayan foothills. Continuing to the Tibetan town of Gangtok in the mountainous province of Sikkim, we then head to Nepal and journey to the thriving city of Kathmandu! A phenomenal Indian experience sure to leave you with many wonderful memories!
