You must have seen this on television: people driving campers around the American wilderness for months, and stopping every night to camp and roast marshmallows around bonfires. Now you can turn off that TV and join Voyages Overland, which makes no promises of marshmallows, but gives you an opportunity to go overlanding (travelling long distances over land) in India. They have luxury trucks, equipped with amenities such as washing machines and self-help kitchens, to drive you around plenty of different circuits, and have you camp out at stops and access offbeat places in difficult terrain. Their fixed itineraries vary from seven to 43 days, and include the hills, royal trails and the Indian heartlands.
Voyages Overland presently covers three different circuits in India, namely — Rajasthan, The Himalayas and Central India. The Rajasthan circuit is recommended for the lovers of culture, art, architecture and those interested to see the vibrant colors of everyday desert lives, the circuit in Central India is perfect for Overlanders with an interest in spirituality, art, and wildlife. The circuit covering the Himalayan range up north provides for a good mix of adventure and tranquil nothingness along with tremendous stargazing and nature walk opportunities. Voyages Overland currently is gearing up for their upcoming trails in the Himalayas for the months of May to August.
Voyages Overland is a team of seasoned overlanders passionate about places, experiences, and the wide, open road. Their cumulative travel experience spans over 50 countries, having overlanded through states, countries and continents. The central idea of the itineraries is to experience the outdoors like very few have, while never losing sight of the tenets of responsible tourism. They are all about bringing back groovy fun into community travel, gathering stories, memories, and travel mates that last a lifetime.
