This unusual but fascinating tour offers a glimpse of a part of India that is often neglected by visitors and its existence is unknown by many. Chhattisgarh is a breakaway state of Madhya Pradesh and is home to a wealth of history, culture, tribal lands and staggering scenery. Stay in the comfort of one of Chhattisgarh's most elegant palaces whilst venturing out on foot, through the beautiful Maikal Hills to see ancient temples and ruins, learning about the unknown tribal cultures of the area. Continue to the former kingdom of Kalinga - Orissa, a large, verdant state clinging to the coast of the Bay of Bengal. With its sandy beaches, extraordinary beehive shaped temples and mighty monuments, it is easy to see how this area flourished between the 7th and 15th centuries.
