In Chennai we will stay in a comfortable modern hotel.
*Important note* - if you are joining the trip in Chennai, please make sure that you send us a scan of your Indian visa as soon as you have obtained it.
You might prefer to just wander the streets and soak up the atmosphere, exploring the many temples and bustling local markets.
However, we will generally follow the plan below: On the first day we will have an early start from Visakhapatnam to arrive in a small village called Goudaguda in time to visit the Monday markets.
The temple is visited by an astonishing 30-40 million pilgrims per year (around 50,000-100,000 people a day and more on special festivals), making it the most-visited holy site in the world and the richest in terms of visitor donations.
Leaving Tirupati, we will spend the next few days overlanding through Andhra Pradesh, one of the least developed states in India.
Travel to India’s west, a place of divine beaches, remote landscapes and unique cities.
Embark on an Overland adventure from chaotic Chennai to cultured Kolkata, a fascinating and memorable tour of India’s unforgettable settings.
