India’s Best Kept Secrets

Posted on Thu, 05/01/2014 - 15:19 by Sunil Trehan
 

Almost no one really knows what a limitless supply of places to see and things to experience that there are in India. I have explored India for over five decades, and I’m nowhere close to having seen it all. Yet there are amazing sights and experiences that even Indians that frequently travel have never heard of.

As the principal of the leading boutique travel facilitator for India, it gives me great pleasure when our guests rave about a non-mainstream destination or an experience that they had never heard of until they consulted us.

This blog will share these unique destinations and/or experiences. We will start with what I believe is the best kept secret in Indian Tourism, the state of Karnataka.
