Visits to India

We had a fantastic time in Tamil Nadu earlier this year and are already looking forward to next years visit.

Sunday 20th January 2019 - Saturday 2nd February 2019

£1195 including 13 nights accommodation with breakfast, airport transfers, plus a volunteer leader throughout the whole visit.
 
SOTE’s visit starts in Chennai before moving south to Pondicherry, also known as Puducherry. The centuries of French rule gave this town a unique Indo-French atmosphere, preserved in the architecture and relaxed lifestyle. Here we will visit places of interest and have time to explore this charming town and its beach.
 
The next destination is Mahabalipuram, where we will have a guided tour at one of the oldest Hindu temples in Southern India, dating back to 600BC. From Mahabalipuram, we will visit the first of SOTE’s partner organisations, the CARE Foundation.
 
Returning to Chennai, Tamil Nadu’s state capital formally known as Madras, we will visit CRUSADE who are located north of the city. The final destination will be Bangalore, the state capital of Karnataka. From Bangalore, we will travel a short distance over the Tamil Nadu border to visit SOTE’s last partner, MASARD.
 
We hope you can join us.
