Those who undertake this journey will be staying at Homestays, guest houses and camps owned by local entrepreneurs, thus contributing directly to the local economy. As the traveling is on cycles most of the way, it enables you to take in the surroundings without damaging the environment.

The cycling was great, having a bike guide and a backup van worked really well for our style of cycling as it meant we didn't have to worry about each other. Francis and Shibu were great fun and we all enjoyed a beer together after finishing a ride. Read full review

All the arrangements went well and we loved the Palace and temples at Mysore and the Sri Meenakshi temple at Madurai including the ceremony where images of the gods are put to bed at night - which has to be one of the highlights of the vacation. Read full review
