Trip Highlights

•   The mystical markets of Odisha are the only chance most foreigners will ever have to interact with people from the difficult to access tribes of Odisha

•   Explore lush jungle, fertile hillside and brackish lakes and get a sense of why many tribes feel a spiritual connection to the land here

•   Begin in the heritage-rich ‘City of Joy’, Kolkata, and explore streets lined with thousands of clay goddesses in the potter’s quarter

•   See a side of India beyond the photos of the Taj Mahal and the Ganges – Odisha is a lesser-explored state full of historical and cultural treasures

•   Explore the excavated caves of Khandagiri and Udaigiri, which served as a dwelling and abbey for Jain monks almost 2000 years ago in Bhubaneswar

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to Kolkata, known as the ‘City of Joy’. This expedition officially gets started with a welcome meeting at 6 pm, where you can meet your leader and fellow intrepid souls. Please have your insurance and next of kin details on hand to pass on to your leader at this meeting. With the formalities out of the way, maybe head out for a meal with your fellow travellers. If you arrive with time to spare before the meeting in the evening, why not explore this festive city on your own, kati roll (stuffed roti) in hand.
