Gujarat, a cultural & ethnic journey
Gujarat is a state located in northwestern India, bordered by Pakistan in its northern part. This region is not yet very touristy so that at certain times of the year, you will not meet any foreign visitors; This is also what gives it its charm!
And yet, Gujarat does not lack centres of interest, it is endowed with a rich heritage including fabulous monuments like the temple of the Sun of Modhera or the Patan stepwell or the site of Champaner classified World Heritage of humanity.
On the sacred side, there are a plethora of sights, among the most important are the enigmatic Jain temples of Palitana, the highly venerated city of Lord Krishna in Dwarka, the lingam of light of Somnath and the Dattatraya temple of the Mount Girnar, one for the brave of heart as it is reached after a climb of 9,999 steps exactly.
Gujarat is also home to the Rann of Kutch, one of the world’s largest salt deserts, the last refuge of the wild Indian donkey. In this same region, there is an incredible kaleidoscope of ethnic groups who have developed their own customs and traditions.

Merveilles du Karnataka
"Lors de notre voyage au Karnataka j’ai découvert des lieux et temples vraiment fabuleux. Les homestays était tous différents avec à chaque fois un accueil chaleureux dans des endroits très calmes pour un repos bien mérité. Notre chauffeur, Raj était toujours à l’écoute pour nos demandes et disponible. Ce voyage avec Mathini Travel nous a permis de découvrir plein de beaux endroits à l’écart des zones trop touristiques.”
JOURNEY TO THE ROCK-CUT TEMPLES
"We are back home after exciting time in India. I am grateful to Mathini Travel for expert tour arrangements which commenced on October 7, 2019. We did Maharastra and Vrindavan and Mathura. We didn’t have much idea about where and how to do the tour. Mathini took the interest to organize the tours with minor details. For example arranged the days of tour accommodating closing days of Ellora and Ajanta Caves. We wouldn’t have done such pleasant tour without her. She was very flexible about payments. Our flight which we booked at the end of the tour was postponed by a day, but she made sure the Airport transport was rearranged for our convenience. My past tour of Rajasthan with her prompted me to get her help again. I have no doubt that she has great first hand knowledge and expertise of touring India. I look forward to next trip with her! Wishing her Best in her Tour services."
