Karnataka, cultural journey in ancient kingdoms

A former kingdom of Mysuru (Mysore), Karnataka is located in southwestern India which is bordered by the lush coastal region of Karavali and Malnad, a mountainous region belonging to the long chain of western ghats. Karnataka’s capital is the modern Bengaluru (Bangalore), a centre of new technologies located on the Maidan Plateau.

Karnataka has been home to several indigenous empires that have contributed to the cultural wealth of this region. Thus, the kingdom of Vijayanagara, which was before the Maratha Empire one of the last ramparts against the Mughal domination, left us one of the most prestigious sites of India: the city of Hampi. The medieval Hoysala kings, for their part, have marked with their harmonious seal the sites of Beluru, Halebidu and Somnathpur.

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.”

"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."

Mathini understood our needs as photographers and prepared a tailor-made tour that filled all our expectations and with a very reasonable budget! We visited the desert of Thar, off-the-beaten track and discover authentic villages with people of extraordinary kindness. From an organizational point of view, everything went perfectly, no false notes! We will never forget this trip, thank you again, Mathini, we will come back for sure and we are already recommending your agency to our friends.
