Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Goa, Pondicherry and
Kerala comprise what is geographically penisular, vibrant
and culturally kaleidoscopic South India.
South India is framed by the rolling Eastern Ghats and the
relatively craggier Western Ghats. Its a intricate skein of
golden beaches, lush forests, centuries-old temples and some
of the most challenging treks south of the Himalayas.
Roads in the South are by and large well-maintained and in
case of the State Highways even surprisingly devoid of traffic.
People are friendly, really secular and quaintly colourful,
though language could be a problem. Food is really an adventure
with the finest of vegetarian fare as well as non vegetarian
fare available at road side eateries as well as premium hotels.
South India by road is an endless adventure. The itinerant
traveller can look forward to discovering forgotten forts,
age-old temples and a thousand and one roads less travelled
by. Wander in the south and you will slowly feel it grow on
The lilting dialects, the fiery food, the amazing sunrises
and sunsets and the lush greenery of the south will make you
wonder - where were you all your life, when paradise was so
