Traveller's Palm is an internet based tour operator, offering you a unique way of travelling around India.
Over the last two decades, we have traveled the length and breadth of the sub-continent to find exciting and unusual places to stay in some of India's most beautiful and fascinating locations. We now have a carefully selected range of guest houses and ancestral homes, atmospheric heritage hotels, intimate boutique hotels, stylish hideaways and finest palace hotels. They may differ in standard and price from moderate to luxury but they all guarantee a memorable experience.
The scope of special places to see and stay in India is quite overwhelming. In order to help you make a choice, we have put together a diverse and original range of short tours or modules that you can use as a guideline, or as building blocks of a longer tour. All our modules are self-contained; the beauty is that you can take just one, or combine a number of them to plan yourself a holiday that takes you to places where you most want to go. All holidays can of course be modified to suit your personal requirements as all our trips are 100% tailor-made.
You are always able to discuss the itinerary ideas with our travel experts and fine tune the travel plan if you think it can be improved in any way so that you will arrive at a program of your choice.
Happy browsing and we hope you enjoy your tour!

Traveller's Palm is not really a palm, although the trunk gives it that appearance. It's closely related to bananas (as you might guess from the shape of the leaves) and in the same family as the Bird-of-Paradise Flower.
It gets its name from two distinctive characteristics. First, the leaves collect water and channel it into the base of the plant, so a thirsty traveler could cut a hole in the soft trunk and get a significant amount of drinkable water-about one liter per branch.
Second, Traveller's Palms tend to grow in an east-west direction, with each new branch turning either toward or away from the sun. So it can also serve as a sort of compass, to put you back on track after quenching your thirst.
