Wildlife Retreat

Mist wraps itself around the Blue Mountains, cooling the spice-covered hills of the south….a lone tusker sounds a bugle call by a tranquil lake….but even cicadas can’t be heard in a silent valley. This must be how the earth looked like once – wild, free, uncaged, raw, pregnant with memories, like elephants. Elephants have memories, yes, and so will you when you leave wild.

India Wildlife Retreat - Tour Package

Day – 1 Madurai

Arrive at Madurai, meet by Halo representative at arrival hall and transfer to your hotel.
Madurai-one of south India's most ancient city, on the banks of the River Vaigai, has been an important center of workship and commerce for as long as there has been civilization in South India – indeed, it has long been described as “the
Athens of the East”. The Meenakshi Temple in the heart of the old town is the supreme attraction here. A rightfully flamboyant example of Dravidian architecture it has gopurams covered from top to bottom with vibrant images of deities, animals and mythical figures. Overnight at the hotel in Madurai.
