Suggested itineraries in September
As the chill creeps into September evenings in the UK, distract yourself from the oncoming winter months by taking a trip eastwards to prolong summer. This is a fantastic time to visit Bhutan, particularly if you enjoy trekking. Bright blue skies mean that the stunning Himalayan mountains are always in view and the departure of the recent rainy season means that temperatures stay cool. If you’re planning a trip to see wildlife in India, now is the ideal time to visit. After the humid and rainy summer months the forests of Rajasthan are shimmering with life. Spot tigers and leopards whilst on luxury safari in India's central National Parks such as Ranthambore, Panna, Satpura, Kanha and Banghavgarh.
