Wheelchair accessible holidays in India

India’s rich and diverse culture, its historic architecture, and vivid landscapes, not to mention the exotic sensory experiences that come from travelling in different regions, have never been so accessible as they are today. That goes double, of course, when you travel with specialist operators that take the requirements of individual travellers into full account throughout every trip.
All our wheelchair accessible itineraries are completely tailor made, according to a detailed pre-trip discussion, so that you can be confident your needs will be met. Personalised and professional assistance is available whether you wish to travel solo or not, and all hotel rooms meet international accessibility standards, though when accommodations are in rural areas, such as homestays, you should expect things to be a little more basic. Restaurants, and activities, are carefully assessed beforehand to ensure that they are wheelchair accessible and of course there is plenty of flexibility when it comes to your travel dates, too, should you feel more comfortable in cooler weather.

Where to go on a wheelchair accessible holiday in India

Kerala – ‘God’s own country’

Poised at India’s southern tip on the Malabar Coast, Kerala is sometimes known as ‘God’s own country’ – it is said the Hindu god Lord Vishnu once flung an axe across the sea, creating a new land for his followers to live in harmony: Kerala.
And yes, in case you were wondering, Kerala lives up to the nickname and beyond. Here you have around 600km of idyllic coastline with golden beaches, then behind them a labyrinthine network of canals and waterways – a short houseboat cruise on the Kerala backwaters is an unforgettable highlight of trips here. Moving further inland you have the Western Ghats, on whose slopes farmers plant tea and spices, the Periyar Tiger Reserve in Thekkady. Macaques chatter in the forests where barking deer, elephants and even leopards roam, as well as Bengal tigers, of course.
You might tour blissfully peaceful rural villages and balmy hill stations, take a crash course in fusing Indian spices with a cookery lesson from a local chef, or indulge in some of those famous Ayurvedic wellness treatments. And at every stage, there is a wonderful sense of inclusivity, your enjoyment and participation not limited in the slightest by the fact you’re in a wheelchair.

The Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is probably the most iconic route in all of India, taking you around many of the country’s most famous and incomparable sights from the Taj Mahal, ‘the greatest monument to love ever built’, to the magnificent pink city of Jaipur.
Over the course of 10-days, you’ll pack a great deal in despite a relaxed approach. You will explore the sprawling Mehrauli Archaeological Park in Delhi with over 100 historic monuments, as well as the capital’s many temples and prestigious mausoleums; the Agra Fort, actually more of a walled city and once the seat of the Mughal Empire; and of course the spectacular Taj Mahal, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and India’s most recognisable building.
But for many travellers it’s those moments in the gaps between landmarks that make the Golden Triangle such a treasure, and a wheelchair accessible tour is no exception. You will lunch with a local family, learning about folk traditions, visit an elephant rescue centre and perhaps help to bathe the animals. You can dine on regional cuisine at a cafe run by acid attack survivors, a heartbreaking and inspirational experience in equal measure, as you discover their determination and entrepreneurship.
