Vaccinations and Medications

One of the most common questions we receive is regarding vaccinations and/or medications to the Indian Subcontinent. Immunizations are not required to visit India. (Exception: If you are traveling from an area infected with Yellow Fever, you must have a certificate.) We do encourage all travelers to be current on routine immunizations. Sodha Travel also strongly recommends the Hepatitis A vaccine, where exposure occurs through contaminated food and water in developing countries.

Treasures in Kerala and Tamil Nadu

Kerala, a region in Southwest India, is known for its extensive backwaters, pristine beaches, and lush hill stations. Travelers can visit a tea plantation, stay overnight on a houseboat, enjoy an Ayurvedic massage, or experience an elephant safari. The most visited areas in Kerala include Cochin, Alleppey, Kumarakom, Periyar, Thekkady, Munnar, and Kovalam. However, there are many lesser known treasures in this beautiful region, including eco home stays, waterfalls, and historical plantations. Here are a few of my favorites:

Bollywood on Campus!

Last week, there was a surprise event on the Oregon State University campus: A Bollywood flash mob dance, choreographed by Neha Neelwarne. In all, 75 dancers shed jackets to reveal bright orange shirts and joined in the synchronized moves to the title music from the Hindi film Salaam-E-Ishq. After the performance ended in the Memorial Union Quad, the dancers quietly drifted back into the crowd.

Experience the Andamans!

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are an archipelago in the Bay of Bengal. Of the 572 islands, only 36 are inhabited. Once a British colony, Andaman/Nicobar became an Indian Union Territory in 1950, with direct rule of its 370,000 residents from Delhi. The main island is divided into three areas: North Andaman, Middle Andaman, and South Andaman. Port Blair, the capital, is located in South Andaman and foreigners are required to have a permit to visit the islands. Visitors enjoy the serenity, pristine beaches, thermal mud pools, tropical forests, and mangroves, as well as excellent scuba diving in the coral reefs. Commercial fishing has been banned for over sixty years, resulting in an oasis of marine life. There is also an added attraction: The ocean swimming elephants!

Sodha Travel is excited to offer a special to the beautiful Andamans. Packages start from just $915 per person for a fixed departure every Sunday and include the following:
