The Indian Travel Craftsman
It all started in 1977, when travel to India was still exclusively reserved to adventurers, scholars and hippies. A young man from Kashmir, who was really fond of meeting strangers, helped visitors discover the newly opened region of Ladakh. He worked alone out of his bag, constantly weaving ties with the local population. Through a chance meeting, the blessings of a Buddhist Rimpoche were bestowed upon this venture in the form of the name ‘Tushita’. Today, Tushita Travels is a renowned and highly trusted travel agency in India. Kamalan is a part of Tushita, conceived by the desire of the younger generation to send a message on the digital medium, hoping to connect with a special kind of traveller, one who is searching to apprehend India through Indian eyes, to share with us the beauty we love. Kamalan means born from the lotus, the strongest symbol of purity in the Eastern traditions, evoking the blossoming of an extraordinary travel experience. While a young contemporary company, Kamalan embodies Tushita’s much revered qualities, social values and profound knowledge of India.
