We are organising another holiday to Mysore, India in January 2019.
Dates: 12th – 25th January
What to expect:
- Beautiful sunny weather
- Delicious food (buffet meals, including vegetarian options)
- Special diets catered for
- Good company and friendly atmosphere
- A chance to meet new people
- Wonderful shopping opportunities
- Improve and extend your knitting techniques
The Green Hotel: The Hotel was set up as a model of sustainable tourism by the Charities Advisory Trust, our parent charity. All profits are distributed to charitable and environmental projects in India. It’s a small Palace, with a garden block. For the last 10 years our 2 acre garden has won the prize for the best garden in Mysore. There will be plenty of time for relaxation and sightseeing.
Led by Renée Callahan: Designer and host of the East London Knit Podcast, Renée Callahan will be leading our Mysore holiday in January 2019.
Sightseeing: Mysore is a charming town (RK Narayan’s Malgudi). It still retains its old world charm – full of palaces, a world famous market, temples and Raj style buildings, bird sanctuary and nearby wildlife reserves.
Getting there: The nearest international airport is Bangalore. We can arrange to meet you at the airport. The most usual choice of flight is The British Airways one leaving Heathrow around 2 o’clock arriving at Bangalore at around midnight our time (5am Indian time).
The return flight is BA Bangalore-Heathrow, leaving around 7 am, you can leave the Green Hotel around midnight, to get the Bangalore flight (these are current flight schedules and may change). Some guests choose other airlines – such as Gulf or Jet that have internal flights in India. You can also extend your stay either at the beginning or at the end of the holiday.
Health: Mysore is not a malaria area, but we cannot guarantee that a stray mosquito will not travel in from other areas.
