Festive Greetings!!

It’s that time of the year when we paint the world red with the colours of joy, celebration and togetherness, as Santa gets ready to climb down our chimneys to spread warmth and lots of presents on the occasion of Christmas!! Warm wishes from our Le Passage family to you, your friends and loved ones.

In this week’s edition read about the skiing destination of Jammu & Kashmir, Gulmarg which is a beautiful experience in the winter season, read about the bizarre experience of Chandipur beach in Orissa known for a shore that disappears in low tides; road travel made luxurious than any business class air travel with the finest luxury coaches in India, Uber Coaches; also join the celebrations of Kochi Carnival, an annual fiesta that reverberates the town in this festive fervor.

Hope you enjoy reading this India Update, as much as we did putting it together for you.

Have a merry week ahead!
