With the exceptional presence of Pascal Bruckner, French novelist and essayist.

With this itinerary, PONANT invites you to discover the wonders of India and Sri Lanka, during a 13-day cruise around the Indian peninsula. From Mumbai to Chennai, fall under the spell of these eastern lands marked by Buddhist and Hindu traditions. 

You will board Le Champlain in Mumbai, India’s cultural and economic capital.

You will first discover Goa, a former colony of the Portuguese Indies, prized for its beaches and its rich cultural heritage, in particular a collection of late 16th-century churches and convents, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your ship will then arrive in Kerala, on Malabar Coast, in south-western India. From Cochin, a former royal town where the air is rich with the aroma of cardamom and cloves, you will have the opportunity to discover, aboard traditional boats, the fishing villages settled along the banks of the “backwaters”, a network of lakes and canals that criss-cross the lush landscapes of Kerala.

Le Champlain will then reach Sri in Galle. Admire the fortifications of this old town, testimony to its Portuguese and Dutch heritage and a UNESCO World Heritage site, before discovering Trincomalee. Do not miss to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of historic city of Polonnaruwa, a fortified city from the 11th century, and the splendid golden Temple of Dambulla.

Finally, your ship will call at Chennai, formerly Madras.
