Group Travel - Tripthi

IISAC’s high-end travel division called Tripthi is developed for educated travelers to visit and discover the real Kerala for 6-20 days. This travel program is uniquely developed and is drastically different from other tour programs already existing in Kerala. This was developed very similar to National Geographic and Smithsonian’s world famous discovery tours of various continents and exotic locations.


Based on IISAC’s 15 year experience of study abroad program of India for US universities, our experts created a specific curriculum for Tripthi travelers which includes lectures of general interest, cultural immersion activities in cuisines, costumes, yoga, meditation, dance, music and martial arts and carefully selected travel destinations including sandy beaches, serene backwaters, farm lands, lofty mountains, wild life sanctuaries, spice gardens and cultural centers.


This program will also provide you with an opportunity to encounter the uniqueness of Kerala- its history, its socio-economic factors and its culture. For this, we will host discussions and invite subject experts to explore these topics.


Our travelers can also share their global perspectives while visiting Kerala.


Travelers spend time interacting with locals to gain glimpses of Kerala beyond the glossy photos. In addition, interested travelers are invited to lead discussions on a topic of choice with local students.
