Make the most of our JOURNEYS OF DISCOVERY special!

Lonely Planet Magazine India’s July 2016 issue takes what you thought you knew about a place and shows you that there is so much more to discover in it.

ICELAND, for instance, is not all ice. It is, in fact, a fascinating place to visit in the summer – sample volcano-baked bread or take the Ring Road that goes round the country’s periphery, exploring waterfalls and lava beds along the way. Another example of a little-known land is ETHIOPIA, home to one of the oldest forms of Christianity. DELHI, too, is not about just Mughal architecture – there are layers upon layers of architecture here, all built over eight centuries. And, while you’re at it, flip over to find your PERFECT ISLANDS, all of which, again, offer more than beaches and tans.
