Dream . Explore . Discover

Seven continents of this earth conjure up the magic like the seven colours of a rainbow- harmonious in unity, but distinctive in identity. Once you experience the beauty of each of these continents, the voyage never ends. It is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey. It's a new world. A world that begins with you. A journey of a thousand miles. A journey that begins with a small step taken by you. Let that step be with your trusted companion-nimbus holidays.

Thanks a lot for making our trip that much more memorable. Really loved the suggestion of place "Shoja" as am sure would have never gone until there on my own. The place was beautiful and scenic and we all loved it immensely. We are already looking at a possibility of another vacation soon and will definitely let you know should we plan one for suggestions. Thanks again for making our holidays so much better.
