Overview

Book
Travel from India to Nepal on an overland trip from Delhi to Kathmandu. From reminders of the Mughal dynasty in northern India to the snow-capped Himalayas of Nepal, this trip will truly inspire. Witness the colour and contrast between the bazaars of Delhi, the jungle in Orchha and the sacred Ganges. Be awed by the Taj Mahal and see sunrise over the holy city of Varanasi. Come face-to-face with pilgrims, villagers, holy men and generations of shopkeepers. For those wanting to travel by land between these two very different neighbours, this is the perfect journey.

Highlights

    • Travel on foot and by cycle rickshaw to the heart of Old Delhi, where ancient temples stand against billboards advertising Bollywood blockbusters.
    • Bigger and more beautiful than any photo can capture, the Taj Mahal is a triumph of Mughal architecture that promises to inspire even the weariest travellers.
    • Learn to whip up some central Indian staples during a cooking demonstration at home with our friends in Orchha, the perfect opportunity to experience an authentic slice of Indian family life.
    • Learn about the Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist religions as you're immersed in the culture, sights and smells of India and Nepal.
    • Spend an evening ‘glamping’ in a cool and comfortable permanent tented camp in Orchha, a peaceful contrast to the chaotic overnight train.
    • See pilgrims praying and bathing along the ghats of the sacred Ganges River during an unforgettable sunrise cruise in Varanasi, one of India's holiest cities.
    • Rise in the cool half-light of dawn and watch the sunrise while you glide over the River Ganges on a small riverboat.
    • Join pilgrims during a visit to the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, where evidence of a shrine dated before 550 BC was uncovered in 2013.
    • Stay in a lodge and wake to the calls of the jungle in Chitwan National Park, then embark on a jeep or canoe safari (season depending) in search of rhino, deer, monkeys and a wide array of bird life.
    • From flamboyant, hidden temples and colourful prayer flags to rich cultural heritage and delicious cuisine, you'll soon discover that Kathmandu is so much more than just a stopover town.

Excellent I would encourage you to provide Bhagi the best compensation available. He undoubtedly the best leader you have, across all tours. He will be recruited by someone else unless you take care of him. I cannot sing his praises high enough.

The tour was amazing and we got to do everything from having tea with the locals in India to see rhinos and Mount Everest in Nepal. Bhagi has been amazing during the trip. He has shown a great deal of knowledge and been more than willing to share it with us. He has shown us that he cares for us when we have been ill and it is easy to see that he has an honest ambition to help us to get as good experience as possible. He has been a part of the group and was always there to answer any questions. Bhagi is a purely good person and is very easy to be around. He shows good spirit. He helped to make my experience in India and Nepal to a memory that I will never forget.
