Overview

Book
Save $280 on this trip
Anybody can view the sights of India by foot or bus — but you’re not just anybody. Instead, get off the beaten path and see India in a very untypical way — by train. Over two weeks, you’ll head north into Sikkim and Darjeeling via vans and local trains (including the famous toy trains in Darjeeling), giving you an up close and personal experience with authentic India. There’ll be plenty of palaces and forts to spot both on the train and off, and you’ll still get all the social elements of travelling with a group. Add in local meals and a large helping of culture, and this is a trip that’ll stay with you for a long time.

Highlights

    • Savour a local lunch in Darjeeling
    • Ride a World Heritage-listed toy train
    • Watch the sunrise on the Ganges
    • Experience the bustle of Delhi.
