Highlights of India and Nepal SummaryAdd to Shortlist
It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.
Jaipur was designed by royalty and has delighted visitors for centuries with its pink-hued buildings, wonderful bazaars and rainbow of bright colours dancing along hectic streets.
A small town by India's standards, Karauli retains a lovely rural feel and has some impressive palaces and heritage buildings.
Famed for the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, Agra is a city with a fascinating history and is rich in Mughal heritage, lush gardens and exquisite buildings and temples.
Meaning 'hidden', Orchha is a small village with a grand history and is covered with 16th-century temples and buildings still standing proud.
Allahabad is the second oldest city in India and sits on the confluence of the holy rivers Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati. Sacred to the Hindus as a place of worship and ritual, the Ganges is also the lifeblood of millions of Indian people.
The holy city of Varanasi, sitting on the River Ganges for thousands of years, attracts scores of pilgrims and travellers wanting to discover something divine.
The great pilgrimage site where Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was born, Lumbini is awash with monasteries, temples and saffron-coloured robes.
Home to tigers, one-horned rhinos, leopards and hundreds of other species, beautiful Chitwan National Park covers hundreds of square kilometres of forests, grasslands and flood plains.
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peaks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
