What's included in this trip
India & Nepal Experience 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.
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.
Khajuraho is a small, friendly city that is best known for its Hindu and Jain temples that are adorned with erotic carvings depicting the Kama Sutra.
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.
Delhi has been an important city in India for well over 2000 years, and its cultural richness and diversity radiates from every corner.
Nestled in a valley and sitting on a lake so still it reflects the mountains, Pokhara is the gateway to the Annapurna Ranges and Nepal's second largest city.
Bandipur is a delightful Nepalese town with traditional wooden houses, narrow streets and daily life spilling out into the streets, the same as it has been for centuries.
Head to Chitwan National Park and get to know the wildlife of the region. Search for Indian rhinos, deer and exotic birdlife in the park and, if you're lucky, maybe spot a tiger. Afterwards, watch a Tharu dance troupe perform a cultural program before a tasty dinner. The following morning, hit the Rapti River in a canoe to see marsh mugger crocodiles before jumping into a jeep and exploring a nearby village.
Appreciate the peaceful simplicity of Bhaktapur while walking down narrow streets from square to square or along cobblestone laneways to watch local traditions come alive.
After breakfast, return to Kathmandu for a final team dinner and to celebrate this adventure through India and Nepal.
