Visit India and Nepal on an adventure from Delhi to Kathmandu
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 shopkeepers. For those wanting to travel by land between these two very different neighbours, this is the perfect journey.
Explore Old Delhi by foot and cycle rickshaw, where ancient temples stand against extravagant billboards advertising Bollywood films
Discover how the Taj Mahal, one of the most recognisable buildings in the world, still has the power to surprise even the most experienced travellers
Forget about setting an alarm, there’s only one way to wake up in this world and that’s with a sunrise sail along the Ganges
The chance to come face-to-face with black-horned rhinos in Chitwan National Park
Fall in love with Nepal, prayer flags and spicy chai in stunning Kathmandu

This is our second trip with Intrepid and we have loved every minute. Intrepid's guides are knowledgeable, flexible and amazingly good at what they do. Going to new places, learning about new cultures, seeing fantastic things, meeting new friends and eating fabulous food are all part of the Intrepid experience.. we look forward to our next trip with Intrepid!
