Beginning in Nepal's atmospheric capital, travel overland through the passes of the Himalayas heading for the jungle and going in search of tigers in Chitwan. Crossing the border into India, travel to the incomparable city of Varanasi. Visit the temples of Khajuraho and Orchha and camp surrounded by deserted palaces.

Visit the beautiful city of Jaipur before overlanding across Rajasthan, where we take a camel trek into the Thar Desert. Explore Jaisalmer and Jodhpur before continuing our adventure across Rajasthan, where we'll make for the lakeside city of Udaipur.

Khajuraho was once the capital of the Chandella Kings who built the magnificent Hindu and Jain temples here around 1000 AD. Considered to be 'one of the seven wonders of India', the temples have been almost perfectly preserved.
Make the journey to Rajasthan's Bikaner, a fascinating town to explore with its striking palaces, temples and fort.
Explore the Thar Desert outside Jaisalmer from high atop a camel and perhaps even sleep out among the dunes. Visit the Jaisalmer Fort and marvel at the huge city walls.
An essence of romance is imbued in every stone of Udaipur and a walk through the old town brings a surprise with every corner. Walk the shores of Udaipur's Lake Pichola, look up at the towering City Palace and enjoy an evening haveli cultural performance.
Once known as the 'city of joy' and dating back many centuries, the hilltop fort of Mandu is an evocative and slightly eerie place to explore.
Experience Indian rural life on an overnight camping expedition in the countryside.
Home to massive bazaars and the lights of Bollywood, Mumbai has a wealth of things to sample, taste, try and buy - and plenty of top notch sightseeing. Set off to explore this quintessential Indian city and mark the conclusion of the trip with a hot curry and cold beer.
