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 generations of 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 rare black-horned rhinos in Chitwan National Park
Fall in love with Nepal, prayer flags and stupas in vibrant Kathmandu

1. This trip starts with a Welcome Meeting in Delhi on day 1 at 1pm.
2. A single supplement is available on this trip and is applicable for all nights with the exception of the overnight train.
3. The main dome on the Taj Mahal will undergo mud pack therapy due to begin in April 2017. It is likely the entire dome will be obscured by iron scaffolding. Portions of the white marble façade will be covered in mud and plastic sheets during the cleaning process. The restorations will be carried out in sections and the work on the dome is expected to last one year.

Intrepid travel is a safe, fun & exciting way to discover & explore our world with the comfort of small groups. The tour guides are exceptional at accommodating different personalities & needs of the tourists with excellent understandable language skills.This was our first Intrepid tour which my husband was hesitant to commit to, on our return home we booked another Intrepid tour within the week. The standard of the Hotels & food was a surprise and surpassed our expectations many times considering the budget category we chose. The adventure of the tour has given us bragging rights we never thought we would be entitled to with memories & photo's to last us forever. We can't wait for our next Intrepid adventure!!
