Think outside of the triangle on this roaring Indian adventure that includes Ranthambhore.
From the honking horns of Delhi’s rickshaws, to the glistening beauty of the Taj Mahal and a whole heap of flavoursome food in between, immerse your senses in the colourful chaos on this mind blowing, one-week trip through India. Spot the majestic tiger in Ranthambhore National Park, dance to bhangra bangers at a Bollywood blockbuster, see pink in the fiercely flamboyant city of Jaipur, be mesmerised by the pavilion of mirrors in Amber Fort and tikka-bite out of Delhi’s food scene – from spicy samosas to tongue-tingling tandoori. With all the included highlights and plenty of optional extras, create your own adventure in a country that nowhere else on earth can prepare you for.
The Taj Mahal is the mother of all mausoleums and a big part of Agra’s allure. Capture your best selfie in front of this marble masterpiece on an included visit to this Indian icon.
With so much going on in the vibrant and chaotic capital of Delhi, a guide should almost be a requirement – let your expert leader navigate you through its busy, bustling and bold streets.
From survivors to Sheroes, hang out at a cafe run by female acid attack survivors that encourages Indian society to re-evaluate its norms about beauty and appearance.
Snap pics in front of a slew of ornate pink-hued buildings in the fabulously photogenic Jaipur and check yourself out in the pavilion of mirrors at Amber Fort.
Ranthambhore National Park is the best location in India to spot the majestic tiger, keep your eyes peeled for these elusive creatures on an included 4WD safari.
As this is a Basix trip, there is plenty of free time built into the itinerary for you to enjoy as you wish in each destination. Your leader will take you on an orientation walk to get your bearings and give you plenty of suggestions, but then what you do next is up to you! Please consider spending money for optional sightseeing that isn't included in the trip cost when budgeting for your journey.
The regions visited on this trip can be extreme in temperature. It’s important to prepare for hot temperatures during the day and cooler climates in the evening. Rajasthan in particular can be very hot, especially in the summer. Layers are the best way to tackle any disparities in weather.
Part of travelling with Intrepid means respecting local cultures and sensibilities. That way you get the most out of your interactions with local people. We visit a lot of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.
