Detailed Description

Your travels through Nepal and India will be memorable because of the details. While Mt. Everest and the Taj Mahal may provide excellent photos, these enigmatic countries are also noteworthy for the small moments that nobody else sees. From the head wiggle of a boatsman on the Ganges, and a rhino that looks at you through the bushes to the tastes on the tongue and sounds that float around 3,000-year-old city streets, every moment will be unforgettable. Traveling slowly will be rewarding as it reveals the best of Nepal and India. This private three-week tour has been tailored for senior travelers seeking a slow and leisurely means of exploration. While you travel one way from Kathmandu to Delhi, your journey through the countries’ famous and lesser-known highlights will consist of private tours throughout the trip.

Begin your time in Nepal, where remarkable landscapes set the scene for cultural connections. See how Buddhism and Hinduism come together in Kathmandu, take a helicopter flight to the world’s highest mountains, and spend serene afternoons overlooking World Heritage Sites. Then, fly to Chitwan, and you’ll be immersed in a different world on a jungle safari that brings you face to face with some of the greatest animals to walk the earth. In the lush foliage, rhinos and elephants will become your neighbors as you try out a variety of safari activities. Afterward, it will be off to Lumbini, where the birthplace of Buddha is all about tranquility and moving moments with the locals.

Your first stop in India will be Varanasi, the country’s holiest city. Explore the River Ganges, follow the spirituality, and open your senses to all the different Indian impressions. Next, you’ll visit Orchha, a regal town that’s off the standard path, seemingly frozen in a distant time. Agra, Jaipur, and Delhi will fill your final week, and these famous destinations are packed with both architectural relics and fresh experiences. You’ll experience the real India as well as the iconic attractions, as shown by expert guides in each city. Cruise above the Pink City in a hot air balloon, cook with the locals, tour historic bazaars, and enjoy the concept of slow travel through the streets of Nepal and India.
