Detailed Description

Experience the top of the world in spirit and reality during your 10-day tour of India and Nepal. The marvels of India represent the rich history and captivating culture reflecting empires, kingdoms, and the contemporary republic. Nepal embodies a rich connection to the spirit, the surrounding nature symbolized by the Himalayas, and the fast pace of rushing rickshaws adding vibrancy to Kathmandu. Blend historical monuments, ancient temples, Buddhist stupas, lavish palaces for the trip of a lifetime dedicated to showing you the Taj Mahal, Mount Everest, and the exciting and timeless cultures of India and Nepal.

The journey is suitable for people of all ages and effortlessly blends luxury with exploration, and begins with your arrival at Indira Gandhi International Airport. You settle into the comforts of your comfortable hotel in the heart of the new streets of the city located near the House of Parliament. Take some time exploring the remarkable history of Delhi with your private guide, who introduces you to the India Gate and the Presidential Palace in New Delhi, along with the Red Fort, Jama Masjid mosque, and ancient lanes of Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi. You also have the chance to visit Bangla Sahib, the largest Sikh temple in India and the 12th-century Qutb Minar.

Visit the city of Shahpura en route to Jaipur to explore the distinctive temples and sublime landscape. A guided tour of the Amber Fortress outside of Jaipur shows you lavish architectural embellishments and the fascinating artistry of the Rajput Kingdom. Marvel at the majestic ambiance of the City Palace in the heart of Old Jaipur, including the Palace of Winds, the 18th-century Jantar Mantar observatory, and the palace museum galleries, the latter of which hold regal costumes and ancient weapons. Discover the intimate architecture of the former Mughal capital at Fatehpur Sikri, home to extravagant palaces and a uniquely designed mosque before reaching Agra. Indulge in the highlight of your exploration in Agra with a visit to the Taj Mahal.

Witness the way the colors of the tomb shift during sunrise and sunset, spending the rest of the day at the 16th-century Agra Fort. Afterward, notice the cultural differences of daily life in Kathmandu and the distinctive atmosphere deriving from the high altitude, surrounding foothills, and blending of old and new architecture. Your scenic flight around Mount Everest brings a fascinating panorama of the Himalayas. Wandering the temples, stupas, and monuments of Kathmandu provide insight into the ways the city has evolved over nearly a millennium. The Kathmandu Valley offers another perspective of historical and contemporary life in the mountainous region, from devoted monks at the largest stupa in Nepal to the medieval streets of a city rebuilding after the 2015 earthquake.
