Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Embrace your inner hippy in Kathmandu, watch the sunset over the Himalayas in Pokhara, search for the one-horned rhino in Chitwan, check out Buddha's hometown of Lumbini, sail along the sacred Ganges in Varanasi, be mesmerised by the Taj Mahal, hang out in a palace at Tordi Garh, go bazaar mad in Jaipur and finish up in big and busy Delhi. The road from Kathmandu to Delhi is long and winding, but oh so worth it.

  1. Day 1
    Kathmandu
    Namaste! Welcome to Nepal. This Himalayan adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6 pm where you'll meet your tour guide and new travel pals. Look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask the hotel reception where it will take place.If you arrive early, there's plenty to do in this vibrant city. Kathmandu’s most important Buddhist shrine, Swayambhunath Stupa and the nearby ‘City of Devotees’ Bhaktapur are well worth a visit. For some more structure, there are a number of Urban Adventures day tours that can help you delve deeper into Kathmandu's ancient architecture and rich cultural heritage.
  2. Day 2
    Pokhara
    Leave Kathmandu behind this morning and hop on your private vehicle to the peaceful town of Pokhara, known as the gateway to the Annapurna Circuit – a popular trekking trail in the Himalayas that attracts travellers and hiking enthusiasts from around the world. The journey takes almost 7 hours so make sure you’ve downloaded your favourite music or packed a good book as you journey through Nepal’s picturesque landscape. On arrival, join your leader on an orientation walk around Pokhara before enjoying an evening at leisure. The lakeside area has great shopping opportunities, bars, and restaurants or perhaps you might fancy another massage – you’re on holiday after all!
  3. Day 3
    Pokhara
    Wake up among the spectacular scenery of Pokhara and enjoy a boat ride across the lake (Phewa Tal), which is the second largest in Nepal. The rest of the day is yours to explore at your own pace, with plenty of optional activities to choose from, you can spend your time however you please! Why not start with a visit the International Mountain Museum to learn some amazing tales of past climbing expeditions. You might like to take a break by the water’s edge and indulge in the ultimate Nepalese dish for lunch – dal bhat – a hearty vegetarian meal consisting of rice and lentils. Pokhara has an interesting old area well worth exploring, as well as an elaborate Hindu temple and a Buddhist monastery. As the day closes, perhaps visit the Peace Pagoda – with spectacular views of the Annapurna mountains – and watch the sunset over the famous fishtail peak – Machhapuchhare.
  4. Day 4
    Chitwan National Park
    Pop on your safari hat as you drive to Chitwan National Park by private vehicle (approximately 6 hours). UNESCO (who know a thing or two about this kind of stuff) declared it a World Heritage site in 1984, and it offers some of the best wildlife viewing in Asia. Think the Jungle Book come to life with rhinos, deer, monkeys and a wide array of birds, all found here. If luck is on your side, you may even spot a wild elephant, sloth bear or leopard so keep your eyes peeled.
  5. Day 5
    Chitwan National Park/Madi Valley
    This morning you’ll hop aboard a jeep, meet your local guide and take a safari drive through Chitwan National Park. Chances are high you'll see a great one-horned rhinoceros and you might even catch a glimpse of one of the 100-or-so Bengal Tigers that call the park home. This evening, stay overnight at the Intrepid Foundation’s project, the Madi Valley Homestay. This project provides sustainable incomes and encourages the communities living on the fringes of Chitwan National Park to conserve the wilderness and wildlife around them. On arrival, the local men and women, dressed proudly in their traditional Magar attire, will be there to greet you and welcome you into their homes. In the evening enjoy a cultural performance by the locals where they demonstrate one of the oldest dance forms of the Magar community – the Maruni Naach.
  6. Day 6
    Lumbini
    Today travel by private vehicle to Nepal’s border town of Lumbini (about 5 hours). No ordinary border town, Lumbini is the birthplace of Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, and one of his four holy places of pilgrimage. Check out the beautiful Ashoka Pillars and hop on cycle rickshaws to the Maya Devi Temple, the actual site where Lord Buddha is thought to have been born.
  7. Day 7
    Nepal / India border crossing - Varanasi
    This is a long travelling day as you make your way into India, crossing the border at Sunauli and continuing on to Varanasi (approximately 9 hours including stops). One of holiest cities around, Varanasi is the ultimate destination for Hindu pilgrims who travel from far and wide to experience this spiritual city. Overflowing with temples, shrines and devotees, it might not be one of the world's cleanest cities but there’s no doubt it’s one of the most amazing. After your arrival, enjoy an evening at leisure and perhaps head out for your first taste of Indian cuisine – chicken tikka anyone?
  8. Day 8
    Varanasi
    Today’s an early start, but it’s completely worth it – a sunrise boat ride along the sacred Ganges is a revelation and even if you're not the spiritual sort, you can't help but get goose bumps. Pass the many ghats (stairs leading to the water) and temples along the river, and watch thousands of Hindu pilgrims cleanse their sins in the holy water as the sun rays bathe the surrounds in glorious shades of amber and orange. Afterwards, set off by auto rickshaw to the oldest part of the city, to explore its maze of narrow alleyways packed full of small shops, stalls and lumbering cows. See pilgrims performing rituals unchanged for hundreds of years and pass chiming temples as wafts of incense fill the air.
  9. Day 9
    Varanasi - Overnight Train
    Enjoy lots of free time to explore more of Varanasi before you get a unique slice of Indian life aboard an overnight sleeper train bound for Agra (approximately 10 hours). You could take a trip to nearby Sarnath, one of the four main Buddhist pilgrimage destinations. The site is where Buddha preached his message of the path to enlightenment and features several stupas and museums to explore. There’s also the crumbling 17th-century fort and palace on the eastern bank of the Ganges, Ram Nagar Fort. Otherwise, take the chance to perfect your yoga in the ultimate chakra-balancing place.
  10. Day 10
    Agra
    Agra might not be the prettiest city in the world, but the minute you check out its top-notch site that won’t matter one bit (of course, we're talking about the glorious Taj Mahal). You’ll arrive on a Friday, so the Taj is closed to visitors, but there are outstanding views from almost every hotel rooftop in the area. Enjoy a free day to explore Agra's alternative highlights. An optional trip on a motorised rickshaw takes you to some of the city’s best monuments. If you’ve got the energy, head out to Agra Fort and stroll the palatial gardens of this red sandstone stronghold (with cheeky monkeys in tow) or check out Akbar's Mausoleum, a beautiful sandstone and marble tomb built for the greatest of the Mughal emperors.
  11. Day 11
    Agra - Tordi
    It doesn’t matter who you are, the Taj Mahal will explode all your expectations with the morning light shimmering off its white marble surface. After your visit, jump into private transport and head off to the village of Tordi. This remote and rarely visited township offers a fantastic glimpse of the real Rajasthan, the locals will feed you and you'll sleep in a 16th-century palace with its owner as your host (and there's a ruined temple and fortress nearby). Settle in, then savour delicious local flavours in tonight’s included dinner.
    Meals: Dinner
  12. Day 12
    Jaipur
    Kick on in a private vehicle to Jaipur (about 3 hours), India's oh-so-pretty Pink City. You'll have plenty of free time here to haggle to your heart's content at the bazaars and backstreets where vendors sell a variety of textiles, precious and semi-precious gems and stunning blue pottery. Drop by one of India’s finest palaces, the Royal City Palace, where the guards’ moustaches are almost as impressive as the building itself. Food lovers will want to hit the streets for raj kachori chaat, a big fluffy chaat served with chutney, yoghurt, chilli and potato. Then cool off with a lassi from Lassiwala on MI road, Jaipur's oldest and most famous lassi shop. Cinema buffs won't want to miss the chance to take in a Bollywood blockbuster at the spectacular Raj Mandir Cinema.
  13. Day 13
    Jairpur
    If you're keen for a different view of the Pink City, an optional early morning hot air balloon ride is a trip highlight for many visitors. For more information please see the 'Important Notes' section of your trip notes. Later in the morning, you’ll drop by Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds), the impressive five-storey facade with pink and honeycombed windows is it the most photographed building in the country after the Taj Mahal. Then it’s out to the old capital of Amber and an exploration of the hilltop fort complex known as the Amber Fort. The rest of the day is free for you to spend as you like.
  14. Day 14
    Delhi
    Take a 5-hour train ride to India's capital. This exciting city is overflowing with incredible historic sites, museums and galleries, shops and endless bazaars. Watch one of the world's greatest shows unfold as people, cars, rickshaws and cows all work together in a kind of organised chaos. Sit back with a chai and let it all soak in. Later today, take the modern metro to Old Delhi and visit the old city's market area by foot, exploring Chandni Chowk and Connaught Place. Enjoy an optional dinner tonight with your group to say goodbye to this incredible country.
    Meals: Dinner
  15. Day 15
    Delhi
    There are no planned activities today, so why not delve into Delhi’s past on an Urban Adventure that honours the enduring legacy of India’s most influential figure – Gandhi. Hear stories of his courageous life, pore over artefacts and documents at the museum and walk in the footsteps of this much loved and sorely missed inspirational icon.
