Your tour encompasses the very best India and Nepal have to offer. The breathtaking beauty and majesty of the Taj Mahal was created by thousands of craftsmen for Emperor Shah Jahan, in his wife’s memory. Nearby is the 11th century Agra Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site, fought over, destroyed and rebuilt over the centuries to become a walled city housing palaces, pavilions, mosques, gardens and priceless treasure, as befits the seat of the vast Moghul Empire.
City of temples, palaces and ‘ghats’ descending to holy waters, Varanasi has been a cultural and religious centre for thousands of years. One of the seven sacred cities of the Hindus you’ll see for yourself the towering Dhamekh Stupa where Buddha revealed his Eightfold Path to nirvana.
Nepal is a complete contrast and rich in some of the world’s most astonishing natural beauty. You’ll take a once-in-a-lifetime flight to the Himalayas, seeing the staggering white peaks of Mount Everest, visit the captivating medieval city of Kathmandu, seek out rhinos, bears and tigers on an elephant-back safari through the jungle and share the peace and tranquillity of Buddhist monks at prayer.
