Summary

Delhi to Kathmandu

Travel from India to Nepal on an overland trip from Delhi to Kathmandu. From reminders of the Mughal dynasty in northern India to the snow-capped Himalayas of Nepal, this trip will truly inspire. Witness the colour and contrast between the bazaars of Delhi, the jungle in Orchha and the sacred Ganges. Be awed by the Taj Mahal and see sunrise over the holy city of Varanasi. Come face-to-face with pilgrims, villagers, holy men and shopkeepers. For those wanting to travel by land between these two very different neighbours, this is the perfect journey.

Day 1 Delhi
It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.

Day 2 Agra
Famed for the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal, Agra is a city with a fascinating history and is rich in Mughal heritage, lush gardens and exquisite buildings and temples.

Days 3-5 Orchha
Meaning 'hidden', Orchha is a small village with a grand history and is covered with 16th-century temples and buildings still standing proud.

Day 6 Ganges Boat Trip
Allahabad is the second oldest city in India and sits on the confluence of the holy rivers Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati. Sacred to the Hindus as a place of worship and ritual, the Ganges is also the lifeblood of millions of Indian people.

Days 7-8 Varanasi
The holy city of Varanasi, sitting on the River Ganges for thousands of years, attracts scores of pilgrims and travellers wanting to discover something divine.

Day 9 Lumbini
The great pilgrimage site where Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was born, Lumbini is awash with monasteries, temples and saffron-coloured robes.

Days 10-12 Chitwan National Park
Home to tigers, one-horned rhinos, leopards and hundreds of other species, beautiful Chitwan National Park covers hundreds of square kilometres of forests, grasslands and flood plains.

Days 13-15 Kathmandu
Kathmandu is like an alluring whirlwind of sights, sounds, smells and colours. Almost overwhelming, its charm and history peaks out from the most unexpected places rendering most visitors enamoured.
