Optional Post-tour Extension: Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal
Mystical and spiritual, chaotic and confounding, India abounds with riches that invite your personal exploration. Start the tour in bustling Delhi, the apex of the country's Golden Triangle, where we explore the sights of Old Delhi and New Delhi. Continue to legendary Jaipur, one of the great cities of the Rajput known for its pink sandstond buildings and dine in the home of a multi-generational Rajasthan family. Search for elusive Bengal tigers and other wildlife at Ranthambore National Park, once a royal hunting ground, and enjoy a two-night stay at Ranthambore Tiger Preserve. Embark on an afternoon camel safari to meet the Meena tribespeople in Kalakho. Travel to Agra to visit the sublime Taj Mahal as well as Agra Fort, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Visit the evocative Hindu temples at Khajuraho. Witness Hindu pilgrims performing their rituals on the Ganges River in the holy city of Varanasi where we conclude our exploration of India. A 5-day/5-night post-tour extension to the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal is available.
