North India Revealed

From £845 for 22 days
Trip Overview
Embark on a 22-day odyssey through India’s intoxicating north with Lonely Planet, powered by Intrepid. Discover sights, smells and flavours that will blaze their way into your memory and stay there forever. See towering sandstone fortresses, pilgrims praying on riverbanks, Maharajah mementos in a ghostly palace and camels silhouetted on a desert landscape. India can be a daunting place at times, even for experienced travellers, but with the guidance of your local leader you’ll be navigating the crowds, dodging the cows and eating the best chaat from a cart in no time! From the beating heart of Delhi to the holy city of Varanasi – this is north India.

Please Note: We are aware of maintenance work scheduled at the Taj Mahal complex which is due to last until late 2018. There may be times when there is scaffolding around the building or over the dome but the site is scheduled to remain open for the duration of all works.

Trip Highlights

•   Discover the ancient forts, lake palaces, rural villages and colourful cities of Rajasthan: sandy red Jaisalmer, blue Jodhpur, white Udaipur and pink Jaipur

•   Ride out into the Thar Desert on a camel safari. Feast on Rajasthani cuisine at sunset before bunking down to camp between the sand dunes

•   The world famous Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary is home to hundreds of bird species. Share in the delight and knowledge of local amateur bird-watchers, as you’re pedalled around the park in a cycle rickshaw

•   The Taj Mahal in Agra may be one of the most recognisable buildings in the world, but its poetic history and beauty have the power to surprise even the most jaded travellers

•   Pushkar and Varanasi are among the holiest cities in India. Climb to hilltop temples at sunrise, dodge cows in the street, and observe pilgrims praying and bathing along the ghats of the sacred Ganges River during a boat cruise
