Delhi – Jaipur - Agra – Jhansi - Khajuraho - Varanasi - Delhi
Type of Trip: Road Trip | Start City: Delhi | End City: Delhi
This 11 day tour is a special opportunity to explore India’s Golden Triangle and two culturally-significant Indian cities in one very memorable journey. The Golden Triangle includes Delhi, India’s capital and its blend of old and new cultures; Jaipur, majestic gem of the royal state of Rajasthan; and Agra, home to the incomparable Taj Mahal. In Khajuraho we will visit the UNESCO World Heritage site that is comprised of a group of Hindu temples and Jain temples, famous for their nagara-style architectural symbolism and their erotic sculptures. Then to Varanasi, an ancient city of great spiritual significance situated on the holy Ganges River. One cannot help but be moved by spending a couple of days in Varanasi, visiting temples and experiencing the nightly Hindu ritual at the banks of the Ganges River in the evening, and a boat ride along the river at sunrise. Then we will return to Delhi for a final taste of cosmopolitan life in India. Along the way we will stop at off the beaten path places and enjoy special activities, all included, with plenty of time to explore and enjoy on your own.
