Foreign Travel Advice

This is our ultimate journey through the Indian Subcontinent. It's a full 90 days and travels across Nepal and all the way around India. Whilst we take the time to visit the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan, Goa, Kerala, Agra and Jaipur we also takes in the parts of India that you have probably never heard of. These are often just as spectacular as the highlights and even more fulfilling. Take the five days that we spend exploring the tribal lands of Odisha, a remote area populated by indigenous Indian tribes, or our four day visit to Karmi Farm in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling or the wonderful three days of hill hiking on a ridge overlooking the Annapurna's in Nepal.

This trip is as much about the peoples of India as the sites and through a variety of home stays, city visits and the experiences of day to day life whilst travelling that will really get you under the skin of this great area. We don't forget the great cities either and we visit the biggest of them all; Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and, of course, Kolkata.

A long overland tour that really gets to grips with India. Be prepared for the heat and a challenging lifestyle, as this is India and you will be travelling for 90 days. There will, also, be some long days of driving but it will also be a most rewarding journey. We us mainly small hotels and hostels, with a small amount of camping.

Head out on a fantastic trek along the ridge at the start of the Mardi Himal Trail taking in the unreal vistas of Annapurna and Machhapuchhare in the mountain ranges nearby
Witness the fascinating and impressive local tradition of Tharu stick dancing
Take a canoe ride down the river spotting local wildlife

At dawn drift down the holy River Ganges in Varanasi

Guided tour of the famous erotic temples at Khajuraho

Day 1 - Kathmandu (19th December 2020)
Border Information: If you are joining the trip in Kathmandu, you will most likely enter Nepal at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport (IATA code: KTM).

Wrapped around the Himalayan mountain range is the remarkable country of Nepal. It is the birthplace of the Buddha and is a land of legend and beauty. Within its narrow confines Nepal contains an utterly spectacular variety of culture and landscapes. Nepal has a stunning natural beauty and a simple charm.

There is an important group meeting at 6:00pm. Your leader will leave a note at reception telling you where and when this important meeting will take place.

Please note that many of the optional activities listed will only be possible for those with extra time in Kathmandu before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Kathmandu.
