Foreign Travel Advice

There is no better way of visiting Northern India, than balancing it with Nepal. chalk and cheese, or chaos and calm. In Nepal, we hike through the gentle foothills, through rural villages, overlooked by the mighty Annapurnas; we stay in beautiful heritage homes in remote towns and villages and we look for the tigers and rhinos of Chitwan National Park.

Crossing into India, the frenetic pace of life is amplified to a crescendo on the banks of the Ganges at Varanasi and in the hustle and bustle of Delhi. Our route takes us through the heartland of the Mogul Empire with its fabulous monuments and forts; the Taj Mahal may be the most famous, but Agra's Red Fort and Akbar's great city of Fatehpur Sikri have to be seen to be believed. Then on into Rajasthan to the beauty and charm of the Pink City of Jaipur and the incomparable Amber Palace.

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

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.
