In this 16 day holiday, we start in Delhi, the capital city of India. We follow in the footsteps of Mughal emperors and colonial overlords, explore the wonderful medieval monuments of Gwalior and Orchha and gaze upon the infamous carvings at the temples of Khajuraho. Seek out the epitome of the natural world – the Bengal tigers at Bandhavgarh National Park. Visiting the timeless setting in Varanasi, one of the oldest and holiest cities on earth, where we watch the flowing waters of the Ganges reputedly dividing the worlds of men and gods. Finally, we stand amongst the Buddhist ruins of Bodh Gaya, where the Lord Buddha himself attained enlightenment. All in all, this is a wonderful offbeat India tour, taking in many cultural highlights.
