Foreign Travel Advice

If you have never visited India and want to see the key must dos, then this is the trip for you. It starts in Kathmandu and travels through the foothills of the Himalayas, allowing enough time in Nepal to see the differences between these two countries and enjoy Chitwan National Park and then it really gets into its stride in India.

The chaos of Varanasi can be a bit of a shock to the system, but add in the history and culture of the Mogul heartlands around Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Delhi and the splendours of the Pink City ofJaipur and you have a glimpse of India you will not forget.

For a slower pace of trip, with more in Nepal, there is also a 24 day Northern India & Nepal trip (WND).

This is a perfect trip for those who are short of time, but want to see the highlights of Northern India. Small hotels and guesthouses with limited camping make this an easy journey, but there are some long distances to cover.

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.

Please note: If joining in Kathmandu you will be met by a local guide on the first day where you will have a brief meeting at 6pm. On the second day you will be transported by private transport to Chitwan National Park where you will join your overland leaders and truck!

Please note that many of the options listed below 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.
