Temples and the Ganges

Northern India, Madhya Pradesh 8 nights Prices on request

For anyone with an interest in the cultural and religious history of northern India, this tour is the perfect fit. Arriving in Delhi, you will spend two nights visiting ancient forts and temples as well as Lutyens’ stylish 20th century boulevards.

Heading south by train for five hours, you will be met by your private driver and guide in Gwalior, dominated by its 15th century fort with its magnificent tiled façade. Six hours’ drive from Gwalior, Khajuraho is famed for its collection of erotically decorated temples, all around 1,000 years old. This is one of the most fascinating destinations to explore Hindu and Jain temples.

A short flight will then take you to Varanasi, arguably the most sacred Hindu pilgrimage destination and its location on the banks of the River Ganges has an unforgettable atmosphere. You will take a boat ride on the Ganges as well as experiencing the nightly Aarti ceremony to witness the importance of life on the river.
